Picture day 183 – Shaking with laughter :)

© Petra Stridfeldt

For some time ago when my son and his lovely girlfriend came to visit over a weekend, I asked if I could photograph them and of course they said yes 🙂  My plan was to take some nice portraits of them separately but instead this was the result. Hampus, my son, is such a character that can make most people laugh which can be a dilemma for a photographer that is trying to keep the camera still. Anyway I got some shots that wasn’t blurred by me shaking with laughter. Every time I look at these photographs it makes me smile and I remember that happy photo shoot  though I didn’t get the portraits I had in mind when started.

    Love these portraits! It’s just like old times, when we took pictures in these little ‘picture-houses’.
    Great idea!

      Cheers I’m glad you like them. You are right about these pictures houses I have a few pics of me and my friends and they actually look like this 🙂

    Portrait shots often don’t turn out the way you intend, but that’s part of the fun! 🙂

      Yes you right. I’m always excited to go through my portraits after a photo shoot 🙂

    Fabulous posed sponmteneity and what wonderful characters. What a great idea. This is photography at its best making mere portraiture very bland in comparison!
