What is Life of Whimsy?

CHILDHOOD IMAGINATION CAPTURED

Your life changed the moment they entered your world.

All at once you were overcome with a love so overwhelmingly beautiful it was almost unbearable in its intensity.

Your JOY at their arrival was accompanied by a FEAR of missing a single moment from then on. 

If only you could capture that feeling, bottle it up and treasure it forever.

You Can!


Life of Whimsy freezes these fleeting snapshots in time where the magical worlds of fantasy and innocence rein.

Don't look back with regret that you didn't immortalise their mystical worlds while you had the chance.

Life is a gift - don't let time rob you of it. 

Life of Whimsy captures childhood imagination before it's too late, visualising moments in a celebration of who they are so, as time ticks by,
you will always be able to look back in wonder at how innocent and vulnerable they once were. 

In an ever-changing world, we all need to remember what it was like to be young and free

Choose Life of Whimsy and freeze those precious memories forever.

The Idea

How it works

HOW DOES IT WORK?

1. Choose your custom print from the options available or request a bespoke design.

2. You take the subject images (clients will receive a guide as to HOW to take the picture; lighting, angles, size, expression, focus, orientation etc once the order has been received.) 

3. I insert your images into my designs - (edit blog coming soon)

Personalisations are added to your design (a favourite book or teddy bear, for example).

Some templates are limited to 10 of each design. Commision yours before it's too late. 

Bespoke custom designs are available on application. 

Suitable for children, adults, pets and teddy bears.

Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently Asked Questions

How long will it take for my portrait to arrive? 

I am currently working on a 2-week turnround time-frame. 

So I have to take the photos? But I'm rubbish at taking good ones!

Don't worry! Once you've ordered, you will receive a full guide on how to take the subject photos, including focus, lighting, angles, expressions, orientation etc. 

Who can I insert into the template?

Simply, there are no rules (with exceptions on certain images) as to who can feature in your imagination portrait. Children, adults, pets or even teddys can be added to your selected template, as long as it makes sense to you! (Teddys or pets are counted as 1 subject).

It's not cheap!

The short answer is no, it is not.

BUT this is reflected in the quality and unique nature of the designs. When I create these original images, they take up to 8 hours - sometimes even longer. Even with the templates, adding in your subjects to make them appear natural and perfectly edited can take 2-3 hours. I make sure the exposure and toning match, add the shadow and highlights and add personalisations to make the image unique and meaningful to you and as perfect as a real photo.

But I hope you will agree that the end product is worth it - your own piece of whimsy, featuring those closest to you.

I am committed to ensuring the quality and details in your personalised template. It's very important to me that you love your unique whimsy keepsake and by telling a meaningful story through each portrait, I know you will. 

“No dream is too big and no dreamer is too small.”

I love it!

About Me

Hello

Hi, I’m Sally. Good to meet you

Hi I'm Sally and I'm the photographer from The Photography Boutique and the digital artist behind Life of Whimsy.

I truly believe I have the BEST job in the world! 

I love, love, LOVE creating imaginative artwork, featuring children and their families. I truly believe that imagination on one of life's greatest pleasures and in a world where growing up is unavoidable, it should be captured forever whilst still in its most innocent format
- the ability to dream fades all too quickly.

It's a true privilege to be able to capture those moments in time that would otherwise be forgotten. From the realms of your imagination, to pride of place on your walls, memories are treasures to frame, look at each day and remember. 

I would LOVE to hear from you, to find out what memories are magical to you and to help you embark on your own whimsy journey!
