Photo studios here let parents and kids live out fairy tale fantasies

A photo studio here is letting children - and their parents - live out their fairy-tale dreams

After doing four conventional studio shoots of her twins, Ms Vanessa Ong, 27, stumbled upon something different - the elaborate fairy tale-themed shoots offered by Wonderland Art Studio.

The first photo shoot, which she did about six months ago, saw her 18-month-old twins dressed up as characters such as Alice and the Mad Hatter from Alice In Wonderland and multiple characters from the Wizard Of Oz, achieved through the wonders of Adobe Photoshop.

The props and costumes are made by Ms Vivien Ng, the studio's creative director. She also conceptualises and styles the shoots and edits the photos, which includes adding detailed backdrops, adapted from illustrations sourced from books and online.

"The rule is I try to do it all myself. At least 90 per cent," says the 39-year-old, who was previously a stylist for magazines.
