Halloween has been my favorite holiday for decades. The inside of my house turns into a skeleton & scary clown fest. I try to get to Salem, MA every year or so with my kids, too.
I think what draws me to this Holiday called Halloween is that I or we all get to be creative; it's a time that you're creativity can shine. I get to be someone else for a day; however, I do feel that Halloween is more of a lifestyle than a Holiday.
It's just fun! My assistant saw some photos titled 'boo-doir' somewhere on social media and tagged me in the post so I could try it, too. Before a newborn session one morning, the family was just a few minutes behind schedule and I was all set up, I had this skeleton in the car, so I took a crack at my first 'boodoir' photosession.
I must say, I fell in love with posing this skeleton right away; I was amazed that this pile of bones could actually hold some of the poses.
For the past several years, I've had a Halloween themed portrait session, but one was a family portrait of all of my creepy dolls and the other two were of a creepy monster baby swaddled up like in the newborn photos.
I've been wanting to create a Halloween themed photo session around fog and special lights, but that may need to wait for next year since this is what I created this year. Although, I can totally see this Boodoir session happening again next year; perhaps it will become an annual event; a Halloween tradition, such as pumpkin picking, hay rides and drinking fresh apple cider from the farm.
These are just a few of the poses; I have about a dozen of them that I love. If you're interested in viewing more of them, I'm sure I'll be posting them to my social media. Please follow me at: ig: millie_dee_photo and fb: MillieDee Photography.
Happy Halloween, 2020 style, everyone!
Stay Scary Healthy this year!
Where did the name Millie Dee come from? It's my 2 nicknames, my maiden name is Miller, so some friends call me Millie and some call me Dee instead of Denise, so I jammed them together and made Millie Dee...
