Happy Fourth of July! I went up to Vasquez Rocks recently for this photoshoot with Anela of her quite American dress.
I thought I’d share some of my favorites here.
The park seemed a nice place for hiking in the future, but we didn’t do much during the shoot. They apparently film a lot of TV and film here too – Star Trek, Bill & Ted’s, and the Flintstones to name a few.
For more of my photos from the shoot, you can check my Flickr.
Here’s a shot Raymond (Instagram: @raymond_g583) took of us with the little fireworks!
I like this one that Mike (Instagram: @dirty_caliboy_mike) took of me shooting.
There was also some sweet food eating as is an obvious Fourth of July tradition. We were quite lucky that gem had so many hats! Thanks for the selfie, Antonio.
Michelle was bringing a friend we didn’t know, and that friend ended up being Josh. It was a pretty funny surprise. Small world!
gem wore this cute Fourth of July outfit complete with blue wig! Coincidentally, her brother wore pretty much the same outfit (besides the wig). Her family has awesome fashion sense!
We also ate oh-so-much food – barbecue, meats, veggies, fruit, pizza, cheesecake, cake, ice cream, and more! This red, white, and blue ice cream was gem’s masterpiece. It was blueberry ice cream with swirls of strawberry jelly and marshmallow. It was all delicious!
What a fantastic celebration of America!
