My Mother/Daughter Shoot


Yesterday was my mom’s birthday and I was lucky enough to be there with her to celebrate. One of my gifts to her was doing a shoot for her in the studio. She had wanted to wear her mother’s (my grandmother’s) wedding dress, so Kristine¬†styled the hair and makeup on the 1940’s era, where it originated. I’d wanted to have some pics of us done together as well, so I brought along my own wedding dress for one of the shots.

Then we each chose an evening dress from Molteno Creations and did a darker, evening-wear look.

And yes I took the photos of the two of us myself. I set up the camera on a tripod and then with a remote trigger snapped our pic. The trick is to compose the shot with one person in shot, allowing for the other person in the frame. It took a few shots, but we got there eventually.

They’ve made such special memories for me and my mom and I’m thrilled to have the images as keepsakes. ¬†Abigail K Photography 1 Abigail K Photography 2 Abigail K Photography 3 Abigail K Photography 4 Abigail K Photography 5 Abigail K Photography 6 Abigail K Photography 7 Abigail K Photography 8 Abigail K Photography 9
