Unicorn Photo Session in Utah

Picture a wild unicorn, running freely, leaving a trail of magical dust everywhere she steps. You’ve probably got a make believe environment in your mind, with waterfalls, trees, flowers and a sparkling stream. You actually don’t have to rely on your imagination because outdoor Utah resembles a fairy tale, and Utah is home to a very real unicorn named Marshmallow. Many happy girls have had their dreams come true through a photo session with Marshmallow the Utah unicorn.

I have been working with Marshmallow the unicorn for five years. She is calm, sweet natured, patient and an absolute dream to work with. But what really sets her apart is the help that she comes with. Utah Pony Party ensures that Marshmallow’s horn is shined, her hair is clean and wispy and her heart is open for another princess friend. They also provide an extra set of hands to make sure that children can sit safely on Marshmallow and snuggle her close during their photo session.

What really happens at a unicorn session?

When you book a unicorn session with Loni Smith Photography, I arrive at the session with dresses and floral crowns for your child. While your child gets dressed, I decorate Marshmallow’s mane with flowers and greenery to add that extra fairy tale touch.

A handler from Utah Pony Party attends to Marshmallow’s needs and helps your child get comfortable with meeting the unicorn.

I work to get a good mixture of natural, unposed photographs and posed photographs. I make sure that each child has moments to interact with Marshmallow and capture unique photos of their personality. I also direct the professionally posed photographs that always end up as my clients’ top choices for wall art.

Depending on your child’s comfort level, I capture kisses and hugs with the unicorn, your child sitting on the unicorn’s back, having “tea” with Marshmallow, reading a book with her and dancing in front of her.

You might have noticed that my finished photos have the straps edited out on Marshmallow’s horn, as well as the rope and my assistant. I do this for every single photo that you purchase from your unicorn session. To make your photos even more magical, I also add things like rainbows, butterflies and sparkles. It’s all a part of making dreams come true and capturing those dreams in photographic artwork for your home.
