It’s a party in the land of Free! We got some of the girls from out FY&F team together for an unforgettable fourth of July shoot! What could be more fun than an evening dockside? An ice cold coke in one hand, sparklers in the other. We had the radio ALL the way up, and by radio I mean Spotify. :P We chose this location for our shoot was, well… HELLO it is gorgeous! But also SO nostalgic.It reminds me of those long summer days, tubing till my hands had blisters and the unmistakable smell of lake water and boat fuel.

City Crush | Forever Team Twenty

We named this shoot “City Crush” because we live in one of the best cities in the US! I really wanted to highlight Raleigh and the city we all live in! And how better to do that then with this epic city backdrop! I might have already mentioned it but I am ob-freaking-sessed with how every shot came out! Even the weather matched the shoot vibe. We shot at the roof top terrace at the Dillion in Raleigh, the Dillion is iconic to Raleigh which made it the perfect spot for our team to get their glam on make epic team pictures.

What camera do you shoot with? Oh, tale, err, question, as old as time! I get this question quite often. Well, I decided to share what my current tools for the trade are! Now, I do want to say that we are so lucky to live in such a cool technologically advance time. We don’t have to develop rolls of film in a darkroom anymore. We are not limited to however many shots are included in those rolls. And most any camera you can get today will be awesome. Here’s is my current setup, if you must know :P
