ABOUT ME

I believe in laughter... I believe in warm summer nights... I believe in the miracle of life... I believe in running barefoot chasing lightnin bugs... I believe in toothless giggles, and messy hair... I believe childhood is magical... I believe life is beautiful... I believe you can never have too many pictures... I believe in capturing life... I believe pictures should tell stories... -YOUR STORY-

Photo of me & my babies taken by the talented Rachel May.

The story of the magic of summer

First set of pig tails ….

and realizing just how big she looks with them.

Playing out back on the swing set…

leaving your shoes behing and running. barefoot.

Dirt stained toes….

Backyard baseball….

Waiting for dark…

crickets chirping & frogs singing…

the magic of watching for that first lightnin’ bug…

chasing it…

& finally being old enough to catch one…..

watching them flicker.

The golden hour…

& how light skims the hair.

New bathing “soups”

Fun in the water hose for hours…

how water runs to the edge of her curls & drips onto her bare skin….

sudden tantrums when the water hose is stolen…

skinned up elbows from play…

freshly mowed grass & how it sticks to wet skin…

fudge pops on the front steps….

silly fudge pop mustaches….

soggy toes & tan lines.

no bed time.

This is the story of the magic…

of summer.

& how I want to stay like this… forever.

Ever see a photographer who starts out with a 365 day project, or even a 52 week project and never finishes? Yeah, me too. Well, I recently joined a group of a few other busy photographers who decided to commit to a 12 month project! If we fail this, we’ll be taking donations for a time management seminar. The best part is that it will be totally candid, lifestyle shots of each of our own families/lives. We don’t even have to dredge up random people or make our kids pose for us. We’re calling the series “The Story of ________” and we’ll each be filling in our own blanks. At the end of this post is a link to another photographer who participated and she’ll be linking to someone else. It’s a whole big circle of stories in pictures. Click through and enjoy!

Please head on over to Nicole McClung-Ridella, to see her story this month.
