Redwood Forest Tween Dollcake Couture Photography

There is just something so magical about the Redwood Forest. I feel its pull always. It speaks to me in whispers of centuries past. Within it time always seems to slow and stand still and I just breathe it in.

This session was focused on a unique age bracket. I feel often this age is not documented as often in my photography and that is tweens. On this adventure session I was so excited to pair up and collaborate with another local photographer Amanda Fithian Photography. We ran a local Southern Oregon model search for three girls and selected Maggie, Tyra and Fiona. Each one brought their own unique personality and extended their own "look" to the session. One brunette, one redhead, and one blonde. 

We selected incredible gowns from Australia by Dollcake Oh So Girly and had them shipped in. These were joined by some incredible Grants Pass and Medford area vendors to create this elegance in the middle of Mother Nature's greatest canopy ~ The Redwoods. Thank you to Rosewood Vintage Rentals for incredible furniture pieces to help achieve our vision. To Beyond The Garden Gate and Clara for delicate floral forest crowns. To Beauty by Jen for gorgeous hair and just a touch of makeup. To American Vintage for incredible candle holders and vintage makeup items. To Shop River Rock for the glowing candles that lit our way in the dark dark rainly day woods that dripped just right. To Silk and Willow for some lovely ribbon details. 

Here is our elegant girls in the Redwoods:

"I am a princess. All girls are. Even if they live in tiny old attics. Even if they dress in rags, even if they aren't pretty, or smart, or young. They're still princesses."

~A Little Princess

The quote above is from one of my favorite stories of all time. I received the book when I was young and it has always been one of my most treasured along with The Secret Garden. This week waking up to an icy world seemed like the perfect time to venture out into a magic morning to capture a Southern Oregon covered in a soft glowing blanket. I brought along my little neighbor and friend Emma to model a dress I had shipped in from Australia by Dollcake Vintage for her. Emma has always reminded me of just what a fairy princess would look like if I were to ever meet one in real life.
