Summer Colors | Bloomington Senior Portraiture

I know summer is coming to a close, but I wanted to make sure to get this gorgeous, color-filled post onto the blog to bid summer farewell. This was another stylized shoot featuring my incredible senior reps, and they were AMAZING! They each wore bold, modern pieces that suited a garden theme. You can find lots of similar pieces at Francesca’s, one of our favorite clothing boutiques with affordable and cute items. I loved the red dress with the scalloped edge, and 
those black floral wedges. 

Not only did they rock every pose and outfit, they also crafted that backdrop themselves! We utilized flower chains and wide, colored ribbons to create the dreamy, bright background. 

Want to make one of your own? Here’s what you’ll need:
-Wooden dowel (or an area to tie the ribbons/flowers). 
-Wide sheer ribbons in various lengths. Measure where you’ll be hanging them to make sure you have enough. 
-Hot glue to secure the knots.

Measure your ribbon and flowers and trim to the correct length. Try to vary each strip/chain so that the bottom is uneven and has more of a boho look. Tie each item to the dowel, and secure with hot glue. This would be a super cute craft for a birthday party backdrop or even a wedding or graduation party!
