There are so many things that I love about Fall! From the colorful leaves and cooler temperatures to the black cats, ghouls, pumpkins and witches, it’s just a wonderful time of year! But, let’s be real… it also marks the end of another smoldering Texas summer. What more do you need to celebrate?!
It’s such a magical time for the kids, too. Pumpkin patches, trick-or-treating, hayrides, campfires and s’mores – it just doesn’t compare to any other season. But what I love the most about Fall is Halloween! As a kid it was thrilling to get all dressed up and go trick-or-treating with my friends. And now, as an adult, I get to enjoy Halloween night festivities with my own children. Seeing all of the creatures of the night is the best part.
Halloween time at the studio is also a magical one. We get to add a little Halloween flair to every newborn portrait session. Here are just a few of my favorite Halloween creatures of the night… I mean babies. (We all know babies really are creatures of the night.) At Lullaby Lane Photography we provide all of the props and accessories for newborn sessions, there’s no need to bring your own! Feast your eyes upon these sweet little creatures modeling some of my favorite Halloween accessories.
When witches go riding
and black cats are seen
the moon laughs and whispers,
’tis near Halloween.
From our family to yours, we wish you all a very spooky Halloween night, filled with tricks but mostly treats! Stay safe!
It’s Halloween! It’s Halloween!
The moon is full and bright
And we shall see what can’t be seen
On any other night.
Skeletons and ghosts and ghouls,
Grinning goblins fighting duels,
Werewolves rising from their tombs,
Witches on their magic brooms.
In masks and gowns
We haunt the street
And knock on doors
for trick or treat.
Tonight we are
the king and queen,
For oh tonight
