I’m still trying to keep up with my new year’s resolution to do 12 photo shoots of my kids in 2012… For my son’s sixth birthday, I knew I wanted to do a themed shoot with inspiration from his favorite book How I Became a Pirate by Melinda Long & David Shannon. I knew that I wanted the theme to appear more like “playing pretend” rather than being over done with costumes. I was thrilled when I found the perfect t-shirt at Crewcuts. I made the telescope out of a newspaper and made the red bandana out of a cheap red t-shirt from walmart. It turned out to be a rather simple shoot to pull together. My favorite was getting to use this old tub I had spotted before while doing a bridal shoot. The tub is randomly sitting out in the middle of a field! I thought it would make the perfect boat! This was one of the most fun shoots I have ever done! So many favorites that I decided I should just share a whole bunch!
