Family Portraits with a Twist

Brilliant! Here is a unique take on family portraits by an Italian photographer, Camilla Catrambone. Instead of snapping photos of individual family members, she created a portrait of each loved one through a selection of their signature possessions that are characteristic to them. How uniquely genius and distinctive, wouldn’t you say?

What would you have on your photo? (On mine, among other things, there would probably be a piece of super stinky cheese, my old teddy that I got from my dad when I was little, a lipstick, and probably some coffee).

P.S: Plus, Skype family reunions and this awesome family photo:)

How clever of her. I can truly picture those people after their objects. I would say that my photo would be a collection of spoons, forks, tea towels, hair clips and my dear apron that I cook in every single day. Cheers, Grace.

What a cool concept! Hmm, I would have some red lipstick, a great bright shade of nail polish, a favorite dress, and my iPhone and camera to start!

Lovely! My portrait would have my camera, my kindle and the earrings I wear everyday!

That's so much more telling than a grimace and stiff pose!

Wishing you a wonderful day sweetie!

These images are so beautiful and so telling of the person!

I am always so curious what other ladies have in their purses, and shot like this, I think would be pretty awesome!
