A Little Mermaid


I think I just love everything ethereal & magical.  The idea for this mermaid collection had been in the back of my mind for months before I met Dakotah, & I'm sure you will agree, she proved to be absolutely perfect for the part.  For me, there are few things in life as fun as bringing a concept to life... & that's really all this photoshoot was about.  I owe a huge thank you to Dakotah for her modeling, & my friend Amanda for helping me plan this costume & then creating the beautiful piece you see in the images.  

The weather was unbelievably perfect: windy, dark, & stormy.  We also had the added bonus of a great location with a lighthouse shining nearby.  The story in my head went something like this: she comes from Atlantis, transforms to human by day to explore the shore, & returns to her underwater city as a mermaid by nightfall.

Costume: Amanda Pilling | Model: Dakotah Schmidt | Makeup: Me :]
