Halloween Inspiration Photo Session

Who says Halloween pictures need to be taken on your front porch with a pumpkin? Or with bales of hay at a Pumpkin patch? Or with a backdrop at the local mall?

Not me.

I took four adorable munchkins out for a walk amongst the trees and down to the water's edge. My princesses and pirate were right at home.

A few weeks ago I saw a flyer for JCPenney advertising Disney costumes. I knew that I wanted to gather a bunch of kids & these costumes...and get out and about. Three moms jumped at the chance!!

So, on a muggy South Florida morning we flitted about in a leafy forest, walked down a tree lined path, stood our ground on a distant shore, then gathered coconuts and even considered diving in the cool water.

As I was photographing that morning, I wondered how much fun it would be to have a dress up character!! I actually believed Tinkerbell was sitting there trying to get her lantern home to open up and Jake the Pirate would burst into the Aw Coconuts song.

When my youngest was 3, she wouldn't take her Tinkerbell costume off for weeks. I gave in and we went to Target, the grocery store and finally the park. She had THE best time running around being Tink. (And yes...I did take pictures. ;) After Halloween consider letting the kids go out and about in costume. It's fun...and what else are you going to do with those costumes after Halloween????

Enjoy and have a Happy Halloween!
