5 Cool ideas for photos with your kids
1. Cow-boy dress up
Ever seen those westerns?
You know the ones with the cow-boys, the saloons & the random dust that seems to be blowing everywhere.
Here’s your chance to grab your kids whatever the age, and dress up. You’ll get to rock those 80s heeled boots, pretend you’re a gun-slinger in a western and get your kids laughing.
What you could do is set-up your living room to be western themed. Grab some hay, chuck it on the floor, get some wooden chairs from the attic, paint some beer bottles to be moonshine and go nuts!
2. Become a Hero
We can’t take the credit for this one unfortunately! We got the idea from one of our clients who was keen to dress her son as Spiderman for a recent portrait.
Now you’re thinking which one you should choose…
Well there’s a huge choice from the MCU universe. If you’re feeling easy, get some green face paint, rip some sleeves off some old shirts, some purple pants and bam you’ve got a mini-hulk on your hands. Not only will your kids thank you for this, but you’ll get to reenact your favourite marvel scenes.
Alternatively, you could go all the way and buy a crazy talking iron-man headpiece for the kids with a voice-changer and maybe a suit to go with it. In fact, Argos have a pretty nifty suit you could grab for the kiddies.
3. All Barbie Doll’d Up!
This one is for the mummy and daughter mix. This is the perfect opportunity to rock blonde highlights, stilletos and outrageously pink sunglasses and match with the little girlies for some mother and daughter bonding time. To make this even cooler, we suggest grabbing a doll house, repainting a room pink and maybe throwing in some fancy tea-cups in the mix.
Now we bet you’re thinking, well dad really wants a go!
We get it! You can officially dress up dad as a ken doll to participate. Simply get some suave fitted clothes & some blonde dye and he should be good to go.
4. Take them to Lake District
Lake district is known for is lush greenery & cottage views. Lake District is well known for being a world heritage site and it’s breath taking valleys. Just imagine, you’ll be able to show your children the best views in town, quite literally meanwhile getting those breath-taking views. You’ll also be able take a cosy boat-ride from Coniston Village and peer out the gentle lake.
5. 50’s Dress Up
Dressing like the 50s involves quite a few things, like creaseless dress shirts and flowery dresses. You can get all the family involved in this fun idea, from dad dressing like a 50s businessmen with the classic fedora, grey overcoat and white shirt to the little boys with greasy slick back pomenade styled hair.
Loaction Location Location…
Well there’s several potential options here, you could redocorate the house with 50s styled furniture, plenty of red checkered cloths, classic wooden tables and chairs, old radios, pink cabinets – the whole shabang. If you’re feeling that’s a bit too much, there’s several places you could actually visit for the real 50s feeling. The Sketch is a retro 50s style resturant, draped with perfectly pink furniture in the heart of central London, Mayfair.
Nola, although not a 50s styled bar we feel it certainly needs a cheeky little mention, especially for the grown-ups. Nola is a 30s styled cocktail bar situated in Bethnal Green with jazzy vibes to make your photoshoot that little bit more authentic.
