Children’s Portraits as Art
Let’s be honest, there’s really no better art to decorate your walls than of your little ones
Fine art photographer Kim Campbell has been pursuing a line of one-of-a-kind unique portraiture for children. Using an eclectic wardrobe of costumery, masks and found objects she cobbles together dreamy scenes, mischievous moments and deeply thoughtful psychological portraits. Working with children ages 4 and older, Kim let’s her little subjects be part of the process. From picking costume pieces, clothes and props. Together they make magic. This delightful style of image making has pleased even the most discriminating consumers of portrait photography.
Commission a Portrait
There are many stages that go into the creation of El Corazon™ imagery and a lifetime of experience. The first stage is coming into the studio for a complimentary portrait planning session with your child. At that appointment you will be able to introduce your child to Kim Campbell and together discuss some concepts for the photography session.
Kim will connect with your kiddo and strike up an ongoing conversation about his or her interests, dreams and curiosities. She'll talk to you about how to search from personal family treasures that could be included in the portrait. Children at least four or older are best suited for this type of photography. Your child should be able to take direction and be an active participant in the creative process.
The process of creating an evocative piece of art will involve hours both in and out of the digital darkroom. When you come back to your selection appointment you will see between 20 - 30 completed photographs.
Our full range of photography products are available to choose from and Kim will have recommendations about the best surface to print your portrait upon.
