I have had this little project in mind for a while now - today we shot it.
It keeps raining and isnt likely to dry anytime this week. We parked the car outside and made work of our west facing garage. Door up.. and a box of costumes.
These images are going above the little desk in Lochies room. Being a child's desk it is low.. leaving lots of wall space.. the desk holds his dvd player and the dvd holder. He has a bean bag and a lil chill out zone.. so i wanted the images above it to support the idea of characters and role play... without being a kids character poster! All I did was crop the image so that it was a lil dramatic than a standard full photo.
A while back I made him an alphabet poster with each letter in different shades of blue (with green and red letters to spell out Love Lochie). It is in a grey frame - so we are reflecting that onto the opposite wall.. with grey frames.. and black and white images. I bought 3 shades of cardboard to matt the frames with.
This took 20 mins and I think i shot about 100 photos. Easy Peasy. No fussy editing.. just our standard black and whites :)
Lochie helped me plan the costumes and we lined them up, ready for a fast change out :)
He is soooooo cute. I adore him.. can you tell? I am thinking that at least one of these needs to be bigger ;) Please note.. you can click to see it larger and it may take a lil longer than normal to load. :)
this was my fav outfit... Glasses from maccas, devil cape was part of a set for a couple of dollrs and the hat is a set from Ikea.. cheap and ohhhhhh so funny. He rocked it.. reminded me of those 70s motorbike riders who jumped buses..LOL
better go.. this wonder kid will be in and jumping on me in just a few short hours :)
