cobalt | classic red | amethyst [ color inspiration ]

The last few weeks I have been posting inspiration boards that are full of soft elegant colors. This week I was inspired by the image on the right and felt it was about time to have another post with rich bold colors. So this week I have a bold palette full of cobalt blue, classic red and amethyst purple. [ Enjoy ]

Knudson Family [ portraits + maternity ]

Meet the Knudson Family. Angie and I went to high school together and I am so glad she introduced me to her growing family. Carl and Angie just light up when they’re around their 18-month-old son, Silas. How can they not, he’s such a little charmer. Incredible blue eyes, adorable red hair and the biggest smile. He naturally lights up a room. While he captures your attention, I am certain the baby arriving soon will too.

We did their session in their home because well, it was still freezing cold here, which meant outside wasn’t much of an option. And of course because it’s them. Silas is comfortable there and so are they. Without any further explanation needed… [ Enjoy! ]

Peacock | Raspberry | Gold [ color inspiration ]

This weeks palette of Peacock, Raspberry and Gold is ranking pretty high on my love list! I guess it isn’t much of a surprise since Peacock and Raspberry were basically two colors from my wedding, but still. This trio with Gold is beautiful. Not to mention, Gold is huge this year. I hope you enjoy this palette. [ Enjoy! ]

anderson family [ portraits ]

Meet the Anderson Family. This is my good friend Deanna’s maternal aunt and her family. A snippet pulled from Carrie Jo’s CaringBridge Page: Carrie Jo was diagnosed with stage 4 breast cancer, and cancer in her bones on June 7, 2012.  Her journey is now 16 months long. After a few close calls from death last winter, she is doing well in spite of the many effects of the cancer and resulting paraplegia. [ Time out. Can I just say cancer is a terrible terrible thing. Not like you didn’t know. Okay, time in. ] Last week Carrie Jo contacted me about doing a family shoot for keepsakes for her family. Without a doubt, I said yes. These photos are a sneak peek from their session.  [ Enjoy ]

This is Kelvin, Steve, Carrie Jo & Vincent. The Andersons.
