Portrait Photographer – Project Mom and Son
My friend always complains that her 2 boys look just like their father, and nothing like her.
Couple months ago, her husband commissioned me to design a Portrait Session showing how much their young son looks just like the mother when she was 9 years old.
We came with the idea of using an old photograph of her that she took at her “school picture day” in 1990. I would reproduce the scene the best as I could to almost look alike they pictures were taken at the same day.
Remember… These pictures were taken 24 years apart from each other, and I didn’t have the negative of the original picture of the mom (only an old picture from a old frame).
The image that I’m posting here is just an easy illustration of the project. The real final product he used to surprise her on her Birthday was a nice 10” x 20” wooden frame with double mat with 2 opens for two horizontal 5” x 7” pictures (her image on the left and the son’s picture on the right).
I was not there, when he gave the presents to her, but she called me latter to thank me for all the effort and dedication. She said that first she got a nice $$$ gift card from a local store, but then, when she opened the present with the pictures, she couldn’t contain the tears of joy.
I’m used of doing Hi-end Photography Work and I know my clients appreciate how much effort I put in each project, but for me… nothing compares with the feeling I feel when a client contact me back letting me know how much they loved my work.
