My son Tony and I created a Minecraft Photo Series earlier this year. It was totally his idea, since he’s a major fan and all!

It took about two weeks from start to finish for our initial series concept to come to life. At first I was simply creating this with my son because I know how much it means to him, he’s loved Minecraft for so many years. But after working on the initial photos I enjoyed working on them so much we both wanted to continue the series!

Once the first series was complete I started to brainstorm a second one. I knew I wanted to include ‘Alex’ somehow (my son was pretty stoked about the idea…yay!). I then found the perfect little girl to bring her to life; a friend of ours named Astronomy.

She simply fit right in!

After one day of shooting and a month of editing (on and off on my spare time) series 2 finally came to life. With the help of our friend Astronomy, my son Tony, and my husband Anthony, we finally accomplished a sequel.

We hope you enjoy!

PS. You can find Series 1 here.

Meet Alex and her favorite pet kitty

In Series 1 we left Steve navigating through portals, caves, and scenic terrains in a continuous search for his pal Alex

With no luck he decides to travel to The End, and continues on to an End City where he finds Alex. With no time for greetings, Steve gives Alex a set of freshly-minted Elytra Wings, and off they went gliding with diamond swords at the ready.

Upon arriving back to the overworld, they quickly rescued a pig in danger as the night was inevitably setting in

Mobs were relentless. Our two brave heroes soon would have to fight their way through in order to find shelter til morning.

Days later they find a village where a Farmer is willing to make a trade for emerald

Steve and Alex trade a few gems. The golden sword Alex chose, a delicious pumpkin pie, and a much-needed map were well worth the trade. They’d been on the road for far too long, they needed the fuel and map to make it back to Alex’s house. You’ll be happy to hear that the pig they rescued found this village to be the perfect home!

With map in hand our two courageous pals start their journey once again. Alex is ready to head back home to recharge after such a long adventure

Alex’s home overlooks the ocean as an Iron Golem protects it while she’s away

They arrive as the sun rises to the east. Steve and Alex enjoy one last sparring session before he heads back to his house.
