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!

Sitting at my desk editing this sunny session on a dreary day,
and it’s cheering me up!   :-)
We visited family in Oklahoma for a week this summer.
I throughly enjoyed myself watching our kids play together,

eating my cousin’s scrumptious cooking,
sewing, shopping, taking pictures around their mini farm.©MandyLynne One evening we got out and took their family pictures.
Aren’t they adorable?  mmmm…. I love them!

Laundry Day . Mandy Lynne -Springfield MO Photographer

Mother’s Day is this weekend, and my heart is full. :)
I truly LOVE my role as a mother more with each passing year.
Sometimes I wonder how I could have been so lucky?

These children of mine are so sweet & deeply caring, it makes my heart ache sometimes.
It’s important to me that they grow up understanding what true love is.
I want them to know how much I love them, but also how much more deeply God loves them.

Understanding this unconditional love is the best example we have to love others.

I hope you have a special Mother’s day!

I talked husband into manning the camera for this fun session with Autumn & I one afternoon.
I will say, he did a fine job.. so many keepers!  :)  I love a retro laundromat.

(wish I would have tucked my oldest in here too.. what was I thinking?)
