Looking For Some Edgy Kids Photos? We Know Just the Place…
If you’re on the hunt for kids portraits that are a little bit fashion, and a whole lot of cool then you should check out Bam Bam Portraits. The brainchild of photographer Olivia Kirkpatrick and stylist Rachel Morton, Bam Bam Portraits is aimed at kids aged between two and ten. Shot in black and white, the portraits are not your typical over-posed (and sometimes, let’s face it, a bit cringe!) kids photos. Instead, their services and skills offer something a little more unique. “This idea has just sort of organically grown and we are amazed and excited at the level of interest,” says Olivia.
What I loved best about the day was that I didn’t have to think about what to dress Raff in. Instead, Rachel had racks of clothes lined up at the ready and handpicked styles to suit his personality. When working with the kids she often expertly mixes adult and children’s pieces together which results in an air of dress ups and make-believe that I just adore. I heard my niece Harper (above left) was a dream to work with – she loved helping to pick the clothes and getting to play dress ups for the day. Unfortunately the pair had their work cut out for them with Raff which resulted in a series of looks I’ve coined ‘grumpface’ (see above right). Cutting two new teeth and nursing a cold he was in no mood, often snapping at Rachel when she dared to straighten his bowtie. I was sweating with the realisation he was ‘that kid’ on the shoot. To their credit, Olivia and Rachel kindly pretended he wasn’t!
