These ‘Wild Ones’ celebrated their first birthday with a themed photo shoot a couple of weeks ago. Their Mom and Aunt put a huge amount of effort into creating their ‘Where the Wild Things Are’ costumes for their first birthday shoot. The boys didn’t look very impressed initially, I was however thrilled with the beautiful costumes and props we had to work with!!!
Winter shoots have their pros and cons. It’s generally fine to shoot at 10am in winter, the sun is lower making for good lighting, the problem is the temperature in the shade. The twins weren’t too phased because they had been dressed appropriately, the grown ups however had to stay in the sun to keep warm.
I love it when clients have creative ideas for their shoots, Mom gave me a brief for the twin’s birthday shoot and we were able to execute it perfectly.
The little monsters were the perfect models throughout the shoot, luckily for me they weren’t quite walking, so keeping them in one spot wasn’t tricky. Give them a couple more weeks and it’ll be an entirely different story.
Aren’t they just adorable?
Cake was dished out once we’d got all the portraits done and then the real fun happened.
Once the cakes were well and truly smashed, the twins called time on the shoot and headed home.
