When you are out on a summers evening and you see several limos drive past you can bet it is that time of year that has grown so big in the UK in the last few years – Prom night.
Prom nights are huge now, it makes me feel quite old that we did not have them in my day.
A few months ago I received a call from a really lovely client who I have worked for in the past asking me if I could cover the preparations of her daughter Charlottes prom night.
Having photographed all the arrivals at a prom night many years ago, it was nice to photograph the preparations and see what a special event this has become in a parents and daughter/son’s life. Almost like a mini wedding.
Charlotte’s friend also was getting ready at the house. Their boyfriends arrived with corsage gifts for the girls. Charlotte wore earrings bought by her father. The dresses, shoes and bags where beautiful. Charlotte’s mum really went to lots of effort to make everything perfect. Catherine hired a make up artist (a best friend of mine) photographer(me) and driver (Charlotte’s dad’s driver) to take them to the prom in Ascot as well as putting on lots of nibbles in the garden.
The girls looked stunning and I was really pleased when I received a thank you message asking me back to photograph Charlotte’s sisters prom night in two years time. 🙂
