I’m not sure why this style of digital composite is all over the internet. I do love it. It’s fun, surreal and a little dreamy.

After we shot our Christmas card shot this year, the girls were game (for about 30 seconds) to shoot some test stuff for me. “You gonna make me float?” was my youngest’s question. “Sure,” I said. FUN. Especially when I have a willing subject.

There are some really incredible photographic artists out there doing their levitation thing. Brooke Shaden is my favorite for sure:


Anka Zhuravleva is another skilled levitation creator…her subjects look like they’re still in motion verses stuck in space.



You have to look closely, but this one below is one of my favorite levitation pictures ever…and for the life of me, I can’t find it in my stash in images. Driving me crazy! I saw it in an issue of Coastal Living in an article called “Above the Sand”. The image was hanging in the living room and took my breath away. It’s so, so tiny here, but you get the idea. Brilliant!












If you’re interested in doing this yourself with your own DSLR, this is the perfect tutorial. It’s pretty much how I do mine.

I hope spring is busting out all over for you wherever you are, Lovelies! We had an amazing day here today—upper 50’s and bright, brilliant sunshine (my favorite kind). This quote described this day perfectly.









Love to you this weekend~

    Honestly, I like your levitation composite above all the others you shared…maybe because it is your family, maybe because it is whimsical, maybe because it’s from you! And the quote? BRAVO!
    Blessings to you and yours!
    PS….I’m shooting in RAW! YAY!!

    Incredible photography! Love your blog. I have been lurking for years and enjoying all that you write and photograph. Inspiration for sure.
    I can feel spring around the corner here in London.
    I love it “when it is summer in the light and winter in the shade.”
