Book Now: Princess and the Pea a Photographic and Video Event in Children’s Photography



Treasure your child’s magical moments on a whole new level in an enchanting, original one-of-a-kind photo and video event that is booking now in the Akron, Ohio area of Portage Lakes!

Millie Mae Lane Photography is pleased to announce The Princess and the Pea, a photographic and video event in children’s photography on June 20th in Portage Lakes. In collaboration with Thespis per Lacus Media, this event is ushering in a new way of capturing special moments by preserving the gestures, laughs, and voices of little ones in a high quality, professionally edited short film, along with the traditional still photographs. The process they are developing is called motion portraiture.

Move over standard portrait photography, professional motion portraiture is the next big thing.


Fine art children’s photographer, Paige Lyon of Millie Mae Lane says, “Think the Disney Princess experience, but so much closer to home and more whimsical. I like to create a one-of-a-kind piece of art that the child will delight in. I don’t want them to have staged smiles. I want them to come away from their portrait session feeling like they had a lot of fun. To see the joy in their eyes when the children see their composited image, they see themselves as an imaginary character… it’s fun and rewarding. I’m bringing to life something they only see in their head.”


For this event, girls (toddlers and up) will get the royal treatment as a stylist prepares her for the shoot with dress selection and accessories. Then she’ll be transported into a fairy tale world as she gets her picture taken on a beautiful storybook set. As she plays and delights in being the unique princess she always imagined she could be, this joy will be captured in heirloom portraits… But that’s just the beginning.


Emmy award winning producer, Hollie Brubaker from Thespis per Lacus Media will shoot beautiful footage of each child’s photography session, then record a short interview with each child and the special story that unfolds. The video will be creatively edited into a one minute vignette, a keepsake video. “There’s more video than ever being taken on smartphones, but how often do people have nice lighting, sound and creative shots that truly bring out their child’s essence?” says Brubaker.  “We are using the same quality you get from professional photos to actually bring them to life and share more than just a split second in time.”

Lyon and Brubaker both have a background in theatre, which they admit has given them an advantage in their work. Not only do they have the conceptual knowledge for ideas, but the technical and creative skills to bring them to fruition.

This event is tailored for girls, but a Superhero session is being planned for both boys and girls in the coming months.

They are offering three packages starting at just $175.  This is a one day affair and space is very limited. Contact (330) 221-0170 or to book a session.
