We are lucky enough to be able to borrow a family member's cabin in the woods a few times a year and we LOVE it! It is only about a bit over an hour to drive there and it is just so relaxing- to hang out in the middle of nowhere doing nothing. Kids and parents both love the downtime and we love taking just a few days to not have a schedule for anything. I do always bring my camera, but usually take more formal images of the kids outside- trying to highlight the season. But this time I decided to have a more lifestyle approach and just be present- and be a witness. And I have to say I LOVE these just as much as the few we created as their formal Easter pictures. While I do always bring my camera and a few lenses along on trips, I rarely have it out to capture the everyday- and I would like to do more of it! Being a professional photographer in Maryland is fabulous because we get to experience each and every season. And my kids love remembering happy experiences through photographs too!
