A Cinderella Story

Almost everyone is familiar with the story of Cinderella. In the classic version the title character, after losing her father becomes a servant for both her stepmother and stepsisters. When the King invites all eligible maidens to go to the ball where his son will pick a bride Cinderella is forbidden to go. With the help from an unexpected fairy godmother nothing is impossible. Growing up I saw many different versions of this fairytale come to life and it’s a story I’ve come to love. I decided to create a modern version of what I think Cinderella would look like in this day and age while keeping elements from the original Disney version. This includes the blue dress she wore and black chocker around her neck. Pumpkins surround Cinderella because in the story her fairy godmother turns them into the chariot that takes her to and from the Prince’s ball. This photograph is meant to show the moment where she’s beginning to transform into a princess for the night. It’s the part of the story that teaches you to believe and it is important to remember that sometimes the good things come suddenly without warning.
