Taniza - Afro Style Kids Wear

After shooting couple and landscape for a while, it feels refreshing to get an offer to shoot kids wear product. Taniza is a new Swedish-African kids wear company based in Stockholm. I have not had kids or fashion in my portfolio so I did not think twice when offered the job.

The product are colorful and fun. Mostly for kids from two to eight years old. Taniza products are designed and made by hand in Africa. All products are unique.

Not only sweater, Taniza also make bags. We photograph three kind of bags. Two bags are designed for parents. The smaller comes with square shape and decorated with traditional patterns. The bigger one are strong and have large storage.While the other bags are school backpacks.

First time working with kids, I still to find better way to communicate with them. There are good and bad news. The bad news is that even though 95% of the Swedish people speak good English, these kids (younger than 10 years old) have not learn much English. I know a bit of Swedish but not enough to communicate with them. I need to talk to them with gesture and all that. The parents did a great job helping me with this. The good news is that we don't really need to tell them what to do. Let them run around or sit and play, while we follow them and shoot.

It is a really interesting experience and I would like to do it again.
