Mother and Daughter Holiday Portraits: A Rustic Retreat

Mother and Daughter Holiday Portraits: A Rustic Retreat

Watch our Video A Rustic Retreat: Mother and Daughter Holiday Portraits here.

Let’s take a rustic Mother and Daughter Holiday Portraits retreat together!  This woodpile is a favorite location of mine and its close to the studio.  It represents so much of what I love about the holiday season.  It beckons togetherness and hugs.  It reminds us of stories shared around a campfire.  And snuggling close in a winter mountain chill.

The woodpile was a perfect setting to capture the heart and essence of entrepreneurial business woman Tracy Darling and her daughter, Bellaa.  Tracy is a dealer of luxury handbags.  We combined this mother and daughter location shoot into a very unique commercial product session for her.  We shot some amazing marketing images featuring a collection of her Louis Vuitton handbags.  Even a quick glance at these portraits brings the smell of woodsy fragrances to mind.

Surround your rustic portraits with a variety of natural and earthy textures.  This includes shelves, bookcases and tabletop arrangements.  Include vintage materials like tin or other worn or hammered metals, cement, wood and glass.
