Alicia Bock Photography

Alicia Bock photography captivates me. I love her style, composition, and color palette. Most of all, I love her eye, the ability she has to see something beautiful in things you may otherwise overlook as you’re out strolling around.
Her latest nature-inspired series, “Through the Viewfinder“, (above) is now available in her Etsy store. Soft, organic, each gives you that feeling of nostalgia, perhaps it’s how she captures the light. They have this vintage quality to them that I find so appealing.

All of her photos are magical; transporting you back to simpler times. Your 1st family trip to the amusement park, peering up at the massive ferris wheel, a mixture of excitement and fear because today was the day you’d ride it with your father (I speak from experience!). A wide open field where you ran until you collapsed with your first love, both of you promising ‘forever + ever’ as you tumbled and giggled beneath the summer sky.

You can visit Alicia’s blog or view her online portfolio on her website. I hope you enjoy her work as much I do. With notecards and photography priced between $3.50-24.00, and a few that are slightly higher, there is something for every budget.

Psst: She ships to international buyers, too!

Her work fits in so nicely with the naturalist look, doesn’t it?

Jen Renninger Illustrator + Designer

Jen Renninger wrote in about her illustrative work and I was aglow. What talent! As a freelance editorial illustrator and long time closet designer, Jen has been working on her own collection of pillows, prints, and home accessories to compliment her illustration business. I can’t wait to see her home collection because I love her style and color palette already. Her website will be up and running in a week or so (bookmark it), but here’s a sneak peak of some of her illustrative work, to whet your appetite for what is to come. This lady is one to watch.

Inspiration Saturday

Inspiration can come from anywhere. Usually the least likely objects, places, events, people, sounds, smells, etc. make me feel the most creative, energetic, and passionate. From gorgeously decorative cupcakes to amusement parks rides, here are some images that I’m hoping will stimulate your creativity today. Enjoy!
