For my son’s 9 year old birthday photoshoot, he wanted to be an apple. Seriously. An apple. I don’t know why. He thought it’d be fun to dress as an apple and act out a story. As a mom photographer, I have to just let him run with it because hey, he wants to do a Styled Shoot, so who am I to squash his creativity?!! Not I, said the photographer. Not I.
So enjoy Ian’s story about The Apple Boy:
Once upon a time, there was an apple.
The apple loved being an apple, but he wanted to see what else was in the World.
First he hitched a ride on a wagon. After it stopped, he carried his apple friends to escape from the scarecrow.
After resting on a hay bale, he looked at the other apples and realized he was very different from them. He was a boy!
He then saw a bear coming towards him!
Since he knew he wasn’t actually an apple, he wasn’t afraid. He just walked over to the bear and fed him.
The boy now made a home at an apple farm with the bear as his pet.
And he lived happily ever after.
