i heart faces: for the love of summer {downers grove lifestyle photographer}

September 4, 2012

I think this summer my camera was attached to my hip pretty much 24/7.  Ok, maybe I didn’t sleep with it (that would be weird), but I love that I get to be with my kids all day, we get to do those fun summer trips, and I treasure being able to capture it all.  Looking back through the many images of the summer, I feel this one sums it all up.  Skipping around by the lake catching bugs during sunset… be still my heart ;).

I Heart Faces is celebrating summer this week ~ go take in all the wonderfulness!!

I adore Lake Michigan.  The tall grass in the sand, the soft breezes, the waves small enough for the kids to play in, but not big enough to knock them over.  Add an amazing lake house to that lake, and I have to pinch myself to see if I’m dreaming!  This sweet weekend at a friend’s parents’ gorgeous cottage was refreshing, relaxing, and the perfect last trip of the summer.

Some of our favorite things to do as a family are camping, bike riding, and relaxing on the beach.  So we threw them all together and went up to spend some good quality family time at Lake Michigan a few weeks ago.  It was a bit warmer than the norm, but I’d do it all again in a heartbeat.
