A new trend? – Yes, maybe it is but the original idea comes from way back in time. Think about it as a portrait from the 1600th century with a modern touch. It’s a portrait that will last forever.
What makes the photos so special?
The light, the clothes, the props and the editing. These photos are not snapshots as you know already. It takes time to get these beautiful results of your child. From the booked session until you have the photos at home it can take up to 4-6 weeks.
When you have booked a session with me it’s time to start to plan the session regarding what to wear and to think about props and when to do it! Then we do the session and after that there are a few hours of editing. When you have seen the gallery it’s time to order the photos. After the order is done the photos are printed in a professional lab and sent to back to me.
It’s really about your child this session. Try to involve them too so they feel that they look nice and that they have chosen the clothes together with you. Think about props, does you child like hats, scarfs, dresses, books, a special instrument? Maybe you have a pet you would like to include too?
During the photo session we take it slow, get comfortable and if you want some music in the background it would be great. Kids love music. So do I.
Why no smile?
We want the eyes to speak and this is one of the key role in the photos. It’s not forbidden to smile but to get the right look of the Fine Art Photography we will keep a natural face and the body will speak the language.
Black and white is also possible. Just look at this stunning girl below in black and white.
Fine Art may not be for everyone. When I met my cousin about a year ago, just after I had been to Paulina Duczman’s workshop in Italy, and told her about the Fine Art Children Photography my cousin said: – No, it’s ok but I don’t like that kind of photography. I like more the lifestyle photos outdoor in the nature. Guess what she said six month later when I met her during the summer?
Linda, by the way, I’ve been thinking about those Fine Art Portraits and I have seen them more now on your Instagram and Facebook. I actually changed my mind. I really like those portraits. (YAY!)
It is a trend and hopefully here to stay for a long time. I love them. I put my children in front of the backdrops every now and then to practice with my children but also of course to capture them in my way of Fine Art.
Unfortunately one of my boys doesn’t want to be in front of the camera… I have to force him and bribe him. He is not 2 years old, he is almost 15…
What else? Yes, I’m moving… again… to Stockholm… So, if you would like to do this Fine Art Photography here in Switzerland I’m available until the end of May. In Stockholm I will be available in September for Fine Art Photography. Looking forward seeing you!
