color project

Hadley | Yellow sunshine & lemons session

This shoot all started with a $5 dress from Walmart. I kept saying for a couple months that I needed to get her outside with a bowl of lemons to complete the look. It finally warmed up and we found a vibrant yellow wall for the backdrop. My friend Kristin came along with me and shot film while I shot digital. Hadley had fun I think, especially when we let her throw the lemon, and once she got into it and started doing her own poses and strutting. Haha! Her hair was still slightly curly from her preschool graduation the night before!

Love this little girl, her gummy smile, her affection, and her independence. She’s our little Bug-bug (morphed from Hadley-bug & H-bug) and we love her to pieces! Max gets his own shoot soon!

Kenzie | Tween rainbow color session

My friend Kristin is a fellow photographer, and we often daydream about session ideas that are rolling around in our brains. Her daughter Kenzie loves all things rainbow, and Kristin had previously done a session with her on a light blue wall, but wanted to do an extra session with all different colors of painted walls. She loved my painted wall project from a couple summers ago, and so we set out with a new map and a timeline and made it happen!

We were able to find the 6 main color wheel colors — red, orange, yellow, green, blue, & purple. We did have a few challenges in that it ended up being a bit chilly that evening, and the sun wasn’t always quite where we’d prefer for it to be. We love how the images turned out though, and we especially liked seeing the juxtaposition of my digital versions versus Kristin’s film versions.
