Coca-Cola Pics

This weekend we got an old fashioned coca-cola bottle, put some daisies in our hair, and had a photoshoot. It was really fun, and any one can do it! I've attached some of the pictures that we took. 

Tip** Take pictures in the late afternoon before sunset, when the sun is lower in the sky, and you can get the cool affect of backlighting. 

Have a great week:)
