There is so much beauty in this picture.

It perfectly shows the main character of a novel I'm writing as I had her in my head.
Chapeau, and thank you so much for this photography!

Any chance that there are more pictures starring your sister in a comparable style?

Thank you!
I wish, but we live in different countries and meet only once a year
I have a more "forest witchy" styled shoot with her modeling though

Sounds good! You have it here on DA?

BTW I'd be interested in how you interpret your picture.
What I see is not so much of a witch (well, okay, she obviously has an enchanted mirror), but I perceive it more like a woman looking for something - a lost love maybe. That perfectly catches the atmosphere of the character I'm writing about. A pretty sad story in the end, and this picture, its graceful melancholy, just hits it right away.

May you possibly share it with the community here? You'd be my personal heroine: ;)

Okay, you have a point there. Maybe I didn't use the right words. What I meant is that I'd like to know whether there was a certain concept or idea behind this picture that's not so obvious. But maybe it's better not to know so one can perceive it in one's own way as a viewer.

You can see it here if you like: vk.com/wall-23928938_720

I don't really think when I imagine the styling or during a shoot. I just try to put the sensation I have about it into a picture
I called this one Witch because it has some kind of a mystical atmosphere and I have troubles with titles so prefer just one word :D

Uh, really nice pictures. Thank you once again, you both did a very good job.

I'm sorry, I think it's my writing focus that makes me expect there must be a story behind everything, I guess.
The title is good, though. I found it via gooling "Witch" :D

Hi, would it be all right if I used this picture in a book aesthetic (a collection of pictures showing the basic idea/plot of a book) for my tumblr? I would definitely source you and link back to this webpage, I wouldn't make any money off of it, and this is a gorgeous picture. I'm doing it for this book called The Enchantress Returns, which is about (among other things) Sleeping Beauty and the evil fairy/enchantress that cursed her.

Do you think you could take another photo of this same character, but only from the front? I'm using her as a reference for a drawing and it's very difficult to see the front of her, lol that would be much appreciated!
