WW: Pile of Books {Linky}

I saw a photo of my co-worker's kids reading to one another. I decided I wanted the boy's next shot to be somewhat like that.

I brought to Picture People 2 big totes filled with books and one outfit change. Yes I have a lot of books! It was raining like cats and dogs. I was so worried everything would get wet.

I knew when the photographer got out the ladder, that I'd probably like a pose from that setting best.


You don't see tons of books, but you get the idea. There were tons of them! The ones seen are Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs, In the Night Kitchen, If You Give a Cat a Cupcake and Tessa the Teacher.

Mica's now reading full children's books to us. Isaak loves to get read to!

I got their outfits at Gymboree. Isaak's hair is so fussy! Mica's supporting his cool hat!

It can be hung different ways. This is the way I decided to hang it. It's not matted with these colors, although I wish it was. That was done in Photoshop.

This is such a creative shot! I especially like that they are your books. I can just see the boys looking at the picture in about 10 years and saying,"Hey, I remember Mom reading that book to me!"

The photo turned out great! Glad your books didn't get ruined. My girls have quite a few of those same titles and I would be crushed if they got ruined!
