Sometimes its funny to see how things work out.
When I were first setting up Les Enfants a Paris I always wanted to do photoshoots that weren’t, well, traditional photoshoots. For me children have to enjoy it, and that’s why children’s fashion photographer Emily Kornya and myself decided to organise these playdate photoshoots where the children can come along enjoy themselves and play – yeah, they model clothes but it’s about more then just the clothes.
Don’t get me wrong, regular photoshoots are important, but we both think it’s more inkeeping with the blog that the shoots are natural and children are children.
So two years or so on it’s interesting seeing how they’ve grown, and evolved into a lovely little social network of friends, both children and mothers, with the children growing together and mothers and children staying in touch after the shoots, and planning ahead of the next playdate.
Here’s a new playdate with old and some new friends. Get inspired!
