Circus Lion.

I have had this shoot planned since Zachary was like 6 months. Man, it feels good when you finally put an idea into practice. Even if it doesn't work out how you envisioned it it's nice to get that idea out of your head and make room for new ones. I am one of those people who has too many ideas. Notebooks and notebooks filled with them. The hard part is picking which ones to act on and quieting the others for a moment. Anyone else have this problem?

Anyways, we couldn't figure out what to make Zachary for Halloween. Anyone with a toddler knows that anything with a hat or glasses just wasn't going to happen. And most of our ideas involved a hat or glasses that would stay on his head for two seconds. Thankfully we just happened to have this adorable lion costume that was handed down to us (thanks Deana and Trip!). It was labeled 6-12 months so I didn't think there was a chance he would fit into it since he's into a 2T now (at 17 months). It was tight but it worked. And he kept it on. Hooray! I was just excited for the opportunity to finally do this little shoot.

And if you're wondering what he's looking at. I had to resort to putting on his favorite show to get him to sit for this. I forgot that I become pretty invisible when his buddies, the Fresh Beat Band, are on.

Did any of you or your little ones dress up? What did you guys go as?
