Being that my birthday falls nearly on Halloween, I have grown up celebrating the day with a big birthday blowout/ Halloween Party. This year we are having a black and white ghouls and glam party and along with our black and white food, drinks, decor, and favors, I wanted to decorate the walls with some wicked looking imagery. So we took the girls out to the sticks, literally because the area had been burnt badly, and did some photos. I tried to emulate the vintage look, ever notice how no one seemed to smile or show facial expression in old photos? Maybe it’s just me!
Doing this today with kids is HARD, especially yours because A: they aren’t going to listen to mom and dad and B: they’ve been trained to “SMILE”. You would think they would be good at pouting and not smiling, but I guess at 20months old and 5 yrs you can’t expect them to do anything you actually want them to. Brooke however did better than I expected! She has several different “faces” she likes to do when the camera comes out, she calls this here her “mad/angry or sassy” look and I’d have to agree on the mad/angry! Grace on the other hand was more interested in all the burnt things (a hammer amongst other things) and this cool tree tunnel that she darted off to (and fell on the way back) hence the leaves all over her.
So after a whopping 10 mins the kids were DONE with photos, Grace had thrown herself on the the nice black burnt ground because Brooke wanted to hold her hand and have her stand beside her “like I’m doing” (oh yes in her pretty white top and skirt). And Brooke was upset that Grace was “ruining” the photos! kids love em!!!!… well these were my favorites, some outtakes too.
Brookes spooktacular look!
