Pirate Themed Session in Mebane, NC

There’s only 77 more days until Halloween!  I know that’s more than two months but Halloween is my favorite day of the year.  I love dressing up, especially homemade costumes that take a little creativity.  I also love the imagination it takes to be the character you want to be.  I think that’s why I love themed sessions so much. I pulled together odds and ends from around my house to create a pirate themed session for my sons.  Cardboard swords, an old trunk my dad gave me, a black flag made from a pillow case and bamboo stake out of my garden…  I literally spent zero dollars pulling this session together.  My youngest is sporting some left over pirate costume peices from Halloween 2010.  My oldest’s bandana is from an old shirt; his sash being my winter scarf.  It reminds me of the Halloween costumes my mom pulled together when I was a kid, back in the days before everyone ran to the closest Halloween superstore to grab whatever $25-50 costume to wear for one night. My sons’ imagination never ceases to amaze me.  With swords and map in hand, they were ready to find treasure and trek through the wilderness (if they had shoes on- to which I replied “Pirates don’t wear sneakers!”).  Like true pirates, they scowled at authority and hated when I interupted their creativity with a pose. I can’t wait for October this year where I’ll be offering Halloween minis AND a special just for themed sessions.  Be sure to stay tuned on my Facebook page to learn more about those.
