Portraits as Art
We've just turned portrait photography on it's head. For the last 8 years, fine art photographer Kim Campbell has been quietly pursuing a personal project of photographing children between the ages of 5 and 15 years. Using an eclectic wardrobe of costumery, masks and found objects she cobbles together dreamy scenes, mischievous moments and deeply thoughtful psychological portraits. Now she's expanded her line to include families and children of all ages.
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.
Next, Kim will make a home visit to further connect with your kiddo and strike up an ongoing conversation about his or her interests, dreams and curiosities. She'll peek around your home looking for personal treasures that could be included in the portrait.
Curated Collection of Props
From your grandfather's bomber jacket, to a wooden masks from your Mexican travels, musical instruments and more - you'll be surprised at the wealth of finds that might turn up in your home. An empty suitcase or laundry basket becomes the perfect receptacle for the myriad of props and clothing you discover, all of which you will later bring to the photography session. Combined with Kim's personal collection of vintage objects, clothes and wacky masks your sentimental pieces will be built into your custom artwork.
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 10 - 20 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.
We love children's photography!
