It was a great Summer here in Utah. The weather was quite pleasant as it never got overly hot and miserable which was really nice. One of the best highlights of the summer was meeting Melissa Schuur. She was the winner of the World Wide Giveaway. If you don’t remember what that was [click here]. I planned the shoots for this 2 day workshop for months. The agenda included a vintage Coca Cola shoot (those pics coming soon) with the ever beautiful couple Madeline and Justin and a fun shabby Summer lemonade stand! We covered so much over the two days and by the end of the first day Melissa was shooting in manual perfectly! The weather was amazing (although it threatened to be naughty both days), and we had the most incredible shoots! We ate delicious food and pretty much laughed our guts out…. (I like to laugh people)! Good times!!
This Lemonade shoot was crazy! My poor husband got roped into making the lemonade stand like 1 day before the shoot was to take place! With a lot of hard work and help from my sister we were able to make this lemonade stand the shabby vintage style I envisioned. ***NOT all sessions need to be stylized with ooodles of props. There is just something about going out and shooting without all the added props. It’s raw, its real, it’s fantastic. But stylized and themed shoot are simply just a fun way for me to express all the crazy ideas that rattle around in my brain!
