I recently came across Lorna Freytag’s work and was instantly smitten. I mean her fairy tale children’s portraits are too gorgeous!! Lorna was kind enough to share a bit about her work and her process with us!
Originally from Edinburgh, Lorna Freytag has worked as a children’s photographer in New York, Dubai, London and Sydney. Her work has appeared in publications such as Junior, Studio Bambini and Collezioni. She has also completed projects for Harrods and several exclusive children’s boutiques., Inspired by dark forests, magical landscapes and old fairytales, Lorna uses her imagination and unique style to produce spellbinding images. Each image is unique and created entirely by Lorna. From the first rough sketch to the final detailed retouching. You can pick an existing background from her collections or have her create something bespoke.
From Lorna “For a bespoke image I will produce some sketched proposals along with the quote and timescale. I photograph the children against a white background which I set up in the studio. A few days after the shoot I will edit the pictures and you will be emailed 10-15 of the best ones to pick from (at this stage they are still against a white background)., Your chosen image will then be retouched into the background and your childs portrait will be ready approximately 3 weeks later.”
Thank you so much Lorna for sharing!! I love seeing the different stages, the sketch to the final outcome!!
