Beach Picnic Photoshoot Part 1

Hello Everyone! Hope you had a good 4th of July. It is my favorite Holiday because it is laid back and more spontaneous. And all the local wild daisies are in bloom and daisies are my favorite flower! and of course summer is one of my fav. seasons :)

My friend Dana and her 3 kids were in my next Styled Photoshoot. I love collaborating with Corlana at Lana Jenae Photography (for additional photos of this shoot, visit her site)! Dana is going to surprise her husband with a few nice photos on their anniversary. So. Shhh!!! Part 1:

Lana Jenae PhotographyI bought a “Color Me” kite from Target and sewed this ticking fabric (from Walmart) with brown bias tape as edging. Dana and kids start the photoshoot journey on the trail down to Locust Beach, B’ham, WA. (I do not recommend going to this beach alone; it is secluded and beautiful but take a buddy along.)

Beach SceneAs seen in the Beach Scene: Beach Chairs and clip-on umbrella from Target, Quilt from Garage Sale, Picnic Hamper found in “free” pile (can you believe it?) My biggest inspiration, as a Stylist, has been Country Living Magazine! just so you know :)
