Unicorns: All things spring and Magical

May 10, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

It is officially spring! And of course with that comes lots of fun animal sightings such as Unicorns bunnies and fun loving baby critters. This April I decided to offer my first ever Unicorn mini shoot! Here is a little back story to the Mini sessions. 

My sweet daughter , who is 5 years old loves unicorns and My Little Pony! It is an obsession at our house. My in laws own an little Pony named Little P who my girl LOVES to ride. So I decided to start playing around with how to make Little P a Unicorn for a day. 

What more would any little girl want than to dress up in her pretty dress and ride a magical unicorn! It was a huge hit with moms of little and even big girls. I truly believe there is always a little bit of magic left in us as adults, sometimes we just have to dig deeper to find it. 

April 1st dawned cold and cloudy. Not my idea of a whimsical and magical unicorn shoot, but the lord blessed us with afternoon sun and a little bit warmer temps. This was a family affair and I would not have it any other way. My little family and I went early to begin getting our “unicorns” glammed up and ready for their debut. 

Dusty , the white speckled horse was my brother in laws mare and is such a loyal soul. She is such a beauty. Little P has been the grand kids pony for as long as I can remember and holds a very special place in most of our hearts. She is spoiled to kids and loves to be led around and messed with by anyone on her level. LOL 

 

We sweet daughter was my inspiration so heres a few of my faves from hers.

As soon as Cia was finished our first official friend came up the drive. Miss Lexi is the sweetest! She was a little nervous and a lot cold but she was a trooper! I love getting to see past clients and see how they grow and change! It makes my heart absolutely soar!

Probably one of the most magical sessions we had was with Elle! I noticed she was shaking as we walked up to the pony and I asked her if she was cold or excited? Her response was “ Both LOL” . She had been dreaming of meeting a Unicorn and I loved getting to share this with her. I about cried when she started talking to P and asking her for magical wishes to be granted. These are the experiences I love to give kids. I had a very vivid imagination growing up and so do my kids. What joy it is to allow them to be little and to dream!

Our next friend was Hadley who was a little bit nervous but was sooo precious and loving on little P. I adored her outfit and those little boots with the lace shoe strings ! AHH! So whimsical! I LOVED IT!

Oh my word, these next two are so adorable! They were such sweet models and did so great with both of the Unicorns. These two sisters are stinking precious together! What a fun memory they will share!

Siblings are something so special! These next two kiddies were hilarious and super funny. Big brother and little sister, what a bond! I loved how they were so sweet out in the field. I know this mamas heart was melting ! And those freckles!!! How cute!!

Last but not least was probably one of my favorite shoots ever: Mommy and Me with the Unicorns! 

 

My dear friend Alicia and her daughter drove down from Hopkinsville, Ky to have their turn with the Unicorns. Alicia had not been on a horse in almost 20 years when a car wreck hurt her back, but when your sweet girl asks you to ride a Unicorn with her what do you do but Ride! As a mom I know exactly the thoughts that were running through Alicia’s mommy brain. It was such a treat to be apart of such a spectacular evening with them! 

 

I can't seem to put into words the joy it brought me to play with these kiddos and their families! Sharing my love of equine along with my passion for photography was a dream come true. I pray I never lose sight of either love. I hope that each soul that came in contact with us and the Unicorns that day walked away with a wonderful memory to cherish forever. I know I did! 

Thanks for sticking with me on this extremely long post! LOL Hope you enjoyed these lovely people!
