Kids in Pumpkins ~ Fall Photo Idea

Pumpkin Pic @ 6 weeks old.

Every Fall I take the kids out for a mini photo shoot.  I’m the photographer and my kids are . . . well, when they were smaller, let’s just say that they were my guinea pigs.  And pumpkins were the props (a’hem, costumes).  Lucky for them, they are too big to fit into a pumpkin now.

If you have little ones, try this fun Fall Pumpkin Photo Idea!  Just hollow out a large pumpkin and line it with  Press & Seal.  I found stapling it held the longest.

If your kids are too big to fit inside the pumpkin (as in above picture), hollow it out and remove the bottom and back as needed.

Do you have any fall photo traditions?  
P.S. I’d love to see your photos if you try this!  Email me here.
