my lovely pixie

I rather fell in love with some of the photos that the my friend Hannah posted a few days ago, and decided that I needed to do a similar shoot with a certain little sister of mine.

So, today Megan sweetly agreed to become a pixie and pose for me.
A few things I learned from the experience?

1.  I'm not (not, not, not, not, not) meant to be a make-up artist.  It must have taken me about an hour to get her eyes the way they are.  And the way they are is far from amazing.

 2.  Next time I do this, I probably shouldn't put her make-up outside.  The result?  Shortly into the session I have a hot, sweaty, and rather cranky gal on my hands.  *Sigh...*
and 3.  Megan is quite the little pixie.  I am absolutely loving some of these...

which is your favourite?


  1. I think the second one is my favorite - but they're all really really good!

  2. I love the last one!! Your camera captures eyes so well. *sighs longfully* What kind/model do you have???

    In Christ,

  3. Love the last one, Hannah dear! So glad that you were inspired by my photos! :-)

  4. Emily,

    I have a Canon Rebel T2i. I also use the "eye brighten" Picnik Premium effect, which works like magic;)

    Thank you for the sweet comments, lovelies!


  5. I love the last one! Lovely photos, dear! :)

  6. The last photo is stunning. Love it, love it, love! :)

  7. My favs are the first and last ones :)

  8. This is so cool! I love, love, love the last one - her eyes are BEAUTIFUL!

    K xx


  9. I love them! Especially the third one. She looks like a real pixie...the mischievous, Tinkerbell kinda pixie :) I wish I had a little sister to take pictures of. Hehe :)



Thank you so much for taking the time to leave me a note - each and every one brightens up my day. I do my best to get back to commenters and return the favor, too.
