Every so often your artistic needs are looking to create something new, something different, created from a scratch. I have to admit, I read the Harry Potter books a good couple of times. I am full of admiration for J.K Rowling for her vision and making it all happen when it all was going against her. She proves that we need to make our dreams come true!
But back to the photoshoot now. My five year old son, Benjamin, perfectly took on the roll of Harry Potter. It was his first time posing for me outside of all regular family photos (to be honest, don’t have that many of them either). It was just about to get dark so we literally had about twenty minutes to complete the session, but I had all my shots already in my head so it was a matter of just shooting it in the camera. How lucky I was that Primark had all the Harry Potter costumes in stock! Still, to make it look more realistic, I made my own wand, Hogwarts letters and even sculpted a mandrake!
Since Harry Potter is a story about magic, I could not miss this element in my own photographs. Have a look at the final result of the session. Hope you’ll enjoy it!
