Thompson Homonnay on Commercial Portrait Photography and Working with Kids

We have a lot of talent at Poppy Creative Agency, but Ashley Thompson and Ana Homonnay, who make up the Thompson Homonnay photography duo, are our resident portrait photographers. As if our job wasn’t fun enough, Ashley and Ana work primarily with kids – as a result, their portrait photography is fun and lighthearted, colorful and energetic. We asked Thompson Homonnay to tell us what makes their job (and their photos) oh-so-enjoyable. Here’s what they told us…

“We love shooting portraits of kids and teens. Their authenticity, body language and way of interacting with the camera is crucial to our style. The vibe we create on set is fun and organic, and we rely on music and silliness to keep the kids engaged throughout the shoot. The backgrounds we choose are important to our portrait photography because they work as a sort of second character and have to play off our subjects. As photographers, portraiture is important to us because we’re able to draw out and show off the different personalities of all the awesome kids and teens we photograph.” – Ashley and Ana
