We Love Summer!

It’s starting to get really hot out. Most adults try to avoid the heat as much as possible but, kids sometime seem completely unaffected by it. What is it about being young that gives kids the energy to have fun in any situation? Maybe it’s there active imaginations? Maybe it’s their naïveté? It could be a combination of both? Whatever the case, kids definitely know how to make the most out of their recreational time. Here’s a perfect example. I spotted kids outside enjoying their summer, trying to cool off in the intense July heat. What’s the best way to stay outside and stay cool at the same time? Water! Kids love summer and they love to splash around in the water. Walking past these children playing makes me instantly nostalgic thinking back to my own childhood. It’s a shame that growing up steals so much of this innocent joy from our lives. As I close my eyes and listen to the sounds of the children having fun I can’t help but wish that it was me and my best friends all over again. Just being outside, living, totally unconcerned with the heat and relishing every moment of our free time together.

Happy Holidays to everyone! I met these 4 young men while out shooting with a model one day over the summer. They explained to me that they’re a rap group but, that they were also willing to do whatever they could to make it, even basketball. I let them know that they can achieve anything they put their minds to and to never limit themselves. They asked if I was a photographer, and I replied yes. They proceeded to quickly huddle together to give me their best poses. I snapped a couple of frames and showed them the pics on the lcd. They LOVED the pics, thanked me kindly, and I wished them all good luck and success in whatever they choose to do. I love meeting good people of all ages, and photography allows me to do so all while making a brief connection in the process.
