Shelf Candy Saturday : Born Wicked

Shelf Candy Saturday is a weekly meme hosted by Five Alarm Book Reviews. Shelf Candy Saturday showcases book covers, old or new, and gives some much deserved recognition to the designers who are responsible.  

The mischievous and whimsical photograph on the Born Wicked book jacket was taken by 19-year old French photographer Alexandra Sophie. 

Sophie says; One day, I realized that it didn't match with that world that I was imagining and dreaming about. I gave myself the mission to prove to the world that softness, love, innocence and dreams . . .A world that is not always easy to see, but that I try to show with my camera."  

Rumor has it that Sophie may be doing a photo shoot for the cover of Star Dust. (The Cahill Witch Chronicles #2)

Sophie's photography has also been  featured on other book covers ,including Through To You by Emily Hainsworth.
