Craftista extraordinaire and fellow momista Jenny Dixon of Craft That Party is back today with another creative idea for fall fun. You might remember her most recent posts about DIY temporary tattoos and using vintage china as a vase for your bouquets. Today Jenny is sharing some super cute ideas for photographing your little ones in their Halloween costumes. Take it away, Jenny…
Hi Tori readers, it's Jenny from Craft That Party back to share some simple tips to capture fabulous pictures this Halloween. My go-to photographer and friend Alli and I decided to test out our advice using our own kids. We brought five kids, seven costumes, three props, two cameras, and one bag of candy with us (the last item bought us an extra 15 minutes of smiles!).

Night photography can be tricky. Rather than snapping a quick picture before your kids head out to trick or treat, take pictures ahead of time in natural daylight.
2. Lean In.
Find a spot outside that would make an interesting backdrop, such as a brick wall, wood door, or a tree. Have the kids lean against it. This picture of my little Batman looks more dramatic leaning against this light pole than if I had just snapped a picture of him standing next to it.
3. Have Fun!
Let the kids run, jump, and be silly. Let them act out their Halloween costume and capture some images of them having fun in character.
