"All our dreams can come true if we only have the courage to pursue them." (Walt Disney.)
My name is Savannah Kate Morgan and I am a fairytale photographer from North Louisiana. Since I was a little girl, I have been obsessed with fairytales and all things whimsical and magical. I have always used photography as a way to document how I see the world. I have used it as an escape sometimes, from reality. I believe that in going through the process of imagining a concept and bringing it to life, I collect pieces of myself, and awaken aspects that are buried deep down inside of me. I am highly influenced by stories such as Alice in Wonderland, The Little Mermaid, and The Neverending Story- anything that is ethereal, whimsical, and promotes dreaming as a form of distorted reality. I use photography as a door, or a Rabbit Hole, to allow me passageway to a completely unmapped world and to design my dreams and my future. Though I photograph pretty much all things, such as weddings, children, high school seniors, etc., my passion has and always will be fairytale sessions. I have compiled a collection of images that I have created over the years, side-by-side with their original fairytales films/illustrations.

#9 The Neverending Story
"The Neverending Story" ©Savannah Kate Photography "Years ago, when Savannah was two and a half her parents decided to sell their home and build a new one. Since their home sold the first day on the market in necessitated an immediate move. "Papa" and I invited the small family into our home to live, since we had plenty of room and an empty nest. My dining room was dismantled and turned into a media room for Savannah where she would watch fairytale movies endlessly. At two and a half years old, Savannah could already operate a television and VCR. She had a routine of watching fairytale movies every evening and many mornings. As I picture her now in her little bean bag chair, she always had her "puff" (stuffed animal), pacifier, red rubber boots, and a stocking hat pulled down to her eyes. Savannah's clothes changed, but never her accessories. As this movie played she became totally absorbed and I could see the wonder in her eyes. I would peek in and see Falkor flying through the air with a small child holding on for dear life. The Neverending Story became Savannah's baby sitter, nanny, friend, and family. She usually ignored the five adults vying for her attention. Needless to say we all competed with her movie and often found ourselves joining in on the floor with her in order to enjoy her enthusiasm. Little did I suspect that The Neverending Story would have such a huge impact on her life and on her art."- Savannah's Grandmother, Darla Thames "Nana".

#23 Peter Pan
“Dreams do come true, if only we wish hard enough. You can have anything in life if you will sacrifice everything else for it.” ― J.M. Barrie, Peter Pan. Please read below. This is Haidyn. Haidyn was born with cerebral palsy. Though he could hardly stand at the time, much less walk, he said all he wanted to do was to "fly like Peter Pan". This little boy is such an incredible miracle and I was so honored to make this picture a reality for him. This picture represents all of the obstacles he has overcome and the growth he has endured. "Haidyn was born at 26weeks, he weighed 2lbs 4oz, he suffered from seizures shortly after being born which caused a small brain bleed. This is why he has Cerebral Palsy. At age 3 Haidyn had a surgery called Selective Dorsal Rhizotomy. This surgery helped loosen his high muscle tone. Haidyn has had lots of therapy, prayers & the love of his family to get where he is now. 2 wks ago Haidyn had Myofascial Percutaneous (PERCS) to help him to be flat footed & maintain balance."
"Let me be your wings, leave behind the world you know for another world of wondrous things."
