    About

    Romantic Faeries:
    My Romantic Faeries set of images is inspired by my love of classical romantic paintings. I always look to the angels in the clouds above the adoring couple and wanted to give them a closer look. The faeries' names are inspired by their color palate and describe different types of love. They float effortlessly in their environment and evoke feelings of confidence, calm serenity, and old-world romance in a simpler, less complicated life.
    Their wings are strong, having a metallic look but are light and ethereal at the same time. Clothing is intricate, flowy and minimal without being overtly sexy – they are simply beautiful and completely relaxed, strong and comfortable. We shot these photographs on a stunningly beautiful and relaxing day in the very warm, very clear water of my underwater studio. As we were shooting it was obvious that collectively we were making magical art and we were so genuinely content. Being genuinely content is blissful and highly underrated.
    The models in these images are two of my favorite people whom I value and admire to no end. They are as lovely inside as they are on the outside. They are respected working artists at one of the most recognizable gaming software companies. They make a lot of their dresses and costumes themselves and spend a lot of time modeling. AND they are brilliant, talented, working artists, physically and mentally strong and just the type of women I want to have in my life.

    Sizing details

    Images are currently available at 4x6 postcards, 5x7 folded cards, 8x10 Baryta fine art prints, and 16x20 Platine and Edition Etching fine art prints.

    Care instructions

    Flat items 8x10 or smaller are shipped in hard Cardboard mailers. Prints 16x20 and larger are rolled and shipped in thick cardboard shipping tubes. Do not touch fine art prints with your bare hands. Prints have a border for easy handling.

    Explanation of fine art paper types

    All 8x10 or larger fine art prints are printed on my new Canon imagePROGRAF PRO-4000 on Canson Infinity fine art museum quality papers using custom color profiles made specifically for my printer.
    All fine art prints are suitable for framing.
    8x10s are printed on Canson Infinity Baryta paper. Baryta is a coated paper with a sheen. It handles details and color beautifully.
    Larger prints will have the option of Canson Infinity Platine or Edition Etching papers:
    - Platine is 100% cotton fibre rag. It has slight sheen to it and shows details and colors best.
    - Edition Etching is a slightly textured matte fine art paper that has a
    luxurious watercolor-esque quality to the paper.

    5x7 Folded card materials

    The 5x7 folded cards are printed on a coated pearlized paper so the colors are more intense and they shimmer beautifully in the light. The back and inside of the 5x7 cards have a faded version of the cover image that is ghosted across it so that you can write inside the card, but it’s more beautiful than a plain white card. The 5x7 folded cards come with handsome parchment envelopes. You can give the 5x7 cards as gifts, writing a sweet note inside, frame and display them, or both.

    4x6 postcards

    The 4x6 postcards, from my Kickstarter campaigns, are heavyweight and glossy. The image name is printed on the back.

    Watermark

    Images are never printed with my watermark on them.
