Morgan le Fay

Firstly I'd like to thank the extremely talented woman behind Circle of Wolves Jewelry for creating the beautiful custom-made crystal crown and necklace for this shoot! Also a huge thanks to Allkindz for lending me this wonderful dress. And of course, my amazing model and muse, Morgan! 

I had the idea for this shoot before I'd even met Morgan, but when I did I knew that she'd be perfect. I was inspired by a character from one of my favourite childhood stories, Morgana le Fay, from The Legends of King Arthur. Especially the movie "Merlin" where Morgana is played by Helena Bonham Carter, and also "The Mists of Avalon." This is my second time working with Morgan and it was a pleasure yet again. She's got a bright future ahead of her.

I've been experimenting with new techniques and pushing myself to take risks alot more. It's all in the little things, like not talking myself down when I have an idea. Even when I was doing Morgan's makeup, I kept questioning wether I should make it darker or add more details. But in the end I just did it and I'm so happy with the result.

This project was so much fun, I'll post more pictures soon on my facebook page Maniana's Creations.
