First and foremost I have to apologize for the picture overload! I took these during our Spring Break vacation and just felt I needed to share all of them in one post instead of splitting them up.
As I mentioned, I captured these when we headed to San Francisco and then Carmel over Spring Break. It was so beautiful there and it was such a nice getaway. I definitely came back rejuvenated.
I’m also am so very happy because I owe many of these photos that a took from this challenge itself. Normally during vacations and special events I feel like I have to take the most amazing photos…posed, set up and oh so perfect where in the end I’m miserable, not enjoying myself and most importantly, my kids not enjoying themselves and the moment. So this year, I just left all those feelings at home, packed up my camera and just decided to shoot when I felt like it and not to disrupt any of the free-for-all fun happenings that were taking place around me.
For the most part I did it. I just let them frolick around on the beach and in the water. Now being a posed photographer, for me NOT to take a couple posed photos would well…just not be me but I would say that about 80% of the photos I came away from this trip with were all lifestyle which in turn made me happy and made them happy as well.
So I give your “What Spring Break 2012 Looks Like”:
