14th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Altered Images
Patiently Awaiting Halloween

Inspired by eerie black and white images of children in their vintage Halloween costumes, I created this dark scene in my living room. I purchased an old pink dress from a local thrift shop, created a creepy mask with a plain pillowcase, used some of my antique book collection, and some skulls from my Halloween decorations. My model is one of my 3-year-old twin sons. He loves everything "Palloween", and was excited to do a "spooky" photo shoot with mom.
