We live in a very modern world. But that doesn’t mean you can’t create photography that harkens to another era. One of the things I love is creating vintage portraits of children. Their innocence shines through, they’re evolving personalities, their simplicity.
I had the pleasure of doing a three-generation photoshoot recently with a woman, her two daughters and their three daughters. I make sure that each heirloom portrait session ensures there’s enough time to not only get portraits of each person alone but also with different generations at one time.
I might incorporate some fresh-cut flowers. Or my Old Hollywood fresnel. Not to mention some handpainted canvases that were imported from Europe. It’s these touches that help evoke an old school feel.
Do you have children who are growing up way too fast? What do you have to remember this moment in time of them? A bunch of blurry iPhone photos that are fine for Facebook but aren’t of a high enough quality to enlarge, print and frame?
Let’s chat about ways to memorialize this time and capture you and your loved ones. It’s time to #existinphotos!
