This Halloween Monster Bash was so much fun to plan. The fun Googly Eyed Monster Halloween Invitation by Pear Tree Greetings and printable designs from Cupcake With Character were the inspiration behind this shoot. I incorporated red, purple, black and orange throughout the table with chevron accents. I wanted to make it kid-friendly, yet keep the Halloween vibe, so I purchased two black Halloween trees from Michaels. I loved them and knew they would be the perfect “spooky” addition to the dessert table. I’m all about the sparkle, so I thought it would be fun to add that element to the table with glitter accents, including custom-designed red and purple sparkle wooden utensils with monster googly eyes. Thinking of having your own monster bash?

When our customer, Lindsey, decided to take a photo of her son in his new Halloween costume, she was a little worried about getting him to cooperate. “I didn’t think that my son would actually keep the costume on long enough for me to take this photo.” But using a little mom-ingenuity, she came up with a great idea. “The wagon was a distraction to get him to focus on something else other the big ears, fuzzy feet and long tail. The wagon is a new toy for him (an awesome hand-me-down from his two cousins in Seattle, WA) and since he hasn’t quite figured out how to use it as a walker yet, he likes climbing into and sitting in it.” Great photo? Check.
Next on the list was finding Halloween card ideas. Lindsey says, “I was looking at several websites for a photo card that was modern, clean and simple – yet fun and really highlighted the photo – and Pear Tree Greetings was the only site that had options that worked for what I was looking for.” Excellent choice, Lindsey with our Striped Halloween Greeting – Halloween Photo Card. And we love that your photo is black and white, which makes the card the perfect Halloween-y combination of black and orange.
You may not have thought about sending out Halloween photo cards, but as Lindsey will tell you, “it’s a fun way to send family members a recent photo and certainly is a nice memento to have that shows my son’s growth over his first year. Thanksgiving and Christmas cards are next!”
Over the years, we have learned a few things about taking a photo for our annual Halloween photo cards. First, the Halloween photography session at our home is short, since the fun factor never lasts as long as we hope. We think it’s best to take this photo (1) after the kids have napped/rested, (2) earlier in the day rather than later and (3) in the first few minutes after they get into their costumes. Of course it helps tremendously if they love their costumes, and that nothing is poking or scratching or binding. We also try not to put them in their costumes too often before this day, so as not to wear out the excitement. It’s probably a 2-person (minimum) job – one person to entertain and the other to point and click.
The kids know that if all goes well, after the photo we will stage a dry run for Halloween, complete with them knocking on our door for practice. They are rewarded with a sample of what’s in store on Halloween night. Sometimes that is the best opportunity for a great photo.
Finally, and perhaps the most important Halloween Photography tip of all, we recommend that parents are not cranky. A glass of wine or a piece of good quality chocolate works wonders. I speak from experience.
