Family Portrait in the studio –  Schitts Creek style

When Matthew got in touch to book their session, he said that he and the family wanted to do their session in the style of ‘Schitts Creek’… If you’re like me and have never heard of it, it’s a TV program on Netflix. So a quick check on google and I had an idea of what they wanted. Mostly something with the two armchairs.

In the studio we have the nice cream ‘chaise’ lounge but not arm chairs… thankfully my friend Juanita who runs a hair dressing salon, had two in her waiting area and let me borrow them for the session. Score!

So we used the chair arm chairs she lent me on the grey back drop and then the cream chaise on the white back drop for some variety.

The family consisted of Matthew, his sister, her husband and their daughter Aliyah and the dog, a very cut Maltese x Shitzu.

Aliyah was a little tired on the day and did take some persuading from mum and me but we got some beautiful photos of them all even if we did have to sing the same song over and over again.
