Julie Peveto has taken a lot of photographs, but her two favorite subjects are her husband and adorable 7-year-old daughter.
In 2014, when her husband dressed up as the Baron Samedi for a trip to New Orleans with friends, Julie saw a great opportunity for a Day-of-the-Dead-themed photo shoot.
She dressed her daughter in similarly spooky attire and staged an awesome shoot near their home.
Friends and family couldn’t get enough of the ghoulish pics, so the family decided to start a Halloween tradition.
The next year, Julie dressed dad and daughter as blood-sucking vampires.
The pair lurked around an old castle in Oklahoma as mom snapped photos.
This year, they dressed as ghostly spirits, restlessly roaming about a graveyard.
Julie’s preparation was more elaborate than ever this year, too, with her daughter wearing a vintage nightgown and her husband an old, shredded, powdery suit.
“It’s usually too much work to think about me also dressing up,” Julie said with a laugh. “Right now it’s just something special between dad and daughter.”
“He’s very involved, picks her up from school every day. They have a really great relationship.”
Along with amazing costumes and impeccable camera work, Julie’s photos capture two parents willing to go to great lengths to build amazing memories with their daughter.
SINCE SHE STARTED THE PROJECT, JULIE’S PHOTOS HAVE GONE VIRAL SEVERAL TIMES.
“People say, ‘Oh, what a fun memory to have,’” she said. “Just the togetherness of the family going out and doing something fun together.”
THE FAMILY PLANS ON KEEPING THE TRADITION GOING AS LONG AS POSSIBLE, TOO.
“Until my daughter doesn’t want to do it anymore,” Julie joked.
