Nothing like the real thing! I got commissioned to shoot a cool clothing range for babies and young toddlers. Everything was well organised. I got to the premises, set up the studio and lights to find out that at the last minute two of the three young models were not well. Here I am in the middle of Croydon on a Sunday morning with everything set up for a great shoot with almost no models. My client says “lets find a couple of families with kids”. It took us about 10 minutes of “talent scouting” and we had a bunch of willing parents. The results were great. A bit crowded with a few parents and siblings but a lively atmosphere for the kids. You never know what you’ll encounter when shooting children’s fashion. Here are some of the shots we did.
