Is anyone else’s summer going by super fast?! Ours is. Surprisingly. Its hard to believe that we are now over half way through July and before you know it we’ll be sending the kids back to school!
I’ve been meaning to blog about our family’s summer adventures for a while now but between sessions and having the kids home with me all day (and trying to keep them busy!), its rare that I have the time to dedicate to blogging these past couple of weeks! To tell you the truth, we actually haven’t been doing anything out-of-this-world amazing. Our family tends to lay low a bit during the summer to accommodate for my schedule (it’s the busy season!) but also because our kids are so young that they are just content with simple things like bike rides, splash pads and strawberry picking. So why ruin a good thing?
I’ve decided to make this summer a mostly “instant summer”, meaning that most of how I’m capturing my kids is using my iPhone or Instax camera. Why? Well if you want the honest truth, its a pain in the butt to lug around my 5D MarkII and 24-70L lens with me everywhere I go. Aside from it being heavy and expensive, I just get tired of babysitting it when I’d really rather be participating in the activities with my family. So with the exception of a few situations when I just can’t leave it at home, this summer shall be known as the Instant Summer! I may even put together a little album to have printed if I end up with enough images!
Hope you are all having an AMAZING summer!! And whether you have a fancy-schmancy camera, or just a cell phone with a camera – don’t forget to capture some of your fun summer memories with your own family!
