I love to learn about the traditions & cultures of each place we move to. I was surprised to realize how little I knew about Mardi Gras. I researched it a little bit, knowing that it was coming up sometime in March. (March 4th to be exact). After learning more about it, I knew I wanted to do some Mardi Gras inspired sessions to representing our time stationed here at Fort Polk, Louisiana.
These are some of the props that helped “inspire” me & are available to use at each session……
This king hat is a favorite among the little boys
The Mardi Gras colored tutu & matching headband is a favorite for the girls
For the kids feeling a little silly there’s this handmade Jester hat
The Jester hat was a collaborate effort & made by two wonderful ladies
Vicki Simpson made the hat itself, freestyle
& Carol Ann Woolever of Love You More 44 added the pom poms for that perfect finishing touch!
Both ladies take orders for custom crochet items
I also found several different masks in different styles & colors

It’s also available during photos for little girls size 2-3t
These masks are a hit with the little kids & big kids alike
One of my favorite Mardi Gras pieces was this custom sign
It was handmade by one of my favorite local vendors
