Winter Magic | King George Virginia Child Photographer

"Children see magic because they look for it"
- Christopher Moore

I kept seeing all of these beautiful snow images in my facebook newsfeed but we just hadn't been lucky enough to get any snow.  Finally we got snow and I started trying to decide on what look I wanted to go for.  I knew I wanted to do something a little different.  I love the look of composite photography and knew that was the direction I wanted to go.  I asked Ava to help me pick out something for her to wear and she picked this dress because it was the color of snow.  In my mind I immediately thought snow white and how all the creatures of the forest would come to her.  I grabbed an apple on our way outside and headed out to try to match this vision I had in my head.  

It took several hours in photoshop to take the original photos (which was on it's own a beautiful shot) and turn it into something magical.  I will be working on a series of my children in fantasy/whimsical photos.  

What I love so much about composite photography is the ability to mix a bit of reality and fantasy and create something imaginative.  I always envied how painters and artists who have the ability to draw could take what it in their own imaginations and put it on paper.  As a photographer using this method of editing I can also do the same.  

If you would be interested in creating a look like this for a session with your kids contact me today and we can start dreaming up a vision.
