This is Alice Lewis, 10-year-old aspiring model and actress. At the age of 7, Alice was lucky enough to meet her forever family (and they were lucky enough to meet her!). Her mom, photographer Kelly Lewis, encouraged her to choose her own name. She chose Alice after her favorite character in Lewis Carroll’s “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland.” This seems like an especially apt choice.
Alice and her mother seem like a match made in heaven. They come up with beautifully creative costumes and poses, and their resulting photographs are really stunning. But as great as these costumes and pictures are, Kelly’s story about how they all came together is almost better. Give it a read at your leisure. It’s adorable, but not sickly sweet.
“They wondered what they could do to fill the void of the endless hours of doing whatever they wanted. And then it came to them. A kid! It would be the perfect addition to their home. They could spend their endless hours feeding it, loving it and making it less sticky!” – Excerpt from “Alice Lewis and the Fairly Odd Parents“
I hope you enjoy these wonderful photographs and the fascinating duo who made them.
