4th of July Inspiration Shoot

Last year I got to photograph an amazing Mad Men inspired 4th of July shoot. It was such an amazing shoot that it was featured on 100 Layer Cakelet, but I couldn’t help but share it again this year. I have had the privilege of photographing a few shoots designed by Lauren Bailey over at @youknowyouneedit, and her work never disappoints. Here is how she described her inspiration behind the design, “Inspired by the genius of Mad Men and it’s final season, I wanted to couple that with my love for all things Americana and create a retro Fourth of July dream party. I sourced almost all of the vintage tableware from the 1960’s playing with red, white, and blue patterns to create a fun and patriotic mid century feel. I am so intrigued by this decade and it was so neat to be able to relive some moments with these pieces during this project!”
