Didn’t really like the way these ones turned out compared to the first

So this was one of the photos from my first shoot for the Big Project. I’m doing fairytale themed portraits. Here’s Cinderella…I’ve got some more shots and they will be up sometime soon. I’d love feedback and ideas. Right now I’m planning on a Snow White shoot, Hansel and Gretel, Sleeping Beauty, Little Red Riding Hood, maybe The Princess and the Pea, Jack and the Beanstalk. Let me know if there’s any ideas for other ones :)

I have a new fairy tale book coming out next year! Based on the photoset, you can probably guess what it’s about. Here’s the announcement:

Sarah Cross’s TEAR YOU APART, pitched as a modern Snow White reimagining, in which a teen with a murderous stepmother is trapped in a dangerous game of love, jealousy, and hate with her best friend and lover, who is destined to decide if she lives or dies … until a mysterious prince from a strange Underworld offers her an escape, to Alison Weiss at Egmont, for publication in January 2015

So it’s basically Snow White with an on-again-off-again Huntsman boyfriend, then add in the Twelve Dancing Princesses, an underworld nightclub, some poison apples, and stir.

Tear You Apart takes place in the same world as Kill Me Softly and “After the Ball,” in a city where people are cursed to live out fairy tales. I’ll share more details as soon as I can!
