Quirky family photography alert!
A few weeks ago I received an email that made me smile. A family, who it turns out only live a few doors away, wanted to book me for a family photography session... with a twist. They wanted to be cooking and they wanted to be messy. Really messy.
It's the first time a family have asked for such a thing, but I'm wondering when people see these photos if I might start getting a few more requests. Before the shoot I visited the house for a quick recce to make sure it would work for the shots I had in mind, and, with a bit of furniture removal it was perfect! We positioned the large kitchen table in front of the french doors to maximise on the light and let the mayhem commence.
I'm a bit of a clean freak at home, so when the Dad started dusting the kids with icing sugar from a great height I started having mild palpitations imagining what the cleaning up process would be like, but from a photography point of view I was delighted because I knew the photos would be amazing.
As you'll see from the images below, this session oozes personality. The kids were absolutely loving making the cookies, they were excited about sitting on the kitchen table and they loved getting messy. And the photos demonstrate this in spades!
The icing on the cake for me though (excuse the pun) was how the family have decided to display the images. They have bought a multi aperture frame along with one of my print packages and have be displayed 28 images in one frame, grouped together. I am SO pleased! This shoot really needs to be displayed as a montage as the photos really tell a story when viewed together.
So, if you want to turn your house upside down and get messy too then give me a call!
And this is what the frame looks like on the wall - perfect!
