A Photoshoot with My Own <3

When you’re a photographer, it’s pretty easy to put down the camera when you get home. After all, it feels like “the office”. But when the Boybarians had the chance to shoot with some ah-maze-ing pirate costumes, we jumped at the chance.

The costumes were provided by BuyPirateCostumes.com and modeled here by my boys. Randy and I searched for the perfect antique claw foot tub, and did styling and makeup. Randy made the mast from dowels, and I made the sails from old bedsheets. It was a really fun shoot to style!

Aaarrggggghhhhhh, mateys!

Such a fun shoot! Have you ever coordinated a themed shoot? It’s a lot of work, but a LOT of fun!

  1. Your little pirates are the cutest! What a fun adventure : ) How did the boybarians like it?

    • well, they LOVE LOVE LOVE the costumes, but they don’t always love my photoshoots. It’s always hardest shooting your own. However, my baby wanted to sleep in his costume and he may not take if off between now and halloween. ;)

  2. How awesome! Love the tub and the mast, and of course the outfits! Your boys look like they’d be great pirates!
