This wizard theme photo shoot is part of a series of storybook photo sessions created and designed by Sharon Hoeg Photography.

You know what happens when you turn eleven?  That’s right.  Your Hogwarts letter arrives. (Oops.  Almost wrote Hoegwarts because wouldn’t my last name be the perfect wizard school name?!)  The 11th birthday is such a big one, much bigger than 10, and when you come to see me, we celebrate it in style. 🙂  As a Gryffindor myself, I was thrilled to share this special day with these lovely clients that I’ve been seeing for 10 years!!!

This wizard theme photo session took place on a hot, sunny day in Northville, Michigan.  This Hufflepuff and his family had a blast sharing all their own Harry Potter props and creatures with me as we photographed this milestone birthday.  I was super impressed with the crocheted Owl and that golden snitch looks much easier to catch than the metal one.  You’ll have to tell me which one is your favorite.

I love bringing stories to life.  Whether it’s the fierce love of your family or the imagination of your child, I love to dream right along with you.  These woods were the perfect backdrop for casting spells and summoning a patronus, which he managed to do at this session!!  I found the perfect patch of light for my subject too.  With the help of some amazing special effects from my friend (Photoshop) Wizard Caitlyn, I think we nailed the vision for this session.  The only improvement would have been if a hippogriff stopped by!

Do you know a kid turning 11 who is checking that mailbox everyday?  This session is just for them.  Plus, I have a second great location for their “herbology” photo shoot.  Someday I hope to add a potions stand to make this a trilogy of wizard locations!
