PRESERVING THE MAGIC:
UNIQUE CHILDREN'S PHOTOGRAPHY THAT CAPTURES IMAGINATION.
In the whirlwind of childhood, where imaginations run wild, and dreams take flight, a treasure trove of untapped creativity is waiting to be preserved. As children, we embark on countless imaginary adventures, exploring worlds beyond reality’s grasp. What if we could capture those fleeting moments of wonder and transform them into something tangible?
Children possess an innate ability to delve into the realms of make-believe, crafting vibrant tales and characters that dwell within their imaginations. Through a collaborative process, I invite these budding visionaries to share their stories, allowing me a glimpse into their whimsical worlds. It’s a magical exchange as we discuss their imaginings, sketch out characters, and bring their narratives to life on the set.
THE ARTISTIC JOURNEY.
Beyond traditional photography, these conceptual portraits transcend the medium’s boundaries, transforming into stunning pieces of art. Hours of meticulous work go into each image, combining photography with the wizardry of digital manipulation. With the aid of Photoshop’s magic, we create captivating scenes that transport children and viewers alike into realms where anything is possible.
In the image of us racing snails, my daughter approached me with the idea one Saturday morning. I love moments like these when she allows me to step into her magical imagination. She wanted us to create an image with the concept of a race involving the three of us—myself, her brother, and herself. Quickly I began asking questions to further delve into her imagination.“What will we be racing?” I asked, to which she eagerly replied, “Snails!” Next, I asked about the race’s outcome. “Who will win?” she proclaimed, “Me, of course!” I continued, “And who will come in second?” Without hesitation, she pointed to her brother. As I playfully questioned my position, she burst into laughter, “You’re last!”Together, we roughly sketched out the concept, to ensure her vision is accurately captured. Searching through Adobe Stock, I sourced a racetrack image and various pictures of snails. In Photoshop, I roughly combined these elements to have an idea of how everything will look at the end.
The following step took us to my garage studio to capture individual photographs of us using an apple box, mimicking the position and angle of our respective snails. With all the necessary components in hand, I embarked on the artistic journey, employing my skills and the magic of Photoshop to craft the final masterpiece.
This extraordinary image now graces our home, captivating the attention of every visitor who crosses our door. Its power lies not only in its visual impact but in the story it tells—a testament to the depths of a child’s imagination and the joy that emanates when we bring their dreams to life.
