For over two years we worked on this amazing Wild Thing photo series. I have thoroughly enjoyed capturing our boys dressed as these characters from our favorite book, “Where the Wild Things Are” by Maurice Sendak . The series features Bradyn as “Max” in a wolf suit. This beautiful costume was originally Xander’s when he was two/three years old, and we managed to captured a couple of great photos of him in the costume. But the photo series truly began when we passed it along to Brady, who rocked it for another two years.
Every weekend that it snowed we went out for a photoshoot. The Max costume was very warm and both boys wore it their first times skiing.
We had also designed a set for Xander, with a small boat and a woodland backdrop. So we brought that set back out for Bradyn.
New to our backdrop collection is a specific “Where the Wild Things Are” backdrop. This beautiful backdrop was designed by intuitionbackgrounds. The boys felt like they had stepped right into a page from the book.
Our last photo session was done on the beach. Because these costumes were very worn in at this point, I was willing to sacrifice them. I knew both boys were getting to big for these costumes. So just like a “trash the wedding dress” session. The boys dove into the water and we let them just have fun!
We are working on getting brand new wild thing costumes for future clients, so that we can keep this story book alive in our hearts. Please follow us on facebook, for updates on when “Wild Thing” studio and outdoor sessions will be available for booking.

Because most of these pictures feature Bradyn, here’s a sweet video of Xander wearing his wild thing costume.
