Watercolor and Laughter : A Styled Session

Growing up in a very artistic family, I remember as a kid having my own little easel at my grandparents’ atelier and painting or drawing next to them and my mom. It was such a precious moment, listening to some classical or French music and sharing that creative space with them.

For several months I had this idea of doing a shoot with some kids painting on an easel. It was something I was dreaming of photographing for a long time, and I knew it would be such a fun and gorgeous editorial shoot to create with a talented team such as Danielle (Shaw Events) and Erika (Bueno Market). Together, we shared our inspirations, and did our best to bring our ideas to life. Erika is also creating the prettiest educational artwork for the little ones, and we thought it would be more than beautiful to incorporate her illustrations in every setup – On the wall, at the top of the easel, at the craft table. We wanted the kids to interact and play with Erika’s tools, practicing their painting, learning how to write letters and naming the days of the week together. It was so great to let them explore and have fun while we were photographing them!
