This pic was taken at the start of summer in San Diego. It’s still the fav. – she’s rockn’ it whenever possible.
I’m posting this now because I’m just feeling kind of lucky at this moment that we are still living like it’s summertime. I normally would not slow down to appreciate this beautiful weather so much but I’m caught up in it right now simply because I had plans to be in Minnesota this week. At the very last moment I cancelled the trip due to weather (snow…rain…gray skies…cold). I had 5 photo sessions set up and the weather just wasn’t right for good outdoor photography…so, instead I am at home in the Arizona sunshine. Flip-flops. 80-90 degree temps. Outdoor swimming. Mini golf. Hula hooping. Evening walks with my fam. Light (always a photog’s essential ingredient).
Don’t get me wrong. I am so bummed to miss the opportunity to photograph the wonderful families in Minnesota. I have been so excited about this trip for weeks and had awesome ideas for each of the families on my sceduele. Although I had to cancel for now, I am sooooo looking forward to next time. For now, I am glad to be home in Arizona — where there is light. It’s not so much about the weather for me (I typically avoid the sun and hide in the shade at all costs) — but it’s all about the light. When there is light, I can be outside shooting. And that’s my thing.
