Halloween is my most favorite time of the year! I love the idea of getting to be anything and anyone that you can dream up. This year my little (ok, not so little anymore) guy wanted to be Harry Potter. But not just Harry Potter, Harry Potter if he were in Slytherin house. You see, this kid of mine is all about the villains. So we go the wand, the glasses, and the Slytherin uniform.
After getting to dress up in fun costumes, my next favorite part of Halloween is getting to take my kid's picture in said costume. There is a guy that lives a few blocks over creates the most awesome Halloween display. He hand ties these spider webs all around his house and over the sidewalk in front of his house. We have been taking Halloween photos over here for the last few years. It is the perfect backdrop for this kind of photo session.
I love that Brody likes to get into character. It really makes for great photos.
These Haloween photo session are so great. I love that I get a chance to document this moment in time, and show off the costume that he chose this year. I feel like his costume choices always tend to reflect his current obsession at the time. When I look back, I will know this was the year he discovered and really got into the Harry Potter books and movies.
After I posted my favorite photo from this session of my kiddo on facebook, I got a text froma friend that said he daughter was dying to get some cool wizard photos too! So we met the next day over at the neighborhood spider webs and did a fun Halloween photo session!
I love that I am able to make some wizard dreams come true just spending a little bit of time with my camera and photoshop.
I guess that sometimes you don't need a wand to make magic!
I wish you a safe and happy Halloween from Stacey Louise Photography!
