HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!! Today is the day! My favorite day of the year!
Well… lets be honest… we’ve been celebrating the entire month of October. Today is the day we have been building up to all month long. It is the last hurrah as we Trick or Treat with friends tonight. We’ve spent the month decorating the house, doing Halloween crafts, visiting multiple pumpkin patches, buying ALL of the pumpkins we can find, and dressing up any chance we could. It always goes by way too quickly and never enough time to fit in all the Halloween stuff we want to do. This year was Nixon’s year to pick our family costumes. We weren’t really sure which way he would go and for a while there it was definitely looking like Ninja Turtle or Power Ranger family. But in the end he picked Trolls and we had a blast putting together costumes. Kids loved the look of the costumes but FULL DISCLOSURE… they HATED the wigs. Can you blame them?
So tonight on Halloween Eve (actually it is already Halloween since it is 1am) as I prep this blog post I would like to fully apologize for the RIDICULOUS photoshop/composite work you are about to see!!! My kids wanted full on silly Troll portraits and that is what they are getting. Their special requests included being picked up by King Gristle and sitting in Lady Glitter Sparkles hair just like in the movie. I did the best I could and the giggles I will receive from them in the morning is well worth the hours it took me to create all these images for them.
Enjoy our Halloween portraits below! I hope you enjoy your day as much as we will!
Until next year…. HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!!!
