When I was planning Allison’s shoot, my internal dialog went something like this: “Glitter. Balloons. OOOH cupcakes. Yes, and bubbles. While we’re at it, let’s add some sparklers into the mix. That should be fun.” If you combine all of these elements and add a vibrant personality, you’ll get Allison. I’ve known Allison since we were in elementary school when we bonded over the DS game Nintendogs at a mutual friend’s party. Since then we’ve done several photo shoots where we take turns photographing each other, but this day was all about her. She loves mint green and turquoise, Forever 21 and Charlotte Russe. Pinterest-ing is her thing and frozen yogurt is her dessert of choice.
This shoot was a learning curve in several ways, with the foremost point being that Walmart needs a 24 hour notice for helium balloons. I discovered that golden bit of information on the day of the shoot (I’m the queen of last minute) but luckily Allison is super amazing and she was able to postpone a day for the sake of the balloons. After a fun day of shooting we came back to my house and feasted on cupcakes. How perfect is that?
Enjoy the images!
Have a wonderful rest of the week, friends!
