Lavender, Violet and Periwinkle | Color Inspiration

Posted by on Jun 27, 2014 in Color Inspiration, Photo Sessions | 0 comments

    I have always been a purple lover. I am not a pink and yellow girl. I am the purple and blue girl. These flowers in the Botanical Garden at the Riverbanks Zoo were stunning. The colors so vibrant. You will see in the color swatch below that the last color is a shade of periwinkle. When first looking at these flowers you don’t see the shade of blue in them, but its there and very distinctly on a few of the stems. I wouldn’t paint my walls these colors. Although I might paint my walls a very light gray with a lavender hue. I would wear these colors. Actually, now that i’m thinking about it, I have an outfit that fits these colors...

Green & White Color Inspiration

Posted by on Jun 4, 2014 in Color Inspiration, DIY, Fashion, My Life, Old Window Frame, Photo Sessions | 4 comments

I am so excited about this weeks color inspiration combination of Green and White. Green & White feels like a classic to me. Different shades of colors come and go but Green and White are 2 of those colors that are beautiful through any change of color fads. I love spring/summer when everything is lush and green. I could spend all day planting and picking flowers or sitting in a beautiful garden. If you want to bring your love of the outdoors inside, use combinations of Green, White and Brown. My general rule is that every room needs a live plant and my weakness it green plants. It brings life to the room. If you plan to use these colors for your next photo session,...

Colors of the Zoo | Color Inspiration for Your Photo Session or DIY Project

Posted by on May 29, 2014 in Color Inspiration, Photo Sessions | 0 comments

I visited the Riverbanks Zoo in Columbia, SC last week with my Dad, Mom, Sisters, Niece & Nephew. I am not sure when the last time was that I was at the zoo. I’m pretty sure about 7 years ago we went to see the lights at Christmas time, but its been at least 10 years since I have been to the zoo and actually saw animals. I was pretty excited about visiting the zoo again for 2 reasons – #1: The babies were here! So much fun to go to the zoo with the niece and nephew. #2: I have never been to the Botanical garden that the Riverbanks zoo added on several years ago. Today’s color inspiration comes to you from the sites at the Riverbanks Zoo. If you...

Vintage Color Inspiration | Antique Cups | Color Inspiration

Posted by on Apr 25, 2014 in Color Inspiration, Photo Sessions | 0 comments

  I have a little bit of vintage color inspiration for you today. This picture is filled with special meaning to me. A cup, saucer and plate from my grandmother. A set of bowls from Kevin’s grandma. A cup and saucer souvenir from Romania. Whatever country or era they come from, the colors mix well together and I love this photo of them. These colors would be great for a vintage themed wedding or party. You could use these colors for an extended family photo shoot. Mix-n-Match these colors with white, ivory and khaki for beautiful beach photos. Or, you could use these colors for a vintage themed baby room.¬†What would you do with these colors? Or possibly you...

Color Inspiration | All About Neutrals

Posted by on Mar 29, 2014 in Color Inspiration, Photo Sessions | 2 comments

I love color. In fact, if I have the choice between a B & W photo or one in Color, I will usually (9 times out of 10) pick Color. I like color in clothes as well. I tend to pick the darker/royal colors over bright colors. As much as i like color, I like to mix neutrals. I used to be scared to wear white on white. I definitely wouldn’t mix white with ivory. NEVER. I felt like they didn’t match. I’ve changed my tune a little. I will wear an all white outfit and mix white and ivory and I love it. I feel like an important way to do this is to add texture – ruffles, lace patterns. The mixing if Neutrals is so fresh and clean. Also, very feminine....
