Matilda, the name means strength in battle. I could not think of a better shoot for Matilda then a Princess Warrior. She is feminine, beautiful and her strength permeates her eyes. She is known by those that love her to be an animal whisperer. I see her as part of a new generation of Princess Warriors, equally strong as they are beautiful. I enjoyed EVERY moment of creating this outfit for her.
This idea originated with a session I created years ago called “I See You”. The idea was a session for children that are starting to recognize their own strength and personality. This session gave parents an opportunity to connect with their child, celebrate who they are now and the child’s passions. Showing the child they are seen, heard and celebrated for who they are. The child is involved in the creation of the session and is excited to be celebrated. Here is an article by the Huffington Post about the concept on another level. This session is a gift for both the parents and children as it will be cherished for years to come. I look forward to doing more sessions like this, custom creating shoots around the individual child.
