Super Baby!! {DIY Children Photography}

Fighting crime, all before bedtime!

So if you haven't figured out by now, I love being creative. Go figure.
I started thinking about David's 6 month photo shoot {we love to do this ourselves; we can't fathom spending money on something that we can create, have fun with and make memories}...then it hit a falling piano...SUPER BABY!!

With the release of The Avengers {and my handsome and I totally watching every superhero movie available via Netflix} it was an obvious choice. Given that I'm also an artist and grew up in a family of illustrators, I just HAD to do it. So, I set the stage...

 I love his room! Big enough to create this DIY photo booth :)

 You can do this too! Here's how:

1.) Gather some fun items for baby, like sunglasses, costumes, props etc.
2.) Doodle on some Kraft paper or hang some fabric in the background
3.) Throw down a plush blanket...wala, magic!
Tip: Use natural light bulbs in the lamps. Makes the photos much clearer.
Also, put on some cool tunes...we had some Christian jazz playing :)

And here's what happened!! :

I am SO in love with these photos {oh yeah, and the boy too.}

  Who is YOUR favorite superhero?
