Can't say thank you enough or how impressed I am that these ladies willingly put on swimsuits and agreed to taking photos that wouldn't be retouched all in the name of spreading some much-needed realness on the internet. We all know that there's a severe lack of women in all shapes and sizes on the internet and represented in our culture, and sometimes it's important to stop and embrace cellulite, pimples, wrinkles, and everything in between✨
I'm not sure how, but somehow a tradition of Fourth of July photoshoots accidentally began a few years ago, so when the end of June started approaching fast I knew I had to find some cute outfits and a few girls to model them for me! There's something so fun about photographing bffs, so I reached out to Shelby (we were on a swim team together in middle school!) and asked her to pick a few of her favorite ladies to come along with her! Keely and Sunni were the cutest ever, and we had a perfect summer night to shoot away. After about an hour, a few confetti popper casualties, and a couple close calls with sparklers they headed home and I spent the night immediately editing all of the photos. Enjoy!
