Two weeks ago I had a very special photoshoot, to celebrate a very special young lady’s birthday.

Beautiful Islay is turning five and can you believe it? She is a real life fairy! And her pony Fleur is a unicorn! For real!

Fleur the unicorn is four and came from the Welsh Sales. (Now you all know where you can get your very own unicorn! 😋) She has only been handled since February, but is an absolute poppet and is taking her new role as fairy pony in her stride. Just look how patient and laid back she is! What an angel.

Islay and her mum have been backing Fleur slowly, over the past eight months and she is turning into a very sweet little first pony.

Islay and Fleur did their very first local shows, this year, too, where they came 2nd and 3rd. So they’re off to a really great start and doing amazingly, considering how young and inexperienced they both are.

Islay’s mum hopes that this adorable pair will continue to grow and learn together and enjoy lots of fun, in the future.

And I’ll just end this write up by saying that I think this shoot definitely ranks up there my favourite ever! I can definitely tick ‘meet a unicorn’ off my bucket list!

Thank you so much to Islay’s mum, Nikki, for the most magical shoot. And a big happy birthday to my favourite fairy!
