Art ala Carte: Messy Madness Photography

I had the chance to photograph several Messy Madness sessions last year. (I’ve selected just a few of my favorites here!) They are so much fun.

So here’s the gist of how Messy Madness goes: you have a bunch of adorable babies, get them down to just diapers, and let them loose to play with paint and shaving cream (all non-toxic, of course). It’s an amazing sensory experience for them–and for the parents too. Yes, the parents end up getting messy too, it’s a whole family affair. 🙂

I *love* seeing the kids explore and have fun at these sessions. At least one kid always eats the paint or licks the brushes, and at least one attempts to camouflage themselves by covering their entire body in paint and/or shaving cream. Often one will try to wear a paint bowl as a hat too. Some babies like painting with the brushes, some use the different toys to paint, and some just go for it, smearing and swirling their hands all up in the paint.

Seriously. So much fun, and so, so adorable. Messy Madness Photography_0028
