We had the joy of taking a week long trip to our favorite family friendly beach resort outside of Charleston, Wild Dunes, a few weeks ago. Both of our boys are at the absolute BEST ages for the beach (G is almost 2 and L is 4 1/2) and they could have played in the sand and ocean all day long if we had let them. We ate endless popsicles, ice cream, and junk food; stayed up past our bedtime; took epic afternoon naps; and even assembled a 1000 piece puzzle (well, really 996 pieces because it was missing 4 pieces!). I think one of my most favorite parts is having unlimited time each day to capture my kids in their happiest element... no schedules or places to be, no rushing out the door, no mom or dad having to work, just present, (mostly) happy, and in their kid element! I brought four different kinds of cameras with me, and these are just the images I captured from my dslr! I also had my phone camera, our fujifilm instax, some black and white disposable film cameras, and a "go pro" knock off I purchased on amazon (can you tell I have a true photography obsession, ha!). It is truly my favorite week of the year! (***See the next paragraph for an exciting JPP announcement!***)
***Also, now that we are back from vacation, I'm in full fall busy season mode. If you want to be the first to know my fall availability as well as mini session dates, be sure to sign up for the Jenny Perry Photography email list. I'll be sending out those dates via email THIS WEEK, so don't miss out!
I love how these popsicle photos turned out. I walked outside from our air conditioned house into the heat and humidity of the lowcountry. My lens immediately fogged up and would not completely dissipate. I decided to begin shooting anyways, and it made for such a beautiful haze on the outer edges of the photographs. These are just a sampling, but I love them!
