Studio mini sessions are done on your choice of either backdrop. If we have time, you can have photos with both, but if you know you’re going to want both backgrounds, it’s best to book two sessions.
Please arrive already dressed in your costumes for your mini session. I have witch hats, shawls, fairy wings and pirate hats and accessories you can add to your costumes.
If you’re booking a Halloween Fantasy session (Wizards & Witches or Enchanted Tea Party) we will plan the outfits ahead of time either by phone or email.
On the day of the shoot, we’ll get the magical shot first and then you can either stay in your outfits or change into regular clothes for your fun candid family photos!
After the session, your favourite photo will be turned into a magical scene!
The very first fantasy image I ever did was of my son as a wizard on Halloween. He was in to Harry Potter at the time and wanted to have a lightening bolt coming out of his magic wand!
I happened to have a new portable light to experiment with, and so we went into the backyard and took some photos at dusk!
They turned out really well so I added a lightening bolt in Photoshop to his favourite one. The photo was a hit with all his friends and family! My other son wanted a magical photo too, so I did one for him next.
I had so much fun with these photos that I made a huge paper mache cauldron. It end up taking way longer than I thought and costing an arm and a leg in supplies at Michaels! But once I had it, I wanted to share it with other kids who might love these magical photos!
And the rest, as they say, is history!
Here is a photo of me and my boys, and their pet rats! Don’t worry, no animals were harmed in the making of this photo! 😉
