In the age of Instagram, we're seeing a lot more of our friends' and families' intimate moments than ever before. Sometimes a little too much. I once knew a guy who would send selfies from the toilet. But one thing I never expected to see if a photoshoot commemorating... a breakup. Having been through a few breakups in my time, I can say there are few periods of my life I less want to be photographed than when I am puffy-eyed, snot-nosed, haven't slept more than a couple hours in a week, have been crying non-stop, and have ignored all rules of hygiene or eating healthy. It's not a pretty time in anyone's life nor is it one most people want to put on display. But these people are... not most people. They did a photoshoot to announce they were splitting up. The results are predictable hilarious. Seriously, who does this? Please don't let this become a trend.
Photoshoots with someone you love are always nice. Think about engagement shoots, weddings, baby showers... They're a great way to showcase budding romance, your love for your family, a way to remember your pet, and a host of other reasons that make you feel soft and mushy inside.
Then there's this.
You know that there's no way the internet is going to stay quiet after someone posts pictures of a breakup photoshoot.
People were confused.
After the initial shock, the creative commentary started rolling in.
While normally I would bash an idea as absurd as this, I'm also a photographer and have very reasonable rates, so please feel free to book your breakup photoshoot with me at your earliest convenience.
