You’ve probably seen those trendy “inside the box” photos floating around social media for a bit. I tried my hand at them in April of 2020 (you remember, when we were all stuck at home?) The first time I did it, I just used my iPhone, handheld, with an Amazon box. It was adorable and still one of my favorite photos of my kids. Then, I got a bit fancier (and the cardboard box got WAAAAY bigger) when I did a tutorial on Instagram for my friends stuck at home too. That time I used a tripod.
About a year later, one of my long time clients asked me to do the cutest Toy Story birthday photos in a cardboard box. Needless to say, I got a bit of a good reputation for these cute little box photos.
I had a feeling these photos would be a huge hit, so I had a large white box made… and here is where the magic truly begins. When people found out I was doing these “Box 2 School” minis, it spread like wild fire. So far, I’ve done about 15 sessions in the last week. Do you want to get in on this action? I’ve broken my process down for you in a YouTube video below.
