this poor little space has been quite neglected the past few months. between penny starting school, the holidays, visiting family, and clem suddenly turning into a raging maniac who climbs everything, welp, something had to give. sadly for the first time in 5 years i didn't finish my 52 project, and though i have photographs from just about every week, i never properly documented them here and now the task is just beyond comprehension. new year, new start though! i've had the pleasure of photographing some really incredible families these past few months and plan to share some of those images here, but in the meantime here is what life right now is really all about...
penny + clementine: this morning, with this light, i could have photographed you guys forever. in an effort to get some time outdoors before the oppressive atlanta heat of the day sets in, we had taken to doing early morning walks. penny, you LOVED making footprints in the morning dew, and clem you didn't mind being strolled around while snacking one single bit.
penny, we didn't know it at the time, but this would would end up being your last week of summer vacation. on the friday of this week we found out, pretty last minute, that spots had opened up for you and stella at our first choice school! however, no longer did you have a full week left of summer, you were starting on monday! so these walks and these photos turned out to mark the end of summer break for us. i'm glad we made the effort to simply have some quality time together before the go go go of the school year is upon us. exciting days ahead!
penny + clem: it took us a little while to get the swing of this summer with two kids thing. the days got so hot so fast that we needed to explore some new shady spots in order to make it work. this here land trust, tucked away right in the middle of busy atlanta, was a great spot to spend a morning. clem, you ate a gallon of sand. and penny, you were covered head to toe in about that same amount. it was indeed perfect.
