A few years ago I did some antique-style portraits for children. I loved them but haven't done too much with these since then, except one really darling little boy. This winter a local mom asked me about antique portraits, and I was thrilled to get all my props back out again.
So, this little girl was hilarious. She started out a little shy, which is very normal by the way. She was not too into the tea party, until...
she realized that the little bunny we were trying to get her to hold would be much funnier to push off her lap. It worked like a charm - funny every time!
The bunny was up on the chair... for now!
She also loved the book of children's poetry. So many fun pictures.
Look out, bunny. Ha!
What a huge pleasure it was to get to play with this darling little girl one morning. I absolutely love it when children start out shy and uncertain but end up in peals of laughter.
If you like the vintage look and are interested in doing this with your children or family, give me a call!
I'd love to set up a session. These pictures were done inside,
but also I think we could also set up a really neat theme outdoors when it gets nice out again. (I can't wait!)
If you like the idea of a creative theme, but the vintage style is not your thing, I have other creative photography ideas posted here - look through and see if you feel inspired to do something creative with your children! I'd love to work with you.
