I had the opportunity to do a photo shoot this week, despite the fact that I don’t usually do that anymore.
It was a nice change of scenery.
The nature park and botanical gardens where I’ve taken so many pictures before was more vibrant and alive and colorful than ever. Or it least it seemed so this week. It was a gorgeous day…too early to be too hot or muggy.
The family that I photographed is one of my favorite long-term clients (again…I don’t do this for just anybody anymore) and there was something rejuvenating about walking around the beautiful gardens and capturing as much beauty as I could in an hour. I mostly took pictures of their little 4 year old girl…but I couldn’t help snapping pictures of the mama goose and her goslings or the bird I saw in a tree.
I’m ready for a little bit MORE change of scenery. June and July are full-time travel months for me. I’ll be hitting everywhere from Chicago to Florida to the Grand Canyon in the next several weeks. As much as I’m looking forward to it, though, I have an equal amount of anxiety. There is SO much to do between now and then!
Oh! To be carefree and be able to enjoy these early days of summer for the beautiful, warm, sunshiny weather, the afternoons at the pool and the evening walks on the weekend.
Soon. MY carefree summer days are coming soon.
What have you been up to this week? Now it’s time for YOU to show me your best shots from this past week. Link up below and have a fantastic weekend!

Lovely pics! I’m excited to see all your photos from your summer adventures. My son is still in school for another week but we have been enjoying some really nice weather for a while now.

We have been outside a lot just enjoying the weather in our yard and the local parks. The kids have been excited to go swimming soon once the pool is ready.
I’m gearing up for the last week of school! Can’t wait for summer vacation :)

Beautiful pictures! We just went on vacation and it took about two weeks to gather and pack for our adventure.
