personal 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!

HBP Color Project | Champaign + UIllinois photography project

I have envisioned this personal project for YEARS and finally made it happen in June of this year.  I scouted locations for months and am thrilled with the results.  A model call on my Facebook page helped me find two couples to model for me on two separate evenings.  At first I thought we would repeat a couple locations, but I had enough spots that we didn't have to do any repeats.  My dream above all with this was to have a rainbow grid on my Instagram feed, but I also had a ton of fun with posing the couples and editing these images.  I realized a huge part of my brand is COLOR, and so this project was the perfect way jumpstart that aspect of my branding!  Enjoy!! Want to book your own colorful session or enjoy these poses (or both??)?  Contact me today to book your wedding or engagement session! 217-737-0971
