What do you do when you know you’re going to be away from your home country for the festive period, and you want to show off your new stomping ground to your friends and family back home? How about putting a family portrait, shot on location in Doha, on a Christmas card? That’s exactly what I did with the gorgeous Hodgson family recently with a family photo shoot at Katara, Doha.
Mum Nathalie did a fabulous styling job with beautiful, christmassy red dresses for her and super cutie Charlize, and matching knitted tank tops for dad Thyrone and little Lance – and Lance’s little red bow tie was nothing short of adorable. We chose late afternoon so that we could make the most of the beautiful golden hour light, and the Katara backdrop did not disappoint – nor did the bubbles, hide and seek game, and babycinos 🙂
I loved this fun and super energetic shoot, with an absolutely lovely family, and hope the resulting shots are memories that they’ll treasure for years to come…sadly I’m not sure I can say the same for Charlize’s brand new glittering ruby shoes which, it turns out, probably weren’t made for scootering!
