Couture Youth Oregon Snow Photography

"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.

Vintage Oregon Snow Photography & Portrait Session

"The first fall of snow is not only an event, it is a magical event. You go to bed in one kind of world and wake up in another quite different. And if this is not enchantment, then where is it to be found?" ~JB Priestley

Snow in some places is a seasonal event but here in Southern Oregon it is a rare and magic gift to us all. I remember praying for it as a child. To wake up to that white glow and quiet. To know that the day to follow the world was going to be pure and fresh and serene. I love the Pacific Northwest and how it encompasses such a variety of seasons and colors. 

Beautiful Darian went out with me this morning to embrace the day as it unfolded. Some clothes from my props closet with a bright pop of red, a gorgeous ring and a vintage camera added finishing touches to the magic.
