Fairy Portrait Tips

Make sure you have visited my page THE PORTRAIT PROCESS to see the proper angle, lighting, crop, and clarity I require of photo submissions as these guidelines apply to all themes. 

This tutorial will just go over poses, outfits, etc. that work well for fairy portraits. 

 

The outfit can make all the difference! 

If you’re getting a fairy portrait, of course, you want to look as much like a fairy as possible! Wear the most whimsical outfit you have! If you have a beautiful fairylike costume that would work great. You don’t have to wear a costume though. Most of the time a simple dress or cute outfit will do! 

 

Poses and effects 

Front facing poses work nicely so I can easily hide the wings behind your back, giving them a very natural look. You or your children can also pose based on what kind of fairy photo effects you would like. For example, if you wanted to be holding a butterfly or a wisp of light you can take a picture with your hand out and cupped.
