La Lune | Family Photographers in Destin
When I get inspired to style a session, I usually write it down in my journal and hope and pray for the right client to come along for it. I had wanted to do a piñata birthday session for months now and had pretty much decided if the right client didn’t come along soon, I would just have to do this shoot for my children. After all, I am super behind on their birthday pics (March and July). After talking to my friend Autumn she told me that she really wanted me to take her daughter’s 4 year old birthday photos. Then it hit me! Luna would be PERFECT for this idea so I was off to start researching the perfect piñata. After finding a gorgeous piñata that cost about $200 I decided to make one instead. $200 for cardboard that I want to let a 4 year old destroy with a stick? No thank you. I came across this tutorial for a moon piñata and I knew I didn’t need to look any further. Afterall, Autumn’s daughter’s name is Luna! It was perfect! I took an old Zara box from a recent baby clothes delivery and started cutting out my shape. After lots of tape, gold foil tissue paper, mod podge glue, and sweat and tears it was finished. ;)
We went to an urban looking area for this session and I am just smitten. Luna was so stinking cute, she couldn’t have been any easier to take photos of. I hope you all enjoy them as much as I do! Happy 4th birthday Luna!
