This was an idea I had one day while dreaming about cleaning out my garage to make space for a small studio setup. I looked around the house for a few things I could throw a set together with and made a phone call to a friend of mine to see if she would conspire with me to do a surprise photo shoot with her niece, whose mom is a great client of mine. I wanted to do something to say thanks, but also wanted it to be a surprise. We had been talking for a while about getting my daughter and this kiddo together for a play date, so we had the perfect ruse. They came over one afternoon, and after only twenty minutes we had ourselves a make-believe beach party shoot that we surprised her mom with on facebook!
