One of the things I enjoy the most about writing, For the Love of Books, for La Petite Magazine is taking the photos to go along with the article. Honestly, I take the photos before I write- I'm a visual person. This last issue's theme was "vintage surf" & I knew right away that I wanted to include those little striped swim trunks in the shoot. Believe it or not, they were Chris' favorite swim trunks when he was around Sayer's age. I couldn't believe that he still had them! Once I found that Snoopy surfing book, I knew that one of my favorite childhood items needed to be included as well- my plush Snoopy. I loved including these tidbits of nostalgia in my book feature & wanted wanted to share. These are a few of my favorite outtakes from the shoot. I only wish I had a photo of mini Chris in these swim trunks now.
