I love using creative props in family photography, anything to get out of the box and step away from the cookie cutter portrait session. My approach to photography is all about interacting with clients and creating memorable photographs that are anything but standard.
I recently ordered some holi powder, you know that brightly colored powder they use at Color Runs, and asked Felicia if I could test it out with her kids. We did a quick, impromptu family session in her backyard.
The kids had a great time throwing it at each other, they giggled madly which made for even better photos. The bright colors created some awesome contrast and really made the images unique. Felicia even got into the fun, throwing powder and modeling.
I will definitely be using this technique again!
