There is a spot in the woods behind my house where, when the sun comes up in the morning, the light shines through and creates this magical spot of warmth. The first time I noticed it was the summer of 2012 and I knew I HAD to bottle up all that magic and gorgeous light in a photograph somehow. So I took my little fairy princess out and did my best at capturing the morning light. This month’s blog circle theme is to take a photo from our archives and make it new again. Yesterday morning I woke up and was watching the light spring through the trees and light up little spots of dried up flowers in morning warmth and, again, found myself sucked into the magic of it all and realized I knew exactly which photo I needed to re-create.I took my sweet little fairy out this morning and shot in that same spot, with the same light. Only this time I have a years worth of studying and practice under my belt…along with a more appropriate choice in costume.
I adore this little sunshine fairy and love the magic morning light that dances through my backyard during the summer months.
And here is the photo I took in July of 2012 (along with the edit) that inspired the series of photos for this post.
This post and set of photos are part of a monthly blog circle called Cross Country Clicks. We are a group of friends sharing and celebrating our photographic journeys. This month we chose a photo from our archives to re-create. Click HERE to see my friend Emily’s “then and now” post and photo!
