Last Saturday I did some engagement photos for a cousin of mine. I was happy to do them! I really enjoy doing these sorts of shoots and I got to work on thinking up new ideas. I wanted to do something fresh and different since i did her sisters engagement photos too. Can't be doing the same thing LOL. So, i got to googling ....again. I love that search engine. I've always wanted to do photos that have red balloons. I gave her a call and asked her if she liked the idea and if she could pick up a bouquet of them. She seemed for it and what was funny was that, she wasn't sure about it. I found that out after the shoot. I think she was surprised to find out how well they turned out. I was very happy with them and I can't wait to do that one again! I also ran by the dollar store and picked up some bubbles. My kids were thrilled cause they got some too. Bonus for everyone. I wasn't exactly sure how i was gonna use them but i saw some pics online that thought might be worth a shot. I also gave my other cousin a call and asked her if she had any ideas. She had a great one, an old fashioned glass soda pop bottle! I just happened to have an empty Crush one sitting on my counter. I didn't want to go out and buy a pack of pop, so i washed that one up and made up some orange koolaid i had. I put it in a separate container and grabbed a couple bright colored straws.
I had so much fun taking these pictures. I even grabbed my great Grandmothers quilt she made by hand. It was a great addition to the pop pics. After we took a load of pics in this field, we ventured into downtown. We pit stopped at some railroad tracks and got some nice shots there.
