Capturing the Spirit of Halloween: 5 Tips for Memorable Costume Photography


Halloween Photo Tips

Halloween is just around the corner, and it’s not just about costumes, creativity, and candy; it’s also the perfect time to create lasting memories. As your child contemplates their Halloween persona, you’re probably eager to join in on the excitement of this fast-approaching holiday. Seeing Halloween through their eyes is a pure delight, and each year, their costume choice reflects their unique personality at that moment in time.


Whether they opt for spooky, cute, or downright crazy costumes, these outfits become cherished memories that you’ll both treasure forever. One of the best ways to commemorate this special annual occasion is by scheduling a Halloween-themed photo session. This allows you to capture your growing ghosts, ghouls, and goblins before the Halloween enchantment fades away.


Creating bewitching photos is a breeze with our Halloween Photography Theme. This exclusive event encourages kids to let their personalities shine and their imaginations run wild as they play, pose, and beam with joy in their special costumes. With festive props and creative design overlays, you’re guaranteed to obtain images that are as exceptional as your little ones themselves.


Both kids and parents put a lot of thought into their Halloween costumes, and getting professional pictures taken is another reason to get all dolled up and have a blast! To ensure you get the best images to cherish for years to come, here are some valuable tips:


1. Don’t Procrastinate

Don’t wait until the last minute! Schedule your photography session now for this limited-time event at your local JCPenney Portraits studio.


2. Get the Kids Pumped

Excite your children about the upcoming session. Talk about how you’re going to dress up and pretend while getting a special picture taken. Kids love flaunting their costumes, after all!


3. Prep the Costumes

Whether the costumes have been worn often or are fresh out of the packaging, they tend to wrinkle easily. The night before your session, lay out the costumes, iron or steam them if necessary, and hang them up so they’re fresh and ready for your photo session.


4. Bring Some Props

While the studio will have some special Halloween-themed props, feel free to bring your own. Costume accessories make fantastic props that add an extra layer of fun to picture day.


5. Score a Deal

Don’t forget to snag a coupon. Show this coupon to the studio associate before your session to enjoy special savings.



Every Halloween is a special occasion, and when you have photographs of your kids in their Halloween finery, you’re creating cherished keepsakes that will outlast even the last piece of candy. Share these memories with grandparents, friends, neighbors, and more to make it a Halloween to remember for years to come.
