Challenging Family Portraits

February 10, 2014  •  1 Comment

Like, Who Wants A Treat A few years back an employee at one of my favorite agencies asked me to photograph her wedding announcement,  I quickly (but professionally) responded that I really did not take wedding or individual portraits.  She responded that theirs would not be the typical one, it was more like a family portrait, only her's included three dogs, two cats and her fiancee seated in a 60's style living room that was stored in her basement.  To which I quickly responded, I'm all in.

To pull off this nostalgic image we constructed a small set in the studio, laid down some shag carpet, put a coat of golden yellow paint on the wall and set up Laura's living room set.  There was one small obstacle to work around, we only had about half of the items need to complete the room.  This mean't shooting the image in stages and piecing it together in the post production.  The result was this hip image of Laura, her soon to be husband, Ross and their furry family.
