 My little red-haired witch.  She is a good witch and not a bad witch...most of the time. 

My little red-haired witch.  She is a good witch and not a bad witch...most of the time. 

Many of you know that I have 3 kids and they keep me pretty busy.  They are also my muses and the first ones I go to when I have a crazy idea.  Poor things!  LOL! 

So Halloween is no exception.  I had this idea to setup a little witch's cauldron scene in the backyard and let my youngest pretend with her costume on.  After everything was setup she decided that she knew better and stopped listening to her 'director'.  So with most things, I just rolled with it.  She pretended to read "spells" from her book and stir her cauldron.  I was reduced to documenting her playtime and I was perfectly ok with it. She believed in what she was doing which made her much more believable as this little red haired witch.  

Sometimes letting go and just stepping back is when all the magic happens. 

Children's Sessions like this can be so much fun.  It really allows the kid to have fun and I can step back and just document them doing what they love to do.  It changes the dynamics of a typical photo shoot. She loves to look at herself in pictures and will tell me all about what she was doing.  So it's something that we can look back on for years to come and I truly cherish these.
