boats & berries

Springfield, MO photographer MandyLynneSummer has been beautiful this year. I’m not ready for it to end.
One of our favorite hangouts is a river a few miles from our house.
It’s perfect for swimming, floating, fishing, picnics.. and boat races.
At some point Autumn’s sail broke on hers, so we repaired with a stick and burlap.
The flowers are my favorite. She knows how to make everything pretty. :)

Moonrise Kingdom with Danielle Thompson

Danielle ThompsonI am so excited to share a collaboration with Danielle Thompson!
She is a phenomenally creative force in the craft industry,

creating her vintage Kitchy digital kits for scrapbooking & crafting.

I knew when she contacted me a few months ago that I wanted to capture

her signature colorful style in some special way.

We put our heads together and decided on a “Moonrise Kingdom” movie theme.
Her plan was to give the photos as a birthday gift to her husband, who is a big Wes Anderson fan.

The movie is set back in the 60′s in a quirky,

understated style about an adventure between two runaways.
It has about as much vintage feel as my smitten heart can handle.

Danielle put so much thought and care into all the details of the session.

Her boys were so adorable with their boy scout gear!
Each of the patches on their shirts carries a special meaning.
Their cooperation made the session effortless & fun.  I thoroughly enjoyed it!

We spent some blissful time in the beautiful mountains of Colorado this summer.
Each day was full of happy moments  and summertime fun.
I’ll share more of our trip, but here is a taste of our 4th of July!

I’ve enjoyed this season immensely.
I always look forward to the peonies blooming each May.
They are irresistible and photograph so beautifully.
I’m very glad summer has arrived..
all the fresh fruit, flowers, and produce ripe for picking.  :)

These new prints available in my Etsy shop- Mandy Lynne Imagerie.
