A baby definitely breathes new life into holidays….especially into the ones I never really made a big deal of, like Halloween and Valentines Day. Now…it’s worthy of finding a holiday spirit in exchange for the cutest photos, right?!?
I found a wool heart garland at Target a few weeks ago and knew exactly what I wanted to do with it. I sent a text to my neighbor Lindsey, who is also a photographer and asked if she wanted to photo swap. I’ve talked about this before, but moms need to be in more photos with their kids [and yes, dads too!]. Even as a photographer- I really don’t have that many photos of Ezra and I together. So, back to the garland….I was inspired to plan a super low key…mini photoshoot.
You don’t have to plan for a long-drawn out session. Ezra could only handle about 20 minutes right about now, before getting distracted and just over-it. So, the goal was 10 minutes, a plain white wall, a fun garland and me and my boy. Easy! I’m so thankful that I took the bit of time to plan this out and see it through….I hope this encourages a few mommas to do the same. It doesn’t take much….just a little vision and follow through!
Thanks again Lindsey…I love these photos with all my heart. xo
//// And a favorite that I took of Lindsey and little E.
