Jennifer Schroeder gives her daughter Ella Lemonis, 3, an after-work kiss at her mother's home in Beaumont. Ella has preferred to dress like a fairy ever since she was a flower girl in a wedding.
Fayrouz actually found the Fairy of Beaumont. Because of our work schedules, we don't see much of each other lately. So, Fay decided to ride along with me as I hunted for features. I noticed the girl and her grandmother, but they didn't look like they were doing anything. As we drove past, Fay matter-of-factly said, "The little girl has wings."
So, I turned Storm around to A) make sure my wife hadn't "lost it" and B) shoot a little girl with wings. Sure enough, she had wings.
