Far, far away, where the land is white with snow. Slept a little pixie with dark, dark hair – a little baby Eskimo!
I tend to do more lifestyle or photojournalistic work as I think they have a raw, emotional quality which styled photography does not have. But I certainly believe styled newborn work has earned its popular spot in the world of photography with masters like Anne Geddes taking the lead. There’s just something about a sleeping baby, propped up in a sweet way that makes us all go ga-ga.
For my styled newborn work I try to move away from cookie-cutter looks and over-the-top props. Instead I opt for natural, hand-made materials, subtle colours and a minimalism. I also like to create a sense of magical wonder with my images and love thinking up little stories around images like this on of the little Eskimo Pixie.
