Spring Please? | A Photo Recipe {Idaho Falls Photographer}

Has anyone seen spring? It was here for a minute, then it ran away and left a fresh six inches of snow in it's wake! Sheesh! I've been missing the fresh, warm air of spring so I busted out some images from a hike we took last spring. I love photographing all the tiny little wild flowers when we're in the mountains. They are so tiny that it's easy to overlook them, but when you get closer and study them you'll find that they are gorgeous and so intricately detailed. It's fascinating!

I decided to have some fun today with this image, giving it a lot of texture to help the flowers pop. I used Kupukupu (Kalani Collection, Overlay, 27%), Bells of Ireland (Botanical Collection, Soft Light, 87%), Pomegranate (Botanical Collection, Soft Light, 22%), & Makawao (Kalani Collection, Color Dodge, 32%). I told you I was having fun. ;) What do you think? Too much? Not enough? Here's to wishing spring back!

Barnes Kids {Idaho Falls Family Children Photographer}

I got to spend an hour with these awesome kids, getting a few shots to tide their mama over until they can do family photos in the summer. They grow up so fast! The girls were awesome and so easy to work with. The boys were boys...rowdy and so much fun to coax a few fun pictures from. Take a look at these four fun siblings, and stay tuned for more of the whole family this spring! :)
