click of the wild | summertime.

I failed again. I was awful about getting this “summertime” image for Click of the Wild! But in my defense – I’m still working full time, plus doing my photography business, and trying to get my school stuff worked out. And THEN, when I would finally get 5 minutes to do this, it was raining.

Regardless, it’s Monday night, and I crammed about 10 minutes ago and got these shots in our yard :)

Enough whining for this post – when I think of summertime, I think of a garden. I grew up working summers in the garden. I think of vegetables. I think of the color ‘green’. So here’s a snippet of summertime to me.

I like the crisp feel of this image. I like the brightness of the tomato in contrast with the background. I like the shape of the vines. And I like the placement of the tomato.

I like this next image because it screams color. untitled-2

And I adore this last image. I may even have it printed big. Just because I like the lightness of it. The air-like feel.  untitled-3

click of the wild | patterns.

When I chose “patterns” for the focus of Click of the Wild, I thought about the basics of the word ‘pattern’. But then, being the over-thinker I am, I looked up the definition.

The definition of ‘Pattern’:   1. a repeated decorative design.

So many times lately, I’ve been reminded that we, as humans, are a repeated decorative design. We have patterns; we’re habitual/repetitive creatures. We follow culture, we learn from our surroundings, and although each person is different, we all have a distinct pattern. We may learn from our past, and take on new direction, but it still creates a pattern.

So for this ‘focus’ I tried to think of ways I could photograph my life, as a pattern. My surroundings, my happiness, where I am, and where I want to go.

My mind swirled with ideas, none of these are quite as I pictured in my mind, but you get the picture ;)

krystle | bridals.

This stunning bridal session was taken right at a year ago. I knowwww; I’m ridiculous :) Since then, she’s had a stunning wedding and had a new baby boy! I’m so excited for their little family, and thankful I got the opportunity to do this shoot. Man, so much can change in a year :)

kerry & darla| baby bump.

Kerry is a friend of mine through AdvoCare; I’m so extra thankful for that business for so many different reasons, but a main reason is because of the lifelong friendships I’ve made through that company.

Kerry is expecting Lillie Kate to arrive in August, and I’m SO excited to meet her! We had to get some pictures with the only current babygirl – Darla. Who doesn’t love a cute boxer in a shoot? ;) And yes, she’s a hot mama.

laxtons | family.

This family… Goodness. I think the sun rises and sets in them.

Jack & Isla are pretty much the cutest twins in the world. Those curls. Those eyes. Those smiles. *sigh*

ryan & dana | baby bump.

This maternity session was done last November; baby Hudson is here, healthy, and as sweet as a button. You’ll see him posted here on Monday :) But for now, better late than never, right? ;)

Side note: could this location be anymore awesome? Probably not :)
