Claudia's Family Session, Wooden Backdrops and Vintage Looks!

It's been a busy month at the studio. I'v been teaching 18 hours a week, have been off learning new things at workshops, secured my spot for going back to college after summer and have had an unusual amount of amazingly cute pet sessions in! It's been amazing.

The biggest change though, comes with the new backdrop that I'v spent my spare hours over the last week building into the studio. And I'm so excited to show you all the results!!

It was finished yesterday, and I couldn't have asked for a better first session. I'v covered a Christening, a birthday, a cake smash and some birthday studio photo's with Claudia's family before and it's a pleasure to see them every time. So when she came to me with her vintage idea It made perfect sense to have them in as a first session on the new setup!

Unlike most of my family sessions, I went with just one light cutting across the image. Lots of lovely shadows and contrast to make everything pop! We pulled out a little crate and everything was set. I honestly cannot thank Claudia and Beto enough for their efforts on the outfits either.

Cannot wait to show the whole family the entire set later today. As a little added extra to try and make things even more vintage looking I did my first ever Wetplate Edits. in this session too.

Here's a little peek at how the first one came out.
