“Rapunzel” from “East of the Sun and West of the Moon”

“Rapunzel”

Here she is, the beautiful Brianna as Rapunzel. And although she doesn’t really have hair THAT long, it is STILL REALLY LONG, which is why I asked her to be my Rapunzel. At the time we did this shoot last year, her hair was indeed past her waist, and it really is that curly. Her mother announced to me before this shoot that she had even washed and combed Brianna’s hair just for me! I felt very honored at that! In order to achieve this image, I had to have a model with hair I could duplicate and work with in post-processing.  But I don’t love this girl just for her fabulous hair. She is beautiful, yes, but most importantly, she is smart, and kind, and full of awesome personality – all the things we should most value in our children.

Notice the little bird on her arm? In case you haven’t figured it out yet, I have a thing about birds.  They ended up being a recurring theme throughout many of the pictures, even though that was not my original intent.

My 12×12 book, “East of the Sun and West of the Moon”, which contains the entire exhibition including the beautiful accompanying story pages, is available for purchase online here in hardcover and softcover.

 If you would like to view the entire exhibit in person, you can visit  The Bank of Jackson on Oil Well Road, second floor, until May 31.
