Every fall and spring, Ella and Henry showcases their new kids fashions for the season during a Fashion Show at the store in New Canaan. This is also when I get to take super quick fashion portraits on the kids.
It's been a very busy weekend here at N. Lalor Photography. One of the events I look forward to every year is the Fall Fashion Show at the Ella & Henry kids clothing store in New Canaan. I have the privilege of taking the runway photos, and also Studio shots of all the outfits (which I set up for in the basement next to the changing areas.. yes, it's as glamorous as it sounds).
I love partnering with local businesses to bring a special events to our clients.. which is why Ella & Henry children's clothing store in New Canaan and I are doing a Mother's Day photo session event at the store, on Sunday May 14th.
Ella & Henry's Spring 2017 fashion show was a wonderful showcase of latest kids and tween fashion trends, including outfits from Steiff, bellybutton, Stella M'Lia, and Papermoon, and beautiful flower crowns by BOW&ROSE. I have the distinct pleasure of photographing the fashion show, but I also set up a mini-studio downstairs and take fashion portraits of the kids before and after the big event.
Every season, Ella & Henry children's clothing store in New Canaan imports all the best quality and most stylish kids clothes from Europe. These styles are revealed during the semi-annual fashion show. So, I take a few minutes before and after the show to capture portraits that really show off the outfits and accessories (seriously, check out those awesome headbands).
None of these kids are professional models, but they all did such a fantastic job walking the runway and posing for photographs! And some of these images will be decorating the walls of the store next month, so definitely stop by to see them in person. The clothes are from several companies: Steiff, Bellybutton, Paper Moon, and a local favorite Stella M'Lia, which are all such fantastic brands.
Oh, and if you've been thinking about buying outfits for a family photo session or a photoshoot of your child, you can visit Ella & Henry (137 Elm. Street in New Canaan) to get personal styling help for the session. They know my methods for styling my models and what looks great on camera.. and that is such an incredible help for parents.
Part of the experience at Ella & Henry's Spring Fashion Show was my little photo studio setup for the kids. Each child got to experience what it's like to be a photography model before they walked on the runway at the fashion show.. and since everyone had three beautiful outfits to wear, we took a few minutes right after the show to photograph some of the children again. Every set of portraits took just a few minutes and we got so many great shots and expressions. This is one of the reasons I LOVE working with children - they are always themselves.
Ella & Henry's Kids Spring Fashion Show was a huge hit. We had ten young models, wearing three gorgeous outfits each, and walking down the runway while everyone clapped and cheered. The kids were treated to a personalized fitting the week before the show and most outfits included beautiful hair accessories and Steiff toys (I personally love the classic black bow headband Avery wore). We also took some quick fashion portraits before and after the show to really capture the kids' personalities and I'll be sharing those photos next week, but for now, you can enjoy all the stylish outfits from the runway..
Also, I made a video with all the awesome fashion show images!
