3Dad Reenacts His Wedding Photos with His Daughter in Memory of His Late Wife
In 2011, Ben Nunery lost his 31-year-old wife Ali to lung cancer. They had been married for almost five years and had a one-year-old daughter together.
A few months ago, Ben realized that he needed to move out of the home he had shared with his wife. In fact, the two purchased the home just one day before their wedding, and since the home was empty the couple decided to have their wedding portraits taken inside the home. With the natural light coming through the large paned windows and illuminating vintage hard wood floors and colonial style French molding, the photos were gorgeous.
Before letting the home go, and with the house empty once again, Ben decided to recreate the photos that are now so precious to him with his new life partner – his 3-year-old little girl, Olivia.
4Old Married Couple Reenacts Up in a Photoshoot
Sixty-one years is definitely a long time to be married. To celebrate their diamond anniversary plus one, the grandkids of Donald and Dorothy Lutz staged an adorable photoshoot inspired by the opening scene of the world's saddest/most uplifting movie, Up.

They have never seen the movie Up, but they were asked to do the shoot by their grandson's wife, Lauren Wells, and her photography partner, Cambria Grace, who had a bundle of leftover balloons from a photoshoot.
With props like a bowtie and a picnic basket, the couple posed on the Old Northern Bridge in Boston. The adorable images — intended as an anniversary gift — quickly went viral. In true grandparent fashion, they have asked for all of the Internet comments to be printed out so they can send them to friends who don't have computers.

For the girl's fifth birthday in May 2013, Moore had her play dress-up in a series of photos emulating five influential female historical figures, Amelia Earhart, Coco Chanel, Susan B. Anthony, Helen Keller, and Jane Goodall. There's not a single fairytale princess among them.
The idea behind the “NOT just a girl” photo album struck Moore after she tried to find inspiration to commemorate her daughter's birthday. Moore, a wedding and lifestyle photographer, completed the photo shoot in three days, with each portrait session taking only about 15 minutes.

10Ducati Dealership Recreates a Sexy Photoshoot with Male Mechanics
A Ducati dealership in Portland has attracted attention online by posting a new ad campaign highlighting the absurd nature of "sexy" motor shoots.
The pictures were a recreation of their original ad campaign featuring a standard female model format, complete with leather jacket, sexy poses, and heels.
In "Asphalt and Rubber," motorcycle blogger Jensen Beeler claims that the publication "passed on running the photos" from the original campaign until "something interesting happened" when the dealer "did a follow-up shoot, this time with men from around the shop."
The photos have struck a chord online, with some viewers finding them hilarious and some finding deeper meaning about the objectification of women in motor sports. At the very least, it shows originality and a good sense of humor from the dealership.
