Documentary Family Photography – Personal
Being a birth worker, I’m typically always on call, and depending when due dates line up taking one month off doesn’t give you very much off-call time to relax, turn off your phone, or enjoy a short vacation. I had planned taking off for July and got lucky with a full 3 weeks of off call time, so we took advantage of it and went out of town for 10 days!
During our trip out of town, we went to a Lake near Victoria, Texas with my sister’s family and a whole bunch of her friends. I debated back and forth on whether or not I wanted to take my camera with me… because 1) it’s not cheap to replace it if it touches water, 2) I really enjoy putting down the camera to enjoy the moment happening in front of me. Sometimes being focused on making pictures takes away from enjoying life as it is… but, I packed it up just in case. And thank God I did! The sky was just absolutely beautiful, the sun was in a perfect position, and the kids were all having so much fun that these perfect pictures kept coming up in front of me!
Scroll down to enjoy some summer fun! While my first reaction is to not take out my real camera, I am so happy I did this day. I think I’ll be making a new personal goal to take my camera with me places so I actually have proof that we went out had lived our life.
