Yesterday I took the boys out for a Harry Potter photo shoot. They decided a long time ago to be Harry and Ron for Halloween this year, which was basically what I've been waiting for since they were born. And we've been planning this photo shoot for a while too. We were all excited about it.
Two things went wrong...1) Ethan broke his wand 5 minutes in. I had to call Casey to bring us another one. Thank goodness we were in the neighborhood. And 2) Logan's tummy hurt so he didn't feel good. It turned out to be nothing more than hunger (thank GOODness).
They were so excited about the dueling part. And they flipped over the "magic" I added in Photoshop. Honestly, I'm so glad they're pleased, because this type of photoshopping is not something I'm very good at!
I seriously love their faces in this one! Both expressions. I think they're threatening me with "petrificus totalis."
Ethan makes the sweetest Harry Potter. We are replacing his wand, by the way. (This time.)
And Logan was really such a trooper. He wanted to do the photos so badly, but his tummy was bothering him a lot. You can tell by his smile...but he did it, sweet boy.
Logan liked the sitting shots because he felt better. He kept asking to sit down, so we did several like that.
I didn't plan on adding magic to this photo of Ethan, but he had his hand like that (for some unknown reason) and I thought it looked like something magical should go there.
They kept asking me if I could do a Patronus in Photoshop. I was less than confident about it, but I did it. Sort of. Don't judge! Again, they were thrilled...and that's what I was going for!
I asked them both what animal they wanted for their Patronus and they both chose a dog. No surprise there.
A few more dueling photos...because this really was their favorite part.
Ron and Harry...just discussing things. Maybe wondering where Hermione went? (Check the library, guys.)
And there they go...marching off to the Forbidden Forest.
