Children’s photography is never easy. Yes Sophia is ridiculously cute, yes she’s well behaved, but man alive she has a mind of her own. We tried everything to get her to wear the hat. “Trust us you will look sooooo cute” we said but no….she knew it was a trick to get her to wear it. I’m pretty sure she threw that thing off her head 20 or 30 times before we got enough shots. You have to admit it was really adorable and totally worth the fuss.
When I initially talked to Laura I knew that she would be game for something really out there. A little less traditional and a lot more unique. In comes the tea party suggestion. This is something I had seen on Pinterest in which a photographer took two little girls, dressed them up, put them in a field on some vintage furniture and captured their little tea party. It’s still on my bucket list of things to shoot but I had an idea for Laura, Stefan and Sophia. With agreement from Laura, we volunteered Stefan as Sophias tea party guest of honour. Him and the stuffed pig that is.
Donned in tattoos, a boa and pearls this tea party was like no other. A sweet cup of tea turned into banging tea cups and tossing cakes around. This was not your typical ‘High Tea’!
Take a peek at what might be my favorite shoot to date!
