Do you believe in Faeries?

Faeries were believed to be mythical spirits which populate all places and objects on Earth. The nature fairies are mermaids, water-spirits, tree-spirits; they are often described as human in appearance and having magical powers.


by Cicely M. Barker

Where are the fairies? Where can we find them?

We’ve seen the fairy-rings they leave behind them!

When they have danced all night, Where do they go?

Lark, in the sky above, Say, do you know?

Is it a secret no one is telling?

Why, in your garden Surely they’re dwelling!

No need for journeying, Seeking afar:

Where there are flowers, the fairies are!

Why faeries you may ask – Why not?

Faerie Portrait Session: £60 + 9×6 print

Many of our younger clients come in to the studio wearing Fairy Princess costumes and Tinkerbell outfits so we have decided to offer something a little different from traditional and contemporary portraits. Our Faerie and Fantasy portraits are embellished prints portraying “Faeries at the bottom of the garden” scenarios. Although we have only been offering this type of portraiture for a few months but it is proving to be very popular.

Please note that we only have a limited number of costumes so please ask when booking your session so we can ensure we have an outfit to fit your child although we are very happy for you to bring your own to make it more personal.



All session fees are due at the time of booking and includes:

  • Up to 1 hour in our Swindon studio
  • Editing of around 25-30 final images from the session
  • A private on-line gallery to preview your images

Our Faerie and Fantasy images are treated exactly the same as our standard Studio sessions. At the viewing an image is chosen by the parents for us to sprinkle on magic faerie dust. All other images taken during the session can be purchased, at our normal print prices, or can also have additional faerie dust sprinkled – due to the nature of these images and the work involved only the image selected by the parents will have fairy magic applied to them.


We have a number of wall art packages and digital file packages available to purchase.

We also have a range of keepsake albums, frames and canvases; a full price list will be given to you at the photo session.

Few folk have seen a Fairy, but I found this one for you.

If you believe with all your might, she’ll make your dreams come true.
