One of my favorite photography things to do while traveling, is studying and watching for the yummy light. I always challenge my eyes and mind to study the details. I constantly take in my surroundings and challenge myself photographically. Being with family in Jackson Hole, WY at the end of summer, was a great time to relax, but also to casually photograph for myself. It's an interesting perspective when you let go and photograph with no real expectations. Now that we are settled back into a school routine in Fairhope, I love going through my personal work and seeing what I captured. These are some of my standout detail images from our end-of-summer-last-hurrah trip.
My very pregnant sister-in-law invited me to Pensacola for a storytelling documentary session. We walked their neighborhood, had lunch at Jerry's Drive In and worked on a family photograph for their Christmas card. She's beautiful inside/out, pregnant/not pregnant. I adore that she asked me to hang out with them with my camera in tow- just to capture them being them. A milestone moment that is documented. I wish everyone would do this. I crave this kind of photograghy- casual, candid, natural and honest. It's as if time stood still that afternoon.
