I normally photograph breastfeeding mothers in my natural light studio in Scotland but as most of the world right now; normal life is not normal.

I am the worst at photographing my own family and thought there’s nothing like a family lockdown to finally get them in front of my camera.

When I started looking at my favorite pieces of art, it normally included moody looking children. I knew this project was perfect for my lot.

Some pieces I was inspired by, others I wanted to see how close I could get to the original. With a few more weeks of isolation ahead of us, I am looking for more moody faced kids to replicate with my own.
