photographing my own family during summer | shaker heights, ohio lifestyle photographer

Believe it or not, it's really hard for me to photograph my own family lately. After I capture wonderful moments for other families and spend so much time editing , mailing and taking care of details, the last thing I want to do is pick up my camera to make even more work for myself. Plus carrying my big camera around along with the other load I already have makes it hard too! This is not good, because I strongly believe that is how I will grow creatively. It's through the mistakes, the unplanned that magic happens on camera!

Life has been busy around here. School is out and I am left with the super hard task of keeping my four year old entertained enough! Who would of thought it would be so challenging! My one year old has been crawling for half his life already and we are all waiting for him to walk. I tell you though, he is soooo fast on all fours though so why would he want to slow down to learn something new :) 

We have an amazing trip coming up in August. I will make it a point to capture as many beautiful, wonderful and happy or not so happy moments (because those have a beauty too) as I can! But for now I will try to get some fun July summer memories as well!
