meet the.....designer and magic maker
Oh what to say about miss Tiffany Pratt!!! There are so many words to describe her (and her work) such as bright, colourful, fun, whimsical, magical, joyful, well I could go on and on! This is all apparent from her website, and from the work she does, but when I had a chance to meet her in person and see her work space, I was really blown away by how generous and grateful she is! There is a feeling, an atmosphere in her place that left me feeling like I was being cradled in the biggest, warmest hug, where everything was possible, and where it was safe to be free and yourself. After spending just a smidgen of time with her, I almost felt like I had come back from a retreat, an escape.
Needless to say, if you are looking to make your day truly memorable, to bring a special kind of magic, to have your guests talking about every little detail of your day for months, please get in touch with Tiffany! She is always working on some fun project, and I'm continually blown away by her creativity and originality.
Tiffany, THANK YOU so much for sharing your afternoon with me, and for allowing me a glimpse into your magical world!! I really do hope I get to photograph one of your weddings one of these days, It would be an honour and a dream come true (yeah, can you tell I'm a little smitten)!
Please enjoy this little glimpse into Tiffany's land of magic, and make sure to read her answers to my little questionnaire below the photos .
How did you get started?
I was born and then I wanted to make stuff and create things and paint on them and cut things and, and, and - now I am just doing that same thing....on an adult level. I never stopped wanting, involving, researching, imagining, and submerging myself into a life creative - filled with textures, expression, truths and colour. I never imagined my life at a desk. I only ever saw myself having, doing and creating my life and the lives of others. I remember hearing someone in high school preaching about "DO WHAT YOU LOVE AND YOU WILL NEVER WORK A DAY IN YOUR LIFE", that stuck with me. I measure what I do with how much I love waking up to do it. I JUMP OUT OF BED EVERYDAY.
