Cherubs: Then and Now
As I was photographing the two little ones who are the subject of today’s post, they reminded me of this painting by Raphael Sanzio, High Renaissance Painter, 1483 – 1520.
These are two very famous cherubs – from Raphael’s Sistine Madonna painting. The background and the simplicity of the image draw the viewer into the warmth and delight of their diminutive world.
I used this style as the inspiration for my session with the little ones below. Hope you enjoy the images!
