Summer Of Photos

I know that summer isn't technically over yet. But a lot of kids are going back to school this week and next week. Once everyone is back in school, I just feel like summer is over and begin to break out my fall essentials. This summer I've really focused a lot more on my camera and branching out by using various settings to photograph things. I've really learned a lot about my camera lately, but there's always room to grow with it as well! I have taken so many pictures this summer, more than ever and I love it. So I figured that I'd share some photos of my summer thus far in honor of classes being back in session.

May 2013

Fires and cooking out are always huge during the summer at my house.

This summer overall has been fabulous. The weather hasn't been on my side (rain and chilly temps all summer!) but that hasn't stopped it from being great. I've spent a lot of time with wonderful people making memories that will last a lifetime. No matter how much I dread winter, I'm excited for fall especially because of Strala training next month!

Thanks for taking the time to read this blog over the summer, I look forward to sharing my fall, winter, spring, etc. adventures with all of you :)
