Michael Always Comes Home at Halloween


Fair warning: slightly scary post if you scroll down! Halloween has never been my favorite holiday and if I never saw another scary movie I'd be fine, however as I've mentioned before Thomas has a lot of enthusiasm for this season and creepy movies and his enthusiasm is catching. So in honor of this spooky time we decided to create a little photoshoot inspired by the classic horror: Halloween. We visited the abandoned theme park I've taken pictures at a few times before, found Thomas the perfect creepy costume, and enlisted my friend Jon to snap the mayhem. Strangely enough we were not the only ones doing a horror-themed photoshoot at the abandoned theme park on this day--there was also a creepy clown wandering around with photographer in tow! All in all it was a pretty fun day and I think the photographs do a really good job of telling the story. I'm already wondering what scary movie we should pay homage to next year. Any suggestions?

This photo shoot is amazing! I think that it's so awesome that you're trying to give Thomas a true Halloween experience, and it seems like the two of you had so much fun. That Anthropologie jacket is really cute, by the way.

Amazing seasonal series, and I love the idea of doing a Night of the Living Dead version - it WAS filmed in rural PA, after all!

Mirkka said...

Haha very cool. :D i love your scary expressions!

Jessica said...

That looks like so much fun! You guys did a great job with the photographs, capturing him in the background as he creeps closer and closer.
Love that dress. The folky embroidery is beautiful.

Oh I love this post! Seriously a perfect idea for this week. Halloween/Michael Myers is definitely my favorite of the horror 'franchises'. I wish I had an abandoned amusement park to run around in. Beautiful shots!

What a fun idea for a Halloween photoshoot! Though to be honest, I'd be pretty freaked out being chased around and abandoned theme park by a man in a Michael Myers mask even if I knew it was only for fun! XD
