I hope you are having an awesome summer! We welcome you to part 1 of the Swimwear Guide for 2011. Due to some logistical problems we are having to break it up this year. But, that doesn’t mean it’s any less awesome. We have some really great swimwear for you this year and hope you go out and buy some.
This guide features a new model named Ben. If you are a Facebook fan/like of UNB you saw the behind the scenes pics I took with my iPhone at the shoot. Now you get to see the good pics! We will be doing a profile on him in the next week so you will find out all about him. I also want to thank Brian Kaiser of Seven Continents to stepping up to the plate and taking the pics on a great day at Lake Lanier here in Georgia. Actually they were take the day the rapture was to happen, but all turned out well!
I hope you enjoy this and look for the next installment very soon
