Moodboard Monday: A Red Hot Summer!

Hey, everyone!

Tatiana here to introduce you to this exciting new blog series:

#moodboardmonday

I love looking at moodboards with different aesthetics to brighten my day, refresh my mind, and inspire me!

What the heck’s a moodboard? Let me slap you with some definitions!

A “moodboard” is an arrangement of images, materials, pieces of text, etc., intended to evoke or project a particular style or concept.

Different images, colors, or phrases can all create one big MOOD.

And wouldn’t ya know it!? I happen to have a plethora of images to create moodboards to share with you lovely people. ❤

This week’s theme is:

Summer!

With the weather in July being at a record high average in the 100s, it’s been a SCORCHER! Right now, Summer reminds me of sunburns, gross bugs buzzing all around me, and sweat. Oh man … the sweat.

So, I’m going to change my mood around with this summer moodboard I created with the positive aspects of summertime whilst sipping on some nice cool water in the A/C.

Traveling:

Japanese Tea Garden 7

I think the best part of Summer is the chance to travel! The most traveled months are generally in the summertime when the kiddos are out of school and you just want to get away.

I didn’t travel to Japan as the focal picture may imply, although that’s still very much #goals. I did, however, visit the Japanese Tea Gardens in San Francisco!

Now, you’re probably thinking, “wait, she went to San Francisco and she’s not featuring the Golden Gate Bridge” …

Oh, we went there too! The 40 MPH winds were also very present so just getting onto the bridge was a win for me. Artistic photos? Not happening when my camera is my livelihood and the wind could literally knock it out of my hands into the Pacific!

There’s also another reason for not adding this iconic shot to the board. The main color theme of this moodboard is reds with gold/green accents. As much as I would love to have added the staple tourist location of San Fran into this moodboard, the Golden Gate Bridge is super red but the main color scheme surrounding it is blue, which doesn’t go with the mood we’re trying to create! Sorry, GG. Maybe next time!

Weddings:

Getting Ready 29

When we get booked for Summer weddings, we thank the heavens for indoor venues.

This board definitely needed a lounging flower girl to represent my inner couch potato this summer. I don’t even need to make it to a pool; the humidity has be drowning. Amirite?

Food:

Hannibal 8

Any season comes with their signature meals: Bar-b-ques for family cookouts, watermelon at the poolside, and that good ol’ American apple pie.

Of course, you can’t make an apple pie without fresh apples from the farmers market!

If you’re up for a little stroll on a weekend morning, go visit the River Market in KC for the regions largest farmers market. There’s also the Steamboat Arabia museum for when you need to move your adventure indoors as the temperatures rise.

School’s Out:

Halee Senior Photo 7

Summer also marks bittersweet ends and new beginnings as our younger audience transitions from one grade to the next – or from a high school to a campus for our seniors!

No Summer moodboard would be complete without the feeling of accomplishment and freedom we remember as kids when the final bell rang.

The scene in “Grease” where they throw all their papers and books in the air is a BIG mood!

Just the opportunity to sleep in is something to be celebrated in itself!
