Storybook Wonder | Oyster Bay Children’s Photographer

Well, here it is. After many months of planning and preparation, the first installment of the Fresh Faces Campaign was shot in July, and I’m so excited to share these photos. For this stylized session, I really wanted to focus on classic children’s books. I’m an avid book lover, from timeless literature to pop culture. In this technologically advanced world we live in, where we can instantly have books and magazines at our fingertips on our mobile devices like our tablets and smart phones, there’s still something about holding a physical book in my hands, and the smell when I walk into my public library or book store. I remember reading classics when I was young, opening up whole new worlds that stir the imagination, and I wanted to capture that in this session.

Finding my “Fresh Face” wasn’t hard, I actually knew it immediately when I saw her photo. A. reminds me so much of what I envision a little girl would look like right out of a story book, with her bouncing curls and soulful eyes. She was truly amazing to work with and so excited to play dress up, I hope she had as much fun as I did at the session! I worked with many amazing vendors to bring together the clothing, props and accessories, a full list is below, with a link to the to Pinterest style board as well.
