RETROLUX

Hello. project 2015 continues and we have reached wk. 035. project 2015 showcases a different photo filter/style weekly. This week I used the filter Retrolux from the app Snapseed. Snapseed was one of the firsts photo filters apps that I used. This week I wanted a more scratchy vintage look with muted tones that feel more oldies style. With my time off, I’ve been fortunate to see my mom friends + their adorable kids.  I love it – feels like a real summer! Here is a glimpse of my week…

I just realized its been a minute since I’ve done a graphic design post. I absolutely love Graphic Design. I get inspired daily by beautiful imagery I see in my daily life. In a recent pinning spree on Pinterest I found myself pinning Vintage Japanese Matchbook Prints. They are so wonderful and inspiring and exude the colors and designs of the 1920-1940 Art Deco style. Some look like they came straight out of a Paris Jazz club with a slight naughty undertone. Here is a glimpse of these gorgeous vintage matchbooks…

photo shoot // Lady Blue

This past Sunday afternoon, I had a photo shoot for my dear friend {Molly} and Lady Blue.  Lady Blue is the name of Molly’s 1983 Volvo.  Vintage Volvos are very special to Molly’s family from generation to generation.  A few months ago, when Molly and I were at a Sounder’s game {GO SOUNDERS!}, she mentioned that she wanted to do a special photo shoot with Lady Blue with a vintage inspired feel and even recreate photos similar to her grandma – in pose, attire, and surroundings.  We had such an amazing time taking pictures. It was the perfect Seattle day. Here is a glimpse of some of my favorite shots from the photo shoot…
