Dreamin in Pink
Updated: Jan 5
Magic Kingdom is considered to be the most magical place on earth. It can also be the most crowded place on earth. For that reason, taking pictures at Magic Kingdom can be both a magical and complicated experience. Here is my take on creating a magical look for the most magical place on earth.

The Edited Cut:
The Outfit: I am a huge sucker for shopping local. In fact my obsession with local shops is so huge that I decided to organize a pop up shop called Broadway Stop to promote both local small shops and artists together in one place. A lot of the clothing that was sent over to me, I wanted to make sure that people were going to get both ideas on how to style the piece and a want to buy the actual piece. When I think of magic, I think of pink. That might just be me and my love for the color pink, but I love love all things pink. Shop 112, sent me this amazing vibrant pink skirt. I loved it, however, I was not a huge fan of the skirt being completely buttoned down since in general it was rather flat and heavy. To solve this problem, I only buttoned three of the buttons and let the rest flow. Next, the top was sent over from In Style Wear. Polka dots is one of my favorite patters, this shirt is perfect for the parks. It has ruffles, dots, and the right material to be comfortable while walking in the heat. The tiara I am wearing creates a princess - fairytale look.
The Scenery and Poses:
This was one of my favorite shoots in general. I know that at Magic Kingdom there is so much opportunity to play around with the colors, especially when it is pink. My first target was the carousel. It was not my favorite since the light was not ideal and the crowds seemed to be the worst there. I then went to what I like to call my hidden corner. Nothing is really complete without a picture of a castle. Going to this side view is the perfect place to avoid crowds and have a good picture of the castle. I went ahead and played around with my steps to add some type of flow to the skirt. The last location was the Carousel of Progress. This wall rotating location can be hard to capture the magic, but after waiting for some time, I was able to get a nice contrast with the colors.
This shoot required the typical fixing of the small details without going too over board. I fixed the lights, the vibrance, and the colors to make sure that they balance each other out.
This project was made possible in collaboration with Jorge Martinez who was the photographer for this shoot. He always has the patience and the time to work with me as I get my pose, outfits, and makeup together.
