It has been a surreal couple of months with the Covid-19 pandemic reaching all corners of the globe. Most countries including South Korea have had to slow down activities significantly to flatten the curve. Needless to say, photo shoots have been affected as well. This particular shoot with the Cross family south of Seoul was booked right before things hit the fan here in Korea. It turned out the shoot itself had to be rescheduled because the studio we rented had to shut down for a few weeks as a safety measure. Everyone was understanding and flexible of course, given the situation.
A few weeks later, the shoot finally happened and it was a wonderful breath of fresh air, even though I was wearing a constrictive mask the whole time. 😉 It was great to get out of the house and shoot again. We had a great time shooting in all corners of the studio, working with the ever changing dynamic and energy. I think we did well because as their dad remarked, the energy levels were even higher at the end than when we started!
Please enjoy some of my favorite images from that session, taken at Seongnam’s Studio 33.
