I have a confession to make. Local photographer does a hilarious thing with family photos!

Alright. I have to share something with you that I’ve started randomly asking my families to let me do.

It’s something that is compleatly silly, there is no reason for it. It just simply brings me joy and I’m really loving this little project.

Like really, every time I do one of these portraits it makes me laugh AND makes my clients laugh too.

So what am I doing exactley that is putting a guaranteed smile on your face?

Its super simple… I’m switching the heads of parents and their kids.

Just take a look below

Doesn’t that just make you want to laugh a little? There is something so innocent and yet so funny about it. It kind of makes me think of freaky friday but on a whole different level.

I may even start doing couple swaps. I think that will have an equally hilarious outcome. Actually, if that idea strikes you a funny and you want to participate, send me a message!

Check out how I swap heads below:

For all those wildly imaginative kids out there.

Remember that sweet little image I created early in January? It was of a little boy sitting on his bed looking out his window and there was a dinosaur looking back.

Cool concept right?

The thing I love most about this is it shows the real imagination that children have. When they play, this is what they see. They form giant ideas and play them out. To us, its pretend but to them it’s super real and amazing.

Imagine if we had the ability to take what was in our kids minds when they are playing and print it out and see it for ourselves.

Cincinnati Ohio Photographer creates Dreamy images from Children's  imaginations

That would be incredible. You could get to know the way your child imagines, thinks and sees the world.

Fun story- That image I’m talking about is actually a creation from doing just that.

We sat down, talked about what was in the room, what it looked like, what kind of dinosaur would be in the window, what kind of pj’s he would be wearing and if it was day time or night time. So many little details all from the mind of a child.

I took those details and kept them on a little note next to me while I created a dreamy portrait of what was described to me. Basically putting what he sees into something tangible that we all can appreciate and his mom can hold close to her as he grows up and look back and remember those fun moments that he had as a kid.

When she showed him the photos when they were done, he looked up at her and said “This was yesterday right mommy?” because he really remembers this whole scene happening. Talk about the most adorable melt your heart moment.

So let me ask you this. Does your child have a crazy imagination? Do they always tell you about the adventures they go on? Do they love playing dress up and making up characters and people they are pretending to be?

If you answered yes to any one of these, I guarantee you have a little dreamer on your hands with an imagination that is exploding inside of their heads. Why not take the opportunity to see what their imagination really looks like. I promise it is an experience you won’t forget.

Literally the cutest puppies I've EVER SEEN! Cincinnati Ohio Pet Photography

Listen to this blog post by pressing play now :)

Late last year I partnered with Hotel Covington for an AMAZING day full of puppies and fun.

Their outdoor courtyard was filled with some of the cutest dogs I’ve ever seen, all having fun in these big giant baby pools. They would run in and out of them chasing toys and each other.

I was there with my doggie dream photobooth. My idea was glam up the pups and show them off in an incredible portrait.

Some were a little harder than others to photograph but it was an incredibly fun experience.

Check out some of the most adorable pups below:
