The title seems a little bit like a sham, because none of these photos were actually taken on the Fourth of July πŸ˜„ We took them on July 2nd, partly because we knew there was a chance of rain the rest of the week, and also partly because Joelle and I wanted to be able to post these pictures on the fourth πŸ˜‰

It’s been a while since Joelle and I have done a real photoshoot, but it was so fun! I can’t believe how grown up she is!! We got a bunch of fireworks and sparklers, and other fun things for photos. We started out with some normal portraits, and I love how they turned out!! Joelle is so fashionable now, I don’t even have to pick out her outfits anymore! 😜

IΒ loved the light when we were taking these! We had bought two of these cone cannon things, and I asked Chris if he could hold the second one off to the side so we’d get more of a spray of bokeh, instead of the big column of smoke behind her. So he lit it, and as SOON as it started going, my battery died! And of course ALL my other backup batteries were dead too, because I’m a bad photographer. So we raced to the pop-up fireworks tent and bought two more! By the time we came back, the light wasn’t nearly as good, but they still turned out cute ☺️

I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday! ☺️
