Stripes and Lollis

Bringing you another set of photos that Lynnette and I shot right before we left for camp :)

First thing: I LOVE THE COLORS IN THESE PHOTOS. Sorry to scream, but just I really, really do. She noticed this spot as we were walking by, and suggested we take some shots there. I have never noticed this place before, and it is 5 minutes from my apartment! The red and turquoise look magical together. Remember this location... I'll be using it a lot in the future!

Also, I had this lollipop that I bought forever ago, and finally decided to use it as a prop. I'm a big fan of using props in photo shoots, as you can see here, here, and here. Matt isn't though, so it's always fun when I find someone who is more willing to play along. I think the lollipop helped add to the whimsical, retro vibe we had going on :)
