"Anybody with artistic ambitions is always trying to reconnect with the way they saw things as a child." ~ Tim Burton ๐ŸŽจ | | My path leading up to professional portrait photography was a very long and winding one, with many unusual and unexpected twists and turns along the way. Even now, my journey as an Artist is filled with uncertainty and struggle, which sometimes makes me wonder what choices I might have made differently if I had taken some other paths as a child... So I'd like to ask you, what did YOU want to be as a child, and in what ways (if any) did that dream evolve or change as you got older? | | MODEL: @megan_nicole_nj | #littleredridinghood MUA: @mcrosemakeup WOLF: @wolfpack_jw "Goliath" PHOTO/ART: @shannonadelson ๐Ÿ“ท๐ŸŽจ ยฉ 2018 LOCATION: #enchantedforest | | | #emergingartists | #supportthearts | #creativeartist | #creativeportrait | #creativecontentbuilders | #photoartwork | #artphotographer | #photoartists | #photoartistry | #creativeediting | #artisticportraits | #deadlycaptures | #fantasyphotography | #fairytalephotography | #fantasymakers | #fairytalephotoshoot | #shannonadelson | #AdelsonMedia | at Haddon Township, New Jersey

"Better to illuminate than merely to shine, to deliver to others contemplated truths than merely to contemplate." ~ Thomas Aquinas ๐ŸŽจ | | Do YOU have someone in your life who sometimes acts as a beacon and shines a light which helps you find your way?

"To be great, art has to point somewhere." ~ Anne Lamott ๐ŸŽจ | | I believe that Art should make us feel something in the process of telling us the story... But just like with Art, not every fairy tale is told in the same way. What is YOUR favorite fairy tale, and WHY does it resonate with you? | | MODEL: @megan_nicole_nj MUA: @mcrosemakeup WOLF: "Tauriel" (Tanglewood Wolfdogs) PHOTO/ART: @shannonadelson ๐Ÿ“ท๐ŸŽจ ยฉ 2018 | | | #emergingartists | #supportthearts | #creativeartist | #creativeportrait | #creativecontentbuilders | #photoartwork | #artphotographer | #photoartists | #photoartistry | #creativeediting | #artisticportraits | #deadlycaptures | #fantasyphotography | #fairytalephotography | #fantasymakers | #fairytalephotoshoot | #shannonadelson | #AdelsonMedia | at Haddon Township, New Jersey

"If one is lucky, a solitary fantasy can totally transform one million realities." ~ Maya Angelou ๐ŸŽจ | | Well, I don't know if there is any scientific evidence behind this theory, but I'd like to think that if even one person is moved by something they saw or heard or felt, then maybe there's more to that story than we are consciously aware of... What do YOU think? Is it possible for the mere perception of fantasy to alter your perspective on reality? | | MODEL: @misaneu WARDROBE: @holy__clothing | #HolyClothing HEADPIECE: #colleentoland PHOTO/ART: @shannonadelson ๐Ÿ“ท๐ŸŽจ ยฉ 2018 EVENT HOST: #strangevisionsproductions | | | | #emergingartists | #supportthearts | #creativeartist | #creativeportrait | #creativecontentbuilders | #photoartwork | #artphotographer | #photoartists | #photoartistry | #creativeediting | #artisticportraits | #deadlycaptures | #fantasyphotography | #fairytalephotography | #fantasymakers | #fairytalephotoshoot | #shannonadelson | #AdelsonMedia | at Lancaster, Pennsylvania

"There are two kinds of light: the glow that illuminates, and the glare that obscures." ~ James Thurber ๐ŸŽจ | | Although I've definitely experienced both kinds, I'd like to think that I seek out the light that is there to show us a new path...

"Twilight - a time of pause when nature changes her guard.

"If you ever find that youโ€™re the most talented person in the room, you need to find another room." ~ Austin Kleon ๐ŸŽจ | | In my experience, I have found that the best way to keep my creativity flowing is to surround myself with people who are even more talented than I, so I am constantly encouraged to level up and improve my skills.

"Worry never robs tomorrow of its sorrow, it only saps today of its joy." ~ Leo Buscaglia ๐ŸŽจ | | There are many things in life that are outside the realm of our power to change, so there's really little point in constantly worrying about them.

"If only Iโ€™d known my differentness would be an asset, then my earlier life would have been much easier." ~ Bette Midler ๐ŸŽจ | | Unfortunately, wisdom isn't usually something we acquire overnight, it often takes many years of sacrifice, trial and error, and a little bit of luck, to get to the point where we can maximize our efficiencies...

"It takes a long time to become young." ~ Pablo Picasso ๐ŸŽจ | | There is something so incredibly precious about the innocence of childhood...
