Springtime in New Orleans is something truly special. The humidity hasn’t set in (usually), the flowers are blooming everywhere, and there is that little bit of magic that happens in the couple weeks before the heat sets in. All of these things make the perfect setting for spring fairies! Spring is my favorite time of year for fairies, because it truly epitomizes all the qualities of the fairy folk. One of the best places for fairy photos? Longue Vue House and Gardens. The grounds are amazing, ranging from formal gardens, fountains, wild gardens, and many secret nooks and crannies tucked in throughout the property. Truly a paradise for fairies and photos.
This blonde haired fairy stopped by for a session, and really, just look at her! She is the perfect fairy! Full of spunk, energy, giggles, and laughter. She told me some great jokes and made my day. Her little sister, who was only a few days old at the time, even joined in and spawned some tiny fairy wings! We spent some time bouncing from place to place, talking, and smelling all the flowers. Luckily for us, the iris’ were in bloom, so we even made a quick stop there. I love the contrast between her gorgeous lavender/gray dress and the yellow flowers throughout the gardens. Everything was perfect for this session – the setting, the light, the dress, and the fairy and newborn fairy.
Spring fairies are available select dates from March 15-April 15, 2018.
