Close your eyes and picture princesses, princes, fairies, enchanted forests, wands and butterflies.
For a child, the magic can be real with Chantal Benoit's new portrait service called Enchanted Fairy Portraiture.
Benoit has been photographing weddings, couples, babies and children in Orléans since 1997. Her home studio allows her to personalize each photo for her customers.
She says her newest endeavour, Enchanted Fairy Portraiture, is "extremely popular" in the States and in Toronto.
She has outfitted her studio with a magical backdrop, lush grass, toadstools and trees to make children look like they are really in an enchanted garden. She has princess dresses in all sizes and colours, fairy wings, and even a Peter Pan outfit for boys.
"I've only just started but my few clients have said they were really impressed," says Benoit. "It's a really different experience and the children just love it."
She says the photos can be a unique gift for grandparents or a fun decoration for a kid's room. "Who doesn't want to be a princess for a day?"
