Locked Illusions Photography

In the spirit of my previous post “Zombie Mums & Tots” I’ve found an incredible, adorable photography company based in Houston, Texas.

It started when I found this photograph on weheartit.com…

…and decided that any future children of mine have a mighty good chance of looking like this every Christmas.

The company responsible for the photo is called Locked Illusions and you can see their site here. It’s run by Brittany & Benjamin Bentine and they specialise in children & family photography.

Their finished photographs have a gorgeous gothic/fantasy/rockabilly/steampunk vibe and while I understand that some people might expect something more traditional when photographing children, I think it’s genius. The technical knowledge behind the images is obvious – the lighting, the composition, the locations – and the makeup and costumes are really beautiful. Everything works perfectly together to create each scene.

This is possibly the most adorable thing I’ve seen.

He’s wearing a suit, she’s wearing a tiara and playing a tiny guitar. How can you not love this?!
