This past week the kids and I were given the opportunity to participate in a real life photo/video shoot! I'm talking, rented location, legit video/photo people, stylists, hair and make up and food!
The idea behind our part was a "real life" mom practicing yoga with her children (furry one too!) Obviously they did not want very many quiet or zen shots if they wanted my minis involved! haha
We had such a great time! The first question was, "what to do with Little Man's hair?" We tried a "mini man bun" which started to come out because... he never sits still! <3 In the end we just let it do its thing, of course I loved that. Mini Me got some curls and a super fun braid and I actually had my hair and make up done! I think the last time that happened was our wedding ten years ago!
Our first "scene" was outside on this gorgeous deck space. We "flowed," we fell, we laughed, we went upside-down, we stretched and had so much fun.
The next "scene" was inside with an "active play" idea. Little Man was supposed to play with blocks, but he is two and had other ideas. So if you can catch the bowl of popcorn behind the blocks you win ten points.
We also did a mommy solo practice set to give the kids a break. I was actually able to zone out and do my own thing! Which means, I have no idea if they got what they needed... oops
All in all it was a super fun experience and I cannot wait to see the finished project. If it is good then I will share it with you... ha!
Big props to those real models out there... I was exhausted at the end of the day!!!
