There are few things better than the whole month of July. I love all of the fireworks, celebrations, birthdays, backyard hangouts, and seeing the flags line the streets for the 4th and 24th of July. I planned my first styled shoot last year and after seeing how dang fun they are I knew I needed to make it a yearly thing. You can find last years styled shoot here. I had the hardest time deciding between a cute group of girls or making it a couples styled shoot for this years session. I'm the worst at making decisions and with the options too hard to pick I did both. Can you blame me? We started out the first part of the evening with the funnest group of girls, (you can find their blog post here) and ended
with the cutest couple. Somke bombs, flags, sparklers, and a killer sunset made the night a total dream.
I was so excited for the sparklers I had found and was bummed out when my lighter wouldn't light them. Luckily Dawson saved the day and happened to have a torch in the back of his truck. We all laughed so hard trying to get those bad boys lite. Marti and I met a few years ago when I took her prom picture. Since then we have shot together 6 other times. Each time keeps getting more and more fun. It's more than a client photographer relationship at this point and I look forward to having my own backyard so I can invite a few of my favorite clients I have met over the years my own backyard bbq. #party She always finds the cutest outfits for each shoot. These red, white, and blue pictures were no exception. Keep scrolling to get your own 4th of July outfit ideas.
You can find a few of my favorite past sessions with Marti here. Happy Birthday America!
