I wish… actually I am just now getting around to editing some of my vacation photos from back in July. Every year my mom, sister and I take a girls trip down to the beach, gulf shores to be exact. We go to find a little relaxation and rest and just escape from it all. Don’t get me wrong snuggling little babies is the highlight of my day, and I wouldn’t trade it for the world! That being said editing a whole session for almost 24 hours straight with a little sleep in between there and getting pooped and peed on isn’t the best part of the day. It’s a job hazard and snuggling sweet babies’ makes it all better, but going to the beach helps me to be able to come back and have my patience about me to be able to do it all over again!
You would think as a photographer every day I wouldn’t want to take my camera with me on vacation, but that’s not true! In fact it’s the exact opposite! When I go on vacation I want to take my camera with me so that I can take creative images and regain some of my original spunk for color and life without having to worry about whether this blanket matches this wrap, lol. I love being able to capture life on film, and not have to worry about posing just capture it as it happens! The tides coming in from the rain out on the ocean, to the crabs running across the sandy beach, to the wild pelicans up against an amazing brightly colored sunset, it’s enough to make anyone fall in love with life and the wonderful world we have around us all over again!
I feel like when I’m at the beach I can leave my phone in the room and walk out onto that warm sand and take a deep breath and sigh the sigh of relief and relaxation. The sigh of not having to worry about a thing in the world but the right there and right now…. When I look at my images it’s like taking me back to a time of no shoes and no worries, just the sand in between my toes and the sun on my nose! Lol just writing this blog I can hear the tide coming in and the birds in the air, so close your eyes with me and lets go to the beach….
