Meet the Whipples - an extraordinary family. Who needs an average holiday photo, when you can choose a theme year after year? Yes please!
And not that this photoshoot needs much explanation, but I would like to give a little credit where it's due. ;-) .... When planning this session I knew that there was a Mystery Machine hiding in Melbourne & I knew we just had to use it!! Luckily we were able to get in touch with the owner, who turned out to not only be incredibley sweet but insanely talented!! Thank you Sonya Conway at Fine Faux Finishes for allowing us to steal your ride for the night :) -- If anyone needs interior home painting, this is your go-to-gal! Oh and her daughter owns a super funky & extremely creative little thrift shop in Melbourne as well - sooo worth a gander as they not only sell super cute modern & vintage items, they re-purpose furniture as well! www.omgthrift.com ..
So beyond that amazingness, there is a bit of a story even before accomodating the van into the shots. Without knowing whether or not we'd have access, I decided to have William Whipple (6 years old) draw me his own custom Scooby Doo monster. WOW. He's got some talent & made it extremely easy for me to interpret his character into their photos.
And here we have it - Scooby Doo & the Whipples!! :) Minus Velma, she was on vaction ;)
