Braids & Bikinis 4th of July

Braids & Bikinis 4th of July

This past Saturday Morgan Newton and I spent the day shooting 6 new series for Braids & Bikinis! I had an assembled an amazing team of brands and models to work with for the day. We spent all day hurrying to finish in time for the most perfect sunset series with sparklers!

Rikka is a Los Angeles based model who's wearing the red one-piece by Malai Swimwear! All swimsuits from this series is provided our favorite Carpinteria surf shop Rincon Designs. Emily is wearing a two piece bikini by O'Neil and Jordan is wearing a gorgeous bikini by Vitamin A swim! As soon as I walked in to Rincon Designs that was the first suit I saw for the shoot and knew I needed it! All models are wearing jewelry provided by Thalken and temporary tattoos by INKED! by Dani! 

Since we were rushing to shoot this series as the sun went down the braids turned from more complicated to the most simple of braids! Rikka is in the red suit with two French fishtail braids connected in the back by one fishtail braid! Jordan has her hair half up with a five strand braid and Emily has two milkmaid rope braids! This shoot was all I imagined it to be and more! 

Happy 4th of July from BB!
