Halloween is right around the corner and in case you want to get a Halloween-themed photoshoot soon or you have one coming up, I want to give you 5 Halloween Photoshoot Ideas.
Kids In Their Costumes- If you have kids then you’ll probably want to get some pictures of them in their costumes, especially if it’s one of their first Halloweens. Picture this, you tell your photographer that you want a Halloween-themed photoshoot for your kid(s). You inform them of your child or children’s costume. They create a backdrop or scene setup that brings your kid(s) costume to life. For example, maybe your daughter wants to be a princess. So your photographer uses a backdrop with a castle for them to pose in front of. Or maybe your three boys want to go as Freddy, Michael Myers, and Jason, so your photographer created a backdrop in a creepy dark forest. The possibilities are endless.
Cosplay-Themed Shoots- If you’re into Anime then this will be the Halloween-themed shoot for you. Imagine dressing up as your favorite anime character with a backdrop of their hometown behind you. This especially works well if you have a partner or a group of people to portray several characters from one anime. Maybe you and your friends dress up s the crew from One Piece. Or if you have a lot of sisters you dress up as the ladies from Sailor Moon.
Halloween Movie-Themed Shoots- If you’re big into Horror Movies like I am, then this might be your best bet. You dress up as a character from your favorite Halloween movie and reenact a scene. This is especially fun for couples or groups to do once again. Imagine reenacting a scene from Halloween with your best friend dressed as Michael or a scene from Chucky by yourself with a good guy doll. And if you have kids, maybe you dress up as Pennywise and pose your kids to be running from you.
Family Halloween Portraits- If you and your family have been wanting a family portrait done and your favorite holiday happens to be Halloween then you may want to do this nontraditional option. A family portrait in costumes. Maybe you all dress up as the Adams Family or The Incredibles. This could be a very fun option for both adults and kids.
Pets In Their Costumes- If you want some portraits taken of your pet in costume this is a great idea as well. You can also jump in the picture with them if you bring a costume of your own as well. Maybe you and your dog dress up as Scooby Doo and Shaggy or maybe you just show off your dog’s latest ghost costume in this photoshoot. There are a lot of fun options to do here.
I hope this list gave you some spooky good ideas! I’ll see you all next week for another blog.
