Santa, please don’t wake the baby…

Santa, please don't wake the baby...

I’m sure I’ve mentioned this before, but one of my favorite things to do with “junk” is to create funky photo-shoot settings. I like to take things with a vintage feel or something out of the ordinary and throw it together in some mismatched fashion, just for the fun of it. It follows one of my “Golden Rules” always reuse, repurpose, recycle!

For this photo-shoot we took a vintage bed frame to a field (used an air mattress to save on some of the heavy lifting) and used layers of creams, tans and shades of white bedding and pillows. We added an aged toy baby bed, since this was a newborn session and added a Christmas wreath, milk and cookies, and a note to Santa, also subtlety announcing the holiday season.

The Sullivan’s are always awesome to work with, they just show up and let me do my thing. This quote from “Alice in Wonderland” always makes me think if this is what my clients think of my ideas… The Mad Hatter: “Have I (has she) gone mad?” Alice: “I’m afraid so. You’re entirely bonkers. But, I’ll tell you a secret. All the best people are.” Hopefully, they get me, lol!

Wishing you a very vintage Christmas!
