You may remember Jess, Jesse and Asta from their recent pregnancy family shoot that I shared. This stage of life really is incredible with everything changing so quickly. Sometimes it can feel like a blur so it’s important to capture these special moments.
We wanted to do something a little different for this shoot. Jess is a strings music teacher and her love of music is woven into her family. Even little Asta plays a tiny violin. Because of this, I thought we would try for a shot of Sadie on a beautiful chello.
The shoot was shot in our Townsville photography studio. Of course Sadies safety comes first so at no time was she on the instrument without her Mum’s protective hand on her. Jess firstly placed Sadie on the cello holding onto her bottom (I took a shot) then Jess moved her hand placement onto Sadies head and shoulders (I took another shot). The end result (drumroll) is both of these images stitched together giving the illusion that Sadie was perched on the cello alone. Ta Darrrr! During the shoot, I made sure I also captured this family of four’s first family photos. Little Asta is beyond excited about being a big sister “It’s ok Sadie girl” she said as she soothed and fussed over her. Darling!
These are the two images I used to create the one hero shot.
