on May 3rd I had two lovely girls over for a mother’s day shoot.
Francis and Michelle wanted to surprise their mother with a nice photo of them both together. Not being used to getting photographed this way made things a little chaotic but in a good way. Some music in the background and starting of with some basic poses quickly broke the ice.
I asked upfront for them to bring a selection of matching clothes so we could try some different settings. I researched some example duo shot photos which helps for setting up and getting your idea explained.
Francis and Michelle loosened up quickly and were in for some closer shots. Getting the lips exactly aligned was quite the challenge and looking back I think I did not have the correct focal length but the dimensions of my improvised studio did not allow anything longer than 85mm. Still very happy with the result.
After the shoot comes the proces of selection and image-editing. Francis and Michelle chose the color version of this difficult shot and although I agree the facial expression is better suited for a mother’s day gift I can’t help liking the b/w just a little more. Their eyebrows line up so perfectly and the expression of Michelle has that “Don’t mess with me” look.
