Nothing says 4th of July like a backyard BBQ, fireworks, and sporting your best red, white and blue attire. And nothing says summer like days by the pool, fresh produce, and a neighborhood lemonade stand. So, to celebrate Independence Day, we combined all those amazing things into an All-American-Summer-styled family shoot! We rounded up some of our favorite local vendors to bring our vision to life, including Ashley Perry Photography and Let’s Celebrate Love, and boy did they deliver. Because, when summer gives you lemons… you make lemonade!!!
From Urban Style momma, Sara Mackenzie:
“Independence Day is one of my favorite holidays. It’s the celebration of America, and the amazing place we live in. We teamed up with Ashley Perry Photography and Let’s Celebrate Love to create this true-to-heart photo shoot. I contacted a few local California clothing companies to contribute to these little cutie’s looks and they NAILED it. The shirt we chose, from Willow and Fern, was so fantastic and it has a little secret…the top has fireworks that glow in the dark! (Hurry and order one for your little babe to sport this Saturday!) Bow Lovely Boutique sent us the cutest black and white polka dot skirt and this cool flag-inspired headband.”
“When we asked Rachel to have her adorable little boy Owen model for the shoot, she not only agreed, but as always went above and beyond with the props too! Rachel built us the perfect little lemonade stand to execute the details for our ‘American Lemonade’ vision. And I personally think these two cuties make the perfect little couple.
The 4th of July brings things we all love together from fun, summer fruits, laughs with our family and friends at a backyard BBQ (or Beach BBQ if you live here with us!), s’mores and the highlight of the night: FIREWORKS to illuminate the sky!”
Thanks to Ashley, Rachel and all our amazing vendors! And Happy Independence Day America!!!
