This is a mother/daughter portrait of Alice cosplaying as myself during my childhood. It was shot in studio for the photography class I teach at The Creative Circus. Even though Alice is adopted people often comment on how we look alike. It always makes her feel really special so this portrait was a lot of fun for us. This image features all of my beloved toys I saved from my childhood. Alice even got to open a couple of forgotten She-ra toys that were still in the original packaging. You can also see the first camera my parents gave me.
