Picture day in our family is a dreaded event. It's really the one day that I openly admit to bribing my children. Given that we only do this a couple times a year, I'm convinced that it isn't doing too much damage. If I can get these results every year, then I will continue using this strategy.
I'd like to publicly thank my husband for being my assistant on this shoot.
I couldn't have done it without him.
(gonna crop shoes out later, I think)
Love it when you get the feeling that you totally nailed a shot. That's how I felt after this one but it's probably cuz these are my babes and I'm totally biased.
We put on the invitations to come as your favorite Superhero. Isn't she adorable?
I made a skyline from a table cloth, wrapping paper, construction paper and spray adhesive. The day of the party, I taped bad guys (Magneto, Doc Oc, Catwoman, etc.) to the city and we played "Put the Bad Guy In Jail." Just a spoof on Pin the Tail On the Donkey.
We opened presents.
And modeled presents.
Then we had dessert.
The kids loved the Kryptonite Cupcakes.
Here's my little girl in her brother's costume. It was too big on him and gigantic on her.
