Photographer Audrey Simper is responsible for these softly surreal portraits, which focus on women in enchanting nature-filled settings. These whimsical shots capture youthful women frolicking, mostly outside, in a way that seems magical.

In one of these striking shots a sleeping beauty appears to have live goldfish leaping from her mouth. The wall in the background is painted light blue, which almost makes it seem as though she's sleeping under water like a mermaid. In another shot a winged woman dressed in white is seen resting against a tree deep in the woods, which makes her seem like a fairy. Other shots feature women resting on clouds, and girls surrounded by oversized everyday objects (which makes them look like modern day Thumbelinas).

These majestic female-focused shots empower women by portraying them as supernatural, stunning individuals.
