Jan15 Spring Showers 2014

I know it’s a bit early to talk about Spring and see photos containing bright colors, green trees and sunshine… but here’s a shower that I just had to show you, and hopefully it will add a bit of spring to your winter day.

Designed and Photographed by: Melissa Oholendt

From Melissa:  I designed & photographed an adorable chic & colorful French-themed baby shower for one of my best friends, Faith Brue. Faith & her sweet family had recently moved into a gorgeous home in the Lake Minnetonka area with the most beautifully blue pool you had ever seen. So, instead of hosting the shower indoors, we decided to take advantage of the weather and host an outdoor pool party themed after Faith’s favorite vacation destination, France.

Her invitations were designed with a soft pink watercolor & calligraphy front as a nod to Provence’s design sense and sassy black/white stripe back to bring in Paris’s chic & modern style and carried both patterns throughout the food labels & bar signage.

Here are some lovely details from Lindsay

The inspiration for Everett’s nursery came from my husband and I’s love of hiking and camping.  We went to Yellowstone and Grand Teton National parks for our babymoon.  We bought the maps, arrow and bear stuffed animal at their visitor centers.  The Amish made rocking chair was passed down to me; My Dad gave it to my Mom when she was pregnant with me.  I made seat cushions using Sarah Watts Timber & Leaf Fawn fabric in Grey.  The baby quilt was handmade by me using Oh Deer! by Momo charm squares (tutorial on my blog. I also made his crib sheet using Sarah Watson Indian Summer Menagerie fabric in Timberwolf.   We bought the Minnetonka moccasin booties in Jackson Hole, WY (while on our babymoon).  The deer painting was done by Bobby Spillman (a friend of ours and local artist).  The accent wall paint is Wish Upon A Star by Farrell Calhoun.  “Everett” banner was made by my best friend for my baby shower.  Baby booties & knotted beanie by Nature Baby in fable print.

Jan12 Art Maternity 2014

This is such a clever idea for a maternity photo shoot. Part of the session took place in the couples house in Washington, D.C. and the other part of their session took place in the east building of the National Gallery of Art.

Jan09 A farming family 2014

Ross & Rebecca of Many Fold Farm (which you absolutely must check out) recently had their second daughter.  They were highschool sweethearts and decided they wanted to farm together, so they did a lot of research and training and made their dream come true- chickens, sheep, cheese and all.

The photography is to DIE for. It’s amazing! We love you Ali Harper. I am obsessed with all the daddy/daughter photos.
