I’m sure you already have tons of pictures of your little girl that you’ll cherish forever. Thanks to today’s technology, we can easily snap a photo anytime we feel like it and capture every moment of a child’s development. And, yes, instant photos are a lot of fun, but they are no match to a professional photo shoot! One unique idea to try this year is father-daughter shoot!

If you don’t know where to start, let us help you get your creative juices flowing.


Step 1: Start with the Theme

For most little girls, their fathers are their heroes and they will stay that way for the rest of their lives. If you want to use this angle, the possibilities are endless. With the right Men’s Costume and Girls’ Costume, your photo shoot will become an unforgettable experience. Some of our favorites are:

–        A Fireman & Policewoman Theme – you just need a Mens Firefighter Costume & a Girls Cop Costume and you’re good to go. The father can carry the little girl on his shoulders, in his arms, pretend to escape from a fire with her or chase a mugger. Just imagine how much fun they’ll have!

Girls Tough Cop Costume


–        The Alice in Wonderland Theme – Grab some matching costumes and head off to a fantasy location. An Alice in Wonderland Theme is one of the easiest ways to get artistic photos with very little effort. Throw a tea party, as well, and you’ll have an entire Fairy Tale to shoot.

Toddler Girls Alice in Wonderland Costume – Lil Alice

Gothic Mad Hatter Costume – Mens


–        A Royal Family Theme – in this case, the possibilities are really endless. Dad needs nothing more than a tuxedo and his little girl can choose any princess, from Anastasia or Thumbelina to Cinderella or Elsa. You just need the right Princess Costume and you’ll be good to go.


Step 2: The Photographer

If you decided on the princess costume your little girl will wear or on the matching costumes for both father and daughter, the right photographer is your next step. Make sure you choose one that has experience working with children. Your daughter, especially as a little princess, may be quite fussy and you’ll need someone who knows how to convince her to strike the right pose.

Ask for referral from friends – this is the best way to ensure that you’ll get a photographer that matches your family’s style. If that’s not possible, make sure you check his reviews online – you don’t want to end up with someone who has a short temper!


Step 3: The Location

This is something that the photographer can help you with. If they have experience in working on such photo shoots, they’ll surely know all the good places in town. Something that resembles a castle is great if you chose the royal costumes. An “enchanted” forest is ideal for the Alice in Wonderland theme, while the city can be your scene if you went for the Cop Costume or Fireman Costume.

Whatever your choice, I’m sure the photo shoot will turn out excellent if you follow these tips!
