While many families take snapshots of their children, it’s not so common to see beautiful art featuring these little ones. With almost everyone seems to be taking shots with their smartphone, others want to create lasting family memories that will blow everyone’s minds.
Introducing your children to art is one of the fundamentals when they’re little. They learn their colors and how to draw. Some parents might introduce their child to fingerpainting and other art too. Combining your love for your family with photography and beautiful art is a unique way to create those lasting memories.
Photographers like Anna Rozwadowska take stunning family photographs to another level. Instead of taking standard pictures of her children; Jacob and Barbara, she creates costumes for them too.
After years and years of photographing her children, she decided she wanted to do something more unique and memorable. She’s made ethereal fairy costumes for her daughter as well as a diving helmet for her son. Barbara can be seen in some photographs wearing a tutu her mother designed and sewed herself. In other photographs, she might be wearing a dress and riding a broom for Halloween.
Anna says that being a mother makes her practical. She finds the cheapest fabrics to create her outfits, and the locations for the photo shoots are never more than a few miles from her home.
She says that art is always evolving, and so she wants to find unique ways to capture their childhood that is all her own. She works as a secondary school teacher, raises her two children and has time for sewing and photography. She believes that her art inspires and rejuvenates her. There are never enough hours in the day to create all the art she wants to. She’s always coming up with new ideas for posing and photographing her children.
With her 3-year-old little girl, she knows it’s not easy to keep her still for more than six minutes. She doesn’t have her children pose because she wants them to look as natural as possible in the fairytale setting she’s created.
Her photographs are ethereal, otherworldly and magical, and her children will cherish the beauty of these photographs for years to come. It’s something they’ll be able to share with their own children when they’re grown.
