With some people, there are just certain environments, people, items or even music that really describe their personality, so it makes sense for them to be photographed where they really light up. An artist in their studio, a rider with her horses, a musician at his piano, a yoga enthusiast in workout gear on her mat at the beach…..or in this case, a country boy at home on the farm with mans best friend.
Photographs are meant to tell the story of you and the best way to do that is through a themed photo shoot. Themed photo shoots don’t have to mean dressing you up as your favourite character and decorating the scenery to go with the theme (though it can, as shown here in this Little Red Riding Hood inspired Themed Shoot). Instead it is about putting you in that place where you are most comfortable, to capture a photograph that describes your personality through your surroundings or your props and is a true reflection of you –not just an average photoshoot.
Being married to a farmer, and coming from a country town myself, I love these pictures. This farm and country themed photo shoot gives you a glimpse of the pride that is the inspiration for his hard work on the farm, a teaser of the beauty that is the country he is surrounded by, with an added heartstrings pull when you realise the love and respect between man and mans best friend.
But what I love most about these photographs is that he too realises how they are a reflection of him, one that should be kept forever, and that is why they understand the value of a quality photo album. Now he and his family can forever look back at this moment in time and relive that same pride, love and beauty that has made this young man shine.
This farm themed photo shoot with a terrific country boy as the subject really allows Jade to capture the essence of his soul, and the photo album means that the light that shines from his personality is forever captured and never forgotten – the gift we didn’t even know we wanted to give ourselves.
