“Max” – Where The Wild Things Are – Storybook Shoot

Posted on December 13, 2013

At long last, I get to share with you another one of my special Storybook Photo Shoots.  Maurice Sendak’s classic, “Where The Wild Things Are” is one of my favorite children’s books ever.  When I was scouting around to find the perfect little boy to play “Max,” I didn’t have to look farther than my very own home.  My youngest son, Lukas, looked at me with those giant dark eyes one evening with tears streaming down his face.  “Mommy, I dreamed that monsters were chasing me!”  To calm him down, I sat him on my lap and told him that monsters were just made up creatures.  I then showed him the book, and then the lightbulb moment happened:  OMG.  He’s going to be the perfect Max!!!  And the rest is history.  🙂
