Aayan in the Snow

I have to admit, as cold as it was, I somehow managed to walk to my pal’s place and took the opportunity of the ‘white stuff’ to photograph her son. Good thing that they only lived 20mins walk from my house (they have since moved).

So, with my camera ready…..snapping the snow covered landscape en-route to her house, I managed to get there with myself and kit in one piece. Walking on ice/snow it not for the weak. One needs special shoes, clothing and walking skills.

Snow covered church on my friend’s street….

All in all, after much convincing for them to leave the house, I set up the location just outside her door. Snow has got to be the best natural reflector ever. You don’t need to do much to get the light under the model’s chin, eyes, etc. Shame about it being cold and dealing with a child……I would have loved to continue to take more pictures.

Here are some of the shots taken on the day…..

I went ahead and ordered 8 x 12 prints for them via @LoxleyColour and they loved them.
