My husband and I recently took our daughter to Enchanted Fairies in Dallas for a photo shoot dressed as her very most favorite thing – a Fairy! She has been obsessed with fairies for a while now, and is especially in love with Tinker Bell.
You guys may remember the Fairy Jar Craft we made recently because she was so in love with everything Fairy! So, we surprised her with the trip to Enchanted Fairies as a treat, and she loved every minute! If you live in the Dallas Fort Worth area, or are planning a visit – this is a great unique experience.
We LOVE them! But the whole experience was really just as fun as seeing the finished project. Here is how the process worked for us:
-As soon as we found the store front at Enchanted Fairies we knew we were in for a treat. 3D clouds hang suspended in the lobby where we were asked to fill out a little paperwork and chose some outfits for my daughter to try on in her dressing room. The mood is kept magical the whole time and the lighting is greens and blues and twinkle lights. After we checked back in, we were immediately taken to a dressing room.
– The dressing room was already filled with the 5 or 6 gowns and tutus that my daughter had chosen to try on, and the assistant was very helpful and explained she could take her time trying things on until she found just the fairy outfit for her. Her dad and I loved everything she put on, and she surprised us by picking a beautiful royal blue tutu and top. We were sure she’d go pink!
-After she was dressed, the assistant came back and laid out lots of flowers and crowns for her to choose from. She pulled my daughters hair up, and let her pick some lip gloss and sparkles for her face. She really put my daughter at ease, and let my husband and I just enjoy the ride. She handled everything!
-Next, my daughter was taken to the photo studio where she met the photographer. He was super engaging and continued to treat her as if she was a real fairy! He gave her various objects to hold and make wishes on – and she seriously did! We could hear her wishing for birds to come to her and cupcakes between shots! The photographer also took great care wiping everything she touched off with antibacterial wipes, and arranged the set in different ways quickly so she didn’t lose energy or focus too soon. I was really impressed with how quickly he got a ton of shots, all while letting her feel she was getting to play make believe.
-We made an appointment to look at our photos on the same day, but generally that is done on another day as they need to have someone scheduled to show you the proofs. We were taken to another room and we got to see all her photos. We wanted all of them! But we chose 2 poses and received them in the mail about 6 weeks later. It was then that we got to see the magic effects that were added around our daughter.
– All in all it was a wonderful experience. My daughter asked us when we got the final photos back, how come she didn’t see “all the fireflies flying around her at the studio?!” She was enthralled by all the magic effects they added to her photos, and most of all by the care and patience everyone showed us during the experience.
I highly recommend Enchanted Fairies for families that have a fairy/mermaid/warrior fans in their house!
