Lily’s Summer Project

Lily and I spent the past couple of weeks recreating some famous paintings. We decided to only use things we had in the house (no buying props), and to only use a filter over the photo (no editing) to help the lighting.

EDIT: ok, so it’s been two years and I’ve discovered a lot more about photography, editing, and the like. Unfortunately I didn’t keep the originals of these photos, so sorry about their grainy quality and the terrible filter options I had at the time. If only, if only…

This was our least favorite. Its shockingly hard to do a straight portrait.

    What a wonderful, creative mother you are and what a fabulous, unforgettable experience for both of you – I love the way your darling little Lily doesn't just recreate those great paintings but inhabits them and makes them her own! Thanks for sharing them and inspiring the rest of us.
