Today is dress like mommy day at school. It was a head scratcher as to how we were gonna go about this. then a light bulb went off. My girls love taking photos, therefore the need to dress like mommy when she goes to photoshoots. I always wear white most of the time or gray or black tops to my photoshoots. reason for this is I use myself as a reflector. Lots of people don’t realise but the colour of your clothes reflects onto your subject. Therefore i keep my clothing it very neutral and white reflects lights.
That is why i choose to go with white tops for my girl. I went to the cheapest clothing shop i could find and bought us all white tops. The girls tops are actually boys vests which was even cheaper than t-shirt. the vests were R12 each and my top R40 from PEP. I wanted to show they love photography and I still had some of the Fabric paint in my paint box and started painting on their tops “I Heart Photography” by using my logo. Well at least i tried drawing it. Drawing is not high on my list of skills.
My girls always ask that i put make up on them but we have a rule no make up so today the rule didnt apply as they have to dress like mommy. They were in their element as I mak-up’ed them. Tinker The dog had to feature in some of the Photos.
I just love a school that not only stimulates my kids mentally and physically but also allow my mommy skills to be utilise with all the creative events that they plan. Next event in a few weeks time culture day. Already have my girls outfits ready and waiting 🙂
