a month of settling back at home after a very busy summer (most of it spent away), awesome friends visiting, a trip to crystal springs and LOTS of time spent in the water. here's what august looked like... back with kiele.
hanging out at honeymoon island.
payton and the mermaid barbie she
found rescued from the water.
kayaking and swimming at three sisters spring -- where the water is a constant 72 degrees and the manatees like to hang out in the winter.
the whole gang.
the security guard at our hotel, who has lived in the area his entire life, told us that three sisters spring was named that because three sisters had died there. he shared that it was shut down for quite a while. so when editing the photo below of my friend, it kind of creeped me out to see three hands in the image (heather's plus two reflections of each hand). but of course, it also made me love the image that much more.
twister with friends.
at our hotel.
jumping into the river, where we saw five manatee swim by.
celebrating jen's birthday.
swimming at home.
playing in the street puddles.
me, shooting in the rain, in the street [taken by jen].
shooting in the smelly bay with jen & the littles [more photos from here coming soon].
and of course, the first day of school [taken after school].
there’s a small circle of photographers participating in this 'what ____ looks like' monthly project. i hope you’ll check them all out [clicking link to link] — starting with leah zawadzki | orange county family photographer.
