Click... Goes the Camera

This past week Sarah and I headed downtown to the laundromat where we did our Christmas card photo-shoot. My king sized comforters were in need of cleaning and when we had visited this winter, the red staircase outside caught my eye, so we loaded the machines, put our money and detergent in, then had a little photo fun while we were waiting for everything to finish.

A few months back, I was lucky enough to win a gift card to the Clickin Moms online Store.....and we picked up this adorable Pink Diana Mini Film Camera, in addition to a few other goodies. I love their storefront and often shop for cute photography related goodies...... especially when I am filling workshop goodie bags:) Both the girls love this little camera and I do too...... so much that I stylized this shoot around it.

We paired it with our favorite Click Satchel and needed some reading material while we waited, so of course what else would a budding photographer read, but Click Magazine!!

Aren't these glasses a scream?
I thought they were the perfect touch to this set up. They are actually 3 D Glasses with the lenses popped out. They work so well and you don't have to worry about getting any glare.

Not only did Sarah totally rock those glasses, but she really got into the role. It was so much fun to watch her.

We eventually headed inside to check on our comforters and when I turned around and saw her on the yellow chairs, I had to snap just a few more. Retro-ish with bright color pops is not my typical photography style, but it sure was fun to kind of venture of the path, not to mention both Sarah and I both had a lot of fun doing this. She helped with the outfit election. She chose the shirt and shorts and I suggested the shoes that matched. Sarah has kind of outgrown the dress phase...... and is now asking for shorts every day. These denim ones are her favorite at the moment. Oh my girl is definitely growing up!!

Love how you make a "mundane activity" (washing a comforter) into insane creativity!! I love finding unusual dream spots such as the "red staircase". Of course mine doesn't come out as nearly as good as yours though!! Sarah totally rocked this photo session!!

Lisa, you are just amazing! I would probably walk past that staircase 100 times and never think of styling a photo shoot around it!
Sarah is a fabulous model, I see how she is in the role!
My favourite is the one with yellow chairs, I would be making that in poster size!
