While going through all the different ideas for Back 2 School photos, I came across several ideas where the parents included what the child wanted to be when they grew up.  I thought it would be fun to include in or memory book each year and wanted to take it a step further with a photo shoot!  I asked my son what he wanted to be when he grew up.  He went back and forth between Wildlife Explorer, Veterinarian, and Petting Zoo owner before finally deciding on Wildlife Explorer.  I let him know we were going to be doing a photo shoot and his face lit up.  He immediately ran to his room and began selecting "props" for our photoshoot.  Shortly after our discussion, I found a pile of snakes, lizards, and stuffed creatures at the front door.  He even picked out his own outfit for the shoot! (As you will see from the previous post...this is his favorite "dressed up" outfit at the moment).  I grabbed my camera and the Panda Shutter Hugger and we headed to our local "forest".

This shoot was so much fun.  He not only posed all of his animals but he would then pose himself and say "Mom, get a picture of this!"  I will not only cherish the photos we got  but the memory of him directing the shoot as a Great Wildlife Explorer!  Here are a few shots from our shoot:







I highly recommend doing this, we had a blast!  What does your child want to be when they grow up?
