Recreating a Childhood Photograph in the Studio in Sussex
Recreating a Childhood Photograph in the Studio in Sussex

So a customer asked me if I would recreate a much loved family photo as a birthday present for the grandmother of the group as a very special birthday present now that the kids are all grown up.  Sounds like fun I thought!

So they sent me over a snap of the original photo which is hanging on Grandma’s wall and everyone arrived at the appointed date and time to recreate it.  One very noticeable challenge was that the little girl who is standing at the front of the original photo is now taller than the lot of them so we had to cheat and kneel her down to get everyone’s height about right but other than that, it was time to copy the poses and look slightly off camera.  I love the finished updated result though we did take a few minutes to do a more modern grouping to go along with it.  Well, seeing as we had a rare chance of having everyone together in the studio, it would have been rude not to.
