Fairytale Shoot: The Mermaid

Of my siblings and I (there are four of us in total), I’m the quiet one, by a long shot. My brothers are both totally confident, and my sister, well, she’s just a rockstar. And lucky for me, my sister, Rowan, brings it out of me. Long story short, my sister and I were talking to this gorgeous stylist at the Paul Mitchell salon in Miami a few weeks ago when we were getting our hair dyed sombré. This stylist, Whitney, had the most gorgeous white blonde hair and my sister and I could not stop gushing over her. After talking way too much, we found out that Whitney actually loved mermaids and owned a mermaid tail. I mean, how cool is that? It was seriously all of my childhood fantasies come true, because really, who didn’t want to be a mermaid? (Still do.) Well, we’re taking it one awesome step further, because Whitney is sharing an exclusive look at her mermaid photoshoot.


Get to know Whitney:

Hi, my name is Mermaid Whitney. I’m originally from the central coast of California but I’m now living in Miami, Florida. I attend Paul Mitchell Cosmetology School, enjoy the beach and being a mermaid. Ever since I was a little girl I loved mermaids and doing hair and makeup. Today I get to live out both of my childhood dreams. I have a 20 pound silicone neoprene mermaid tail that is totally swimmable and functional!

The photo shoot pics were taken back home at Avila Beach, California by my friend/photographer Hannah Littier. The video was filmed at a private beach in West Palm Beach, Florida by my cousin, videographer Brandon Nelson. I love being able to swim in the open ocean in my tail. For me, there’s no better feeling in the world.

    this is a fantasy come true…. but not for me…
    I’m way too claustrophobic to ever get into a tail llike that.
    I appreciate Whitney’s beauty in it though….
