Holi Powder Family Photo Shoot and some Tips to Make it Awesome

Holi Powder Family Photo Shoot and some Tips to Make it Awesome

Here are some quick tips if you plan to do a session with coloured Holi Powder. 

Tip #1 - Just Buy It! At first I was not able to find it in stores, only for a really high price on Amazon, so I googled and found a ton of recipes online for DIY Holi Powder.  FIVE days later, I made about 6 bags of it and let me tell you, it was a P.I.T.A.  Plus, I followed a recipe that used flour, and flour does not stick when its dry, so when we threw it, it did practically nothing.  Good thing about 3 days before the shoot my friend messaged me and offered to give me a ton of bags of the real stuff.  Buy the real stuff, it sticks to skin and is super vibrant and awesome!
