When Glory told me her plan for Alejandro’s sixth birthday session, I was a little bit hesitant. I have never photographed a little boy while in costume for his birthday before. But, I couldn’t have been happier with the results! I now kind of wish that all of my clients would do something like this! I always encourage my clients to bring a favorite toy or lovie to include in birthday session, but bringing a costume was a brilliant idea.
The lure of dressing in the costume really kept her six year old son stay engaged throughout the (boring) family portion of the session, and then when it came time to don his costume & become Spider-Man… it really gave him a chance to let his personality & interests shine. The shoot took on a life of it’s own! Alejandro was thrilled to play Spider-Man and even had a bunch of posing ideas of his own. And then when Dad busted out his Iron Man costume. I just about died. These two together, well it couldn’t have been any cuter!!
I think that Glory might have a hard time topping this idea for Alejandro’s 7th birthday session next year! Click this link to see his 5th birthday & family session in the desert last year.
