Tattooed Mom and Son

Spread the love

This is my first shoot for a series I dreamed up called Parent and Child Intimacy.  I was super lucky to find this amazing tattooed mom and son pair in Bogota, Colombia.  The concept is simple: shoot a mother or father playing in an intimate bedroom setting with their young child.  Carolina and he five year old son Andrés were absolutely perfect.  Location courtesy of Vintage Home Bogota.
