We went to Italy for a few weeks this summer with friends…and kids. And it was a success! We all love to travel and the kids are game for anything as long as water they can jump in is nearby along with a playground or park with mmmmm gelato (and let’s face it, the devices and their USB chargers are always with a parent in case of emergency!) The website Ciao Bambino http://ciaobambino.com/ was a great resource too – it had lots of family travel advice – not just to Italy either. I didn’t plan to take shots like these below, they just started to unfold in front of me while I was hanging back, usually switching lenses, and I got to capture them experiencing Italy for themselves.
With weekends filled with sports for our two kids, I don’t shoot alot of weddings, although I find them super fun! I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to capture images of special friends Stephanie and Ryan’s big day. It was a lovely setting at Brant Beach Yacht Club in Long Beach Island. I wish them all the happiness in the world!
for this young lady and her team of nurses as she finished off her chemo treatments. And it was a good day for me, feeling helpful and hopeful as I worked with Flashes of Hope again creating uplifting portraits of children with cancer.
I travelled to Indonesia last week. Wonderful trip and lots of great images to share soon. One of the best parts of the trip, tho was a visit to a school in Bali. Sweet, smart kids, who were my own kids’ ages – they sang for us, did traditional Balinese dances and eagerly chatted about all things Western.
