SANTA MONICA—Photography team Our Labor of Love is coming to LA this Sunday, January 18th to host an interactive kids photo shoot aptly titled Lovebugs. Taking place at the Books and Cookies boutique (2309 Main St.) in Santa Monica from 9am to 4pm, this fun photo shoot requires no portrait-style poses. Instead, little ones are invited to bring in their fave stuffed animals and blankies and just play while Our Labor of Love snaps away capturing those precious moments. The price is $200 for one child and $250 for siblings. Send your details to firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve a spot. [Racked Inbox]
