Josie is an adorable six month old I had the joy of photographing. Her mom loves the Wizard of Oz, so we trended the shoot in that direction.
Josie’s mom and I worked together to figure out a costume. I browsed Pinterest, eBay, and Amazon for Dorothy dress ideas and then she improvised on her favorites. The tutu was a perfect solution for a six month old baby girl, and her mom attached some gingham fabric squares and “straps” to a onesie to make the jumper. A pair of sparkly red shoes completed the look.
While Josie has a real dog who looks like Toto, we both agreed that a stuffed dog was more likely to stay in the basket for the whole photo shoot.
Finally, Josie’s grandparents own a farm in Oklahoma, which is like Kansas, but with more tornadoes. But we left those out for this photo shoot.
