Mint | Sky Blue | Hazelnut [ Color Inspiration ]

A new take for this weeks color inspiration. I’ve fallen a bit behind and you may notice that I don’t post these as regularly. While I’ll still try to get them weekly, we have been very busy. All of these photos are my photos from our recent trip to Puerto Rico. While on vacation, I’ve been enjoying taking photos of doors. Doors are so different locally to internationally. Some are more welcoming than others. Some are on a slope. Some are rounded while some have windows. These three are all from San Juan. I hope to see you again soon with another color inspiration. In the mean time, Enjoy!

Dannhoff Family [ Portraits ]

I am so lucky to have wonderful friends and clients. This family is no different. I have been lucky enough to call Deanna a good friend since we were 15. That’s been half our lives! What a blessing she has been in my life and I can say the same thing about her husband, Zach and their two kids [ my godchildren ] Morgen & Wesley. I just love this family and once again had the pleasure of photographing them. [ Enjoy ]

“Hey, guys, listen up over here. I have a story.” He is so animated and has the cutest little sausage fingers.

Mr. Wesley doesn’t like to be asked to sit still, [ what one-year-old would!? ] so momma stood him up on this ledge and sang the itsy-bitsy spider. It was adorable to see Morgen & Wesley doing the actions with her.

This year they have a new four-legged family member, Trigg. Before they got him Morgen would call Grandma & Grandpa’s dogs “Woofs” and now she acts like a little mommy to “Twigg.”

Puerto Rico – Part 3 [ Travel ]

Last and final post of Puerto rico filled with Beaches and Old Town San Juan! On Wednesday we decided we wanted to try to take the ferry to Culebra and see Flamingo beach (ranked 3rd in the world for most beautiful) and the island. We had heard to arrive early to the ferry port, but 2.5 hours wasn’t enough time to snag tickets. So, we visited a few beaches that day.

First was Seven Seas beach with very calm water.

The we went to the public beach outside of the Wyndham Rio Mar that had a few sea turtle nests. We stayed there for the afternoon and then sunset.

The first night we went to a restaurant where the owner gave us some tips for our time in Puerto Rico. One tip was to take route 187 from Rio Grande to the coast all the way to old town. And we heeded his advice and an adventure it was. I almost got our little Kia Rio stuck in the sand on a beach. Thankfully it was a small enough car that we were able to push it out. Either way it provided some lovely beach pit stops en route to San Juan.

First stop: Bacardi Rum factory. Gotta get it right, right? A free tour and 2 free drinks [ each ] at 10 am. Sounds about right.

After Bacardi we ventured around Old Town San Juan filled with beautiful buildings and some sporatic rain downpours. Which lead to hiding in restaurants or stores until it stopped and hovering over my camera bag so it didn’t get wet. Some cool unique doors from the area.

After the downpour that meant protecting my camera and getting very wet we walked along the lower side of the town.

Puerto Rican’s celebrate the 4th of July by getting the day off and heading to the beach. Sounds familiar, right? They take it up a notch with huge gas grills and scaffolding to store their food for the day. The beaches had lines for hours and when we arrived home, our parking spot was taken!
