44/52 – Work or Play

November 3, 2013

Last weekend, a great fundraiser was developed from this very simple FB post:

“After lunch we’re going shopping and Mama we buy you a princess costume.” I’m not sure which was better – the Doodle’s assertion that she was going to dress up as a firefighter and Otto was going to be her companion princess OR Otto’s face when she realized she need to whip up a princess costume for herself.

A bunch of our friends and colleagues were particularly interested in seeing Otto as a princess. They were so very excited that they began to commit donations to one of our favourite charities. And, thus A Royal Family photo shoot was born.

44/52 - Work or Play

We try not to take ourselves too seriously around here in either work or play, and this photo shoot was a little bit of both.

A Royal Family - 1

The Doodle and her mama. She thought this was hysterical.

While Bella started out as a prince, she couldn’t wait to transform herself into a princess as well.

A Royal Family - 3Bella very graciously did mine and the Doodle’s make up.  Otto needed no inspiration to pull this look together.

A Royal Family - 4

How did Bubaloo get into the photo? Bella wanted him to participate so badly that she offered to make his lunch for a week (which he then bargained with her to get it to a week and a half).

A Royal Family - 5

Even the dog wanted in on the action.

A Royal Family - 6I think this would make the best Christmas card photo ever.  Or maybe I love it so because I think everyone should know what I look like in Otto’s wedding dress, and she in mine.

A Royal Family - 7These tea cups belong to my great gran and she gifted them to us last year.  The Doodle came up with the idea all on her own to bring a juice box prop.

A Royal Family - 8These two cracked me up. We had to really work with Bella to let go and be a silly spoofy princess.

A Royal Family - 9She got quite good at it in the end.

    These are really fantastic. You all have too much fun! Otto looks pretty good in your wedding dress! And I’m glad Buballoo participated, too. You’ll have so much fun looking back on these in a few years time.
