A couple of years ago, I created this little story after a shoot in autumn woods with my daughter. I wanted to transfer it to this blog awhile ago, but time ran away with me and soon the memory followed. For those wanting an example of a custom made fairy tale, here you go!
Once upon a time, in a land not far from your window's view, a little girl went for a walk on an Autumn day.
The leaf strewn path led her deeper and deeper into the enchanted wood. She followed along until her strength began to weaken. She wished the fae to lead her to a spot where she could rest her head.
Against the trunk of a very wise tree, the girl fell into a peaceful slumber...
and awoke, a Princess.
Welcomed greatly by the spirits and tiny creatures, she began her reign.
Wise and just, she ruled the Autumn wood with an incomparable grace.
But heavy is the head that wears the crown. Soon the little Princess longed to return to her home and family.
Quite suddenly, she woke. Her body still against the tree from which she had first slumbered.
But she could not forget her kingdom, and so before heading home after her very long journey the once Princess explored that which was hers to guard.
For if she should ever wish to return,
she only had to seek ...
of her kingdom in the Autumn Wood.
