The fairy shoot remains one of my absolute favourite shoots that we have at POP! Studios.
It was one of our first shoots, alongside Alice, and it will always have a special place because of that. One of the things that I love about our fairy shoots is that they are timeless and classic - a beautiful fairy will never go out of fashion!
Inspired by Cicely Mary Barker’s flower fairy paintings from the 1920’s, our fairy themed photo shoots are based in our secret garden – complete with magical lake, toadstools and sparkling lights.
The images from the fairy shoot that we did with our daughter, Matilda, still have pride of place in our home. I’ve popped it at the top of the blog for you to have a look! 😊 I was really keen that the fairy theme took centre-stage at our new Stotfold studio, alongside the Superhero shoots. We have done it so that the fairy set is a whole room of enchanted garden, it’s like walking into a magical forest. Seeing the look on people’s faces when they first walk in still makes me beam!
It’s lovely to watch the fairy experience being shot as well. I often pop my head in and see little ones completely absorbed in the moment. We get them making wishes with fairy dust and chasing fairies - it’s crazy what the imagination can do at that age! That immersive, interactive aspect of our shoots is definitely something that we thrive off, and it really makes it an experience rather than just a photoshoot.
I remember Matilda came away raving about how she saw the Queen of the Fairies… I struggled getting her out of the wings! Don’t you love it when they are so into something that they just won’t stop talking about it? 😊
