When my oldest daughter, Paisley, was 4 months old, I got this crazy idea to take photos of her in a tub of candy corn. Don’t ask, I have no idea!… But to this day, those photos definitely have a “sweet” spot in my heart. So of course, I had to reenact this photo-shoot with Payton, my 7 month old. One thing I learned this time around is that Payton (3 months older than Paisley was) already had a sweet tooth, and I had a hard time keeping the candy corn out of her mouth!
This candy corn photo-shoot is very easy to recreate. To make the candy corn headband, I bought three pieces of felt: white, orange and yellow. I cut the felt pieces into the triangle shape and hot-glued them onto a stretchy white headband. I bought 8 bags of candy corn and filled up a clear beverage tub for Payton to sit in. I left her diaper on and did my best to completely cover her with candy corn, so you can’t see it in the photos. Don’t forget to pick a fun fall backdrop – we took these photos in Prescott, Arizona.
There is nothing better than a good photo-op! Thankfully my hubby is very talented at taking photos and is extremely understanding and generous with his time; especially when it comes to me and my crazy ideas. Travis, I don’t tell you this enough … THANK YOU!!!
Here is a throwback to Paisley’s candy corn photo-shoot in October of 2012 at 4 months old.
You can have so much fun taking photos with different holiday goodies. I encourage you to get creative, grab your camera and capture your kiddos doing something fun and memorable!!!
*Disclaimer* : Keep a watchful eye on your little one’s when recreating this photo shoot. They may want to eat all of your candy corn props when you are not looking, or better yet they might pee or poop in them. I don’t recommend eating the candy corn after. 🙂
