July 4th

I love the Fourth of July!!  Each year I look forward to the displays and trying to capture the spirit of the holiday.

This year we viewed Vermillion's show from a friend's yard.

My brother and his fiance are getting married next year.  They requested a few portraits with fireworks.  We all enjoy setting them off in our yard each year.  And I love an opportunity to do something a little bit different.

Fireworks takes some planning and patience.  And, if you can swing it, an extra set of hands.  I was glad that our neighbor was over.  She offered to help me by lighting the fountains.  I was able to stay with the camera, ready to shoot as soon as the pieces were lit.
We still have a stash of fireworks that we didn't shoot off.  I hope to do a few more poses this summer.  I have some ideas burning to get out.  I hope that everyone had a wonderful 4th!
