Brothers {1000 words #6}


A picture is worth a 1000 words

Delving into my image archive to re-publish a series of images that encapsulate meaning and emotion

This image is a firm favourite of mine. It was taken 4 years ago and features two one-month old twin brothers, Leo and Nici. It was one of the first of many images taken for a wonderful family. I’ve been very fortunate to have photographed this family on a number of occasions over the last 4 years.

This image was taken in the loft room using natural light only. It is an unusual image because you can’t see the boys faces and most people would have turned the boys over. We were in between shots and Julia, the boys’ mum turned them over onto their tummies. I immediately saw an opportunity for a great photo! We quickly repositioned the boys (you can put very young baby’s anywhere!), I jumped on the bed to get a high viewpoint and this was the result! Having the boys facing down makes for a much more interesting photo and also makes the most of their carefully chosen outfits too. The high viewpoint helps to illustrate how tiny the boys were at the time.

This type of image is crying out to be printed BIG! A life-size version would be amazing! I would suggest having it made into a very large canvas or block wrap (a print bound to wood which is slightly elevated from the wall). It would be a fitting and stylish addition to the bedroom or lounge (like the example below).

Coincidently I will be visiting this lovely family again today to photograph the boys 4th birthday party. I can’t wait! I had so much fun photographing them last year as I always do, the results of which can be seen here.
