Hubby's family is wanting to hire me to do some portraits of his Grandma, she's getting up in years and there's no good photographs of her from the past few years. I'm just having a hard time coming up with some decent poses or "props" more or less that's fitting for a lady in her 80's. (Its gonna be a studio setting btw.)
We've talked about doing a bit of a country theme for one set as she's very country; born and raised on a farm, raised her own family on a farm etc. So we were thinking an old antique looking chair, one of those old fashioned milk jugs, her gardening hat, some spring flowers perhaps?
And I guess some sort of more formal portrait and head shot. Its just hard to come up with things since she is getting up in years, you can't really pose her any which way and still have her be comfortable and make it look natural. Anyone got any ideas for a set I can use? Or done any sort of senior citizen portraits? As far as I know it will only be grandma in the photo, unless the kids decide they want a group shot with their mom.
So I'd be most grateful if those of you who have an ideas gimme some or have done portraits of seniors show me examples. I'm just drawing a blank and googling does really come up with much either, everything is targeted towards younger people nowadays.
