If yesterday’s baby #pumpkinbutt reveal was not quite your thing, maybe this pumpkin-themed “Dudeoir” photo shoot might tickle your Halloween-loving fancy, instead?
The beard. The briefs. The gourd. The moody gaze. It’s almost too much to handle, even for seasoned pumpkin lovers like us.
And yet we keep scrolling through these photos, for reasons we can’t quite understand.
These mood-boosting images are the genius work of Nashville-based photographer Gayla Thompson who decide to spice up her gosh-darned life and capture husband Ryan in all his Halloween glory.
“Let the dude-oir shoot begin!” she may have shouted as she invited her other half to strip down to his undies, pop some flowers in his hair and lie in the grass/pick-up truck with some strategically-placed gourds.
And let us just say that Ryan seems to be all in on this cute shoot. He’s apparently not content to hide his festive enthusiasm under a bushel, preferring to be Halloween-positive and share his very pumpkin-y attitude with the world. And aren’t you glad he did?
Lucky for us, Gayla is a crack photographer (not literally, no pun intended) and managed to distill the essence of Halloween-Ryan in all his gourd-loving glory. It’s helping to shake-up gender stereo-types, raise awareness of spooky holidays AND spark strange cravings for pumpkin soup across the globe.
It’s all Gayla’s genius fault and she seems to be reaping the rewards. Her business Facebook page – GT Photography – has been flooded with interested celebration-loving types, all apparently keen to understand Ryan a little better (and hopefully book Gayla for their next special event!)
Scroll through to witness the genius that is Gayla – and the commitment that is gourd-admiring Ryan. (And don’t forget to follow Gayla at GT Photography so that you may delight in her pleasing work!)
