Shiver Me Timbers! – Knoxville Family Photographer

Is anyone tired of my pirate lingo yet?  🙂 Sadie and Gavin (the pride and Joy of the one and only Polkadaisies!) wrapped up my evening of pirate {mini sessions}.  It was only fitting to capture them in the old bathtub that has turned pirate ship in its latter days.  We have some old bathtub/Polkadaisies history you know!  For those of you that have been following SCP for a while, you might remember our first SCP/Polkadaisies photo shoot.  Sadie was the first one I ever photographed in the tub.  When I was editing her pirate images, I realized just how much she (and Gavin) have grown since that first time we put her in that tub.

Anyhow, these two buckaroos are so familiar to my camera, I think I could photograph them with my eyes closed! Okay, maybe not!  But, I do love photographing them.  And, they could always win the hypothetical “best dressed” award, too.  🙂  Becky made Gavin’s shirt and the bunting banner.  That banner was the perfect touch to my pirate set!

(By the way- I am going to try to get this set out one more time to photograph my kids if anyone is interested in a pirate {mini} let me know asap! )

We hit the “golden hour” just right.  I embraced the light and went with it.  I love the summer sun feel of these.  We don’t have many evenings like this left…
