Did you know that today is National Ice Cream Soda Day? It sounds like a perfectly logical summer celebration to us, and when we heard about it, we decided to search the web for fantastic and inspiring ice cream photos to share with you. From fun lifestyle family sessions to whimsical stylized ice cream parties, we hope you will enjoy these photos.
Find an old-fashioned ice cream parlor or diner.
There is just something fun about old-fashioned ice cream parlors and diners! From the black and white floor tiles to the vinyl upholstered stools and cute iron table sets, these vintage locations are just begging for a photo shoot.
If you don’t have a fun ice cream parlor or diner near you, you can style your own.
Hire an ice cream truck.
For a fun day of mini-sessions, why not hire an ice cream truck? Kids love ice cream and you are sure to get lots of smiles!
Plan an ice cream party.
This adorable party session by Angie Arthur Photography was ice cream-themed right down to the ice cream bubbles party favors! Check out Angie’s blog for some yummy frozen treat ideas to serve at your party.
This darling ice cream party includes an ice cream parlor photo booth creatively constructed out of a refrigerator box by Leonie of Ashley Rae.com.
We love this vintage ice cream soda party styled by Jen Foster of Z’s the Day Photography and Design!
Need some help to plan your stylized ice cream party session?
Celebrations at Home has some great ideas on their blog for setting up an ice cream soda bar.
If you are worried about the ice cream melting, these cotton candy ice cream cones by Living Locurto would be the perfect mess-free substitute.
And of course, you’ll want to have coordinated party printables to give your ice cream-themed party that finished touch. Amy Locurto has some adorable printables in her shop.
Enjoy your favorite summertime frozen treat!
