Background info: The photo shoot was done in our living room, on the floor (sans dropcloth---it seem like a good idea, but we would have been tripping on it, and I don't think it would have contained the mess, anyway). The backdrop was holiday stuff that we tape to the back of our couch (with black duct tape). We took 233 pictures. The clean up is an ongoing effort---when I dust, I'm still finding flour. It keeps going airborne and redistributing.
All pictures will be enlarged if you double click (I think).
In the beginning things were festive, but flourless . . .
Then, the stage was set . . .
And the talent was brought in . . .
Maya: What is this stuff?
Parker: Guys, this seems like a very bad idea.
Maya: This is fantastic!
Maya: I think I could be very naughty with this stuff. Hee hee!
Parker: I think I'm hyperventilating.
Parker: Save meeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!
This flour is so slippery!
She had some fun shaking the bag . . .
and then moved on to dumping.
This is the most fun I've ever had!
(that's Maya talking, not Parker. In case you can't tell)
Maya: Daddy! I need more flour!
Parker: Please no.
Parker: Seriously, are you guys seeing this?
Maya: Hey Mommy, are you watchin' me?
Parker: Yeah, is anyone watching? Anyone?
Maya: Woot woot! Can a girl get some more flour up in here?!
(note Parker seeming to stretch as far as he can away from her)
Parker: I can't believe they really gave you more. Everyone has lost their mind.
When Dave wasn't quick enough to refill the bag, Maya took matters into her own hands:
Maya: Fine, I'll do it myself.
Parker: Someone needs to cut her off.
Maya: FUNNEST DAY EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Parker: We're done, right? Please say we're done.
(fancy lighting, right?)
Ended with a great-job-Maya kiss from Daddy :)
