I had a shoot planned that had a theme of "under the sea" recently and like most creative experiences things can change last minute and that client went with another look. I had all of these adorable items already lined up so I thought...why not do a super cute summer shoot and let the kids enjoy themselves. I have been wanting to do a shoot like this for a long time and all the pieces involved were just too perfect to NOT be taken at splash park.
When styling the clothing I wanted the patterns and colors to be what kids would love. For props...a flamingo float was a must, music, a beach ball...and what my kids love most about summer...POPSICLES.
I think too often we see fashionable kids clothes and try to keep them clean or never have them wear them because we are scared they will get ruined. Well...this shoot is the opposite. Get in the water, eat a popsicle, get dirty and HAVE FUN (and be crazy adorable while doing it). Let's do this summer we love you.
