I am so proud to share this ‘baby’ of mine, no pun intended. This project was in my heart for a while, but I didn’t have time to do it the way I wanted to. So, thanks to the slowing down of my life, and mostly in my head, I finally can present this to you. This is Boy and Rabbit, 1814 by great Henry Raeburn, which I saw a while ago and wanted to create a similar photograph in the same style. It wasn’t as easy as I thought it would be.
At first I had to find the outfit. Ellie Pomianowski with EDIFY – Costumes and Set Design for Photography and Events helped me with this problem! She is awesome, she did everything for me, down to the smallest details!Ellie, thank you SO SO MUCH! 🙂
Then I had to find a rabbit… That took longer than I thought!! Thanks to Lisa with Painted Oaks Academy who let me borrow her precious bunny Pudding 🙂 Which matched pretty well! Then I had to let my son’s hair grow… So a couple of months later everything was ready!
Again, was much harder then I thought.. The bunny didn’t want to stay still, my son didn’t want to stay still! I tried to match the light too, which didn’t want to stay still 😛 But other than that I am happy. What do you think?
P.S. And a little teaser – I had to create a painting with my beautiful daughter too, so stay tuned, it is almost done.
P.P.S. My son got his haircut the next day. Now he looks like a boy again 🙂
