“She warned him not to be deceived by appearances, for beauty is found within.” – Beauty and the Beast

A tale as old as time, true as it can be; this Beauty and The Beast Themed Session from Crytal Clear Images will have you humming your favorite Beauty and the Beast tunes before you get to the end!  Try the grey stuff it’s delicious, don’t believe me, ask the dishes!

What We Love:
Crystal: The vision for this Belle inspired session was to express the emotions of isolation and loneliness that we sometimes find ourselves in as we transition from an adolescent into an adult. Although, it might seem sad, it’s a part of life that many can relate to. There is a scene in the story of Beauty and the Beast where Belle is extremely lonely and isolated prior to when the castle transforms and becomes alive. With social media, cyber bullying is more prominent than ever and tweens and teens are entangled in all the messiness of it right at the moments in life when they are truly trying to find themselves. For a castle look in the background, I found a beautiful church located in the heart of downtown Colorado Springs, Colorado called Grace and St. Stephens Episcopal. I used my nifty fifty for the entire session on my trusty Canon 5D Mark IV. The model is my beautiful 13 year old step-daughter, she was my favorite part of the entire experience!

Lisa and Rachel:  Who doesn’t love Beauty and the Beast, a tale of learning not to judge someone based on their looks is a lesson for all.  This themed session brings Belle to life with it’s beauty both inside and out.  The gorgeous old church makes for the perfect back drop and A Love Tale perfectly styled the session so much that you half expect the tea cup to start singing. But most of all we love the message Crystal is accomplishing with this session.
