It’s the last day of Artmas 2021, a bittersweet day. I’m sad to see it go but excited to introduce the final artist. I had to reorder & post the Christmas ads yesterday because the Christmas Eve spotlight is on the . . . ZEPHYRE ROSE PHOTOGRAPHY CHRISTMAS CHARACTERS ADVENT SERIES! I know that’s a mouthful, but get excited because the creativity will enchant you. A family holiday project? What’s not to love! We have 24 days of ground to cover so “Now, Dasher! Now, Dancer! Now, Prancer & Vixen! On, Comet! On Cupid! On, Donner & Blitzen!” 🦌

📆 DECEMBER 1ST – MISS CHRISTMAS 🎄

“It’s Advent! Going to kick off this Advent with a completely wild photography project that I am creating with all the family. It was going to be a self portraiture project but they all said why should I have all the fun? Life is too short to be boring and miserable, and I’ve been all sorts of that lately, which I know is ok . . . but now I want to get silly, get creative and put my styling/acting skills to good use! Also I love Christmas. So for the next 24 days I hope you will follow along as I reveal My Christmas Characters! Say hello to Miss Christmas!” – Taken From Instagram

“Doesn’t she make the cutest little reindeer?! I had all of about 5 minutes to get this shot, 1 minute extra with a bit of chocolate 🤣 so excited to reveal all these original characters we have created as a family, we have brainstormed names together, sketched out ideas and crafted bits for each one! Who will be next? 🎄✨” – Taken From Instagram

📆 DECEMBER 5TH – MOTHER ROBIN 🐣

[TRIGGER WARNING FOR CHILD LOSS] I couldn’t do this family project without including my baby Robin somehow. For those that don’t know, I had a silent miscarriage back in September and it’s taken a good few months to even feel ok again and I feel the presence of my baby strongly even though they are not here. We named the baby Robin, and as I predicted I see Robin’s everywhere I go . . . mainly in our favourite woods and a little one that comes to our garden most days too.” – Taken From Instagram

“Ok this isn’t actually a new character for me, you’ll be interested to know that this is a character I created with my best friend Sophie when we started a theatre company 6 years ago. Penny and Polly are sister elves who visits families in their homes, sing songs, play games and spread a little bit of Christmas magic. One of the best times of my life and I sure do miss it! Who knows, I may bring her back to tour in Scotland one Christmas, but for now here she is and I’ll show you a little treat of us in action in my stories 😉✨🎄” – Taken From Instagram
