Well this was fun! Difficult but fun.
Here we have Claudia from The Vampire Chronicles. Even though shes really only in one book, I think her presence is felt for a majority of the series. Certainly with Louis who never really got over her death. Both times! lol
I always felt the key to Claudia was seeing the adult under all the curls and ribbons. I really wanted to capture her as a mature, intelligent person. And a tad bitter.
Reference picture came from the AW12 collection from childswear brand Pale Cloud. www.pale-cloud.com/index.php
. Amazingly sophisicated fashion photography for childswear. Nothing cutesy about this brand, so it was perfectly Claudia.
Hope you like!
