As most of you know, I am working on a series of fairytale shoots... and Cinderella was high on my list, but I definitely had to find the right girl. And I was so lucky to find Maritta - not only is she an amazing model (and super sweet), but she is also a fashion stylist. We worked together and came up with a few great concepts and I was so excited to see these images after we finished the shoot. I was even more excited when I got to editing and could really tweak them (although they didnt need much).
I really wanted to get away from the Disney/safe version... I wanted to get back to the darker, more original Grimm version, so if a few parts look a bit unfamiliar (like the bird), then catch up on your reading... and look forward to the second part of the shoot that will be upcoming.

I am definitely looking forward to continuing in on with the fairytale shoots - I have 2-3 more and then I will be done.... the next series will be very dark, gritty and raw - and very, very over-the-top - Im betting you can guess how excited I am - I will also be doing a casting call for that series, so if you are interested (and you dont have to be a professional model, I love all looks), then keep watching facebook for that.
Speaking of facebook, I have two different contests going on right now... a senior pictures contest and also Im doing a giveaway - I cant wait to see all the entries... what are you waiting for?
