Hoffine claims his kids are always proud to be featured in his work.

And even if the children in his shots aren’t his own, as seen here with his sister’s newborn, they still do an amazing job.

Hoffine makes sure his children know the situations aren’t real and that they aren’t exposed to any danger.

In fact, he describes a photo shoot as such… “They loved it. It was like a giant game of dress-up for them.”

“They also knew we were making a scary picture, and loved the idea of scaring the audience as much as I did,” said Hoffine.

Still, his work extends well beyond his brood.
