Party in the back…


Our weather has been ALL OVER THE BOARD lately, but the past few days have been in the 80’s-WHAT?!!  Makes me a little scared for this summer… BUT, it’s been fun getting to wear light flowey tops (with barely there backs!!)

 I feel like I might be sounding like a broken record about my LOVE of an interesting back.

AND, the front of this top is gorgeous all on it’s own!Blog Free People Fly Away Top Hudson Collin Skinny Gray Mystique Tie Sandals-1 But….Blog Free People Fly Away Top Hudson Collin Skinny Gray Mystique Tie Sandals-2 Blog Free People Fly Away Top Hudson Collin Skinny Gray Mystique Tie Sandals-3 So, I ordered another shutter release, but it’s on back order.  SO…the last few shoots have been all with the self timer.  I CANNOT WAIT for the new shutter release to get here!!

Imagine me hitting the shutter, and then RUNNING to the spot (which is farther away than normal, because I was using a zoom lens)  She kept thinking we were running together, and then I’d stop at the focus point.  I LOVE this next image.  Her face is like “Um….why are you stopping??!” haha.

Don’t mind me.  Just trying to show the amazing back of this top!! 😉Blog Free People Fly Away Top Hudson Collin Skinny Gray Mystique Tie Sandals-4And…her chasing me to the spot 🙂  I love this little pocket of sunshine and all the shade around it…Blog Free People Fly Away Top Hudson Collin Skinny Gray Mystique Tie Sandals-5Wanting up…

UGH, what am I going to do when she stops wanting to be picked up for a hug??!!

(insert major TEARS emoji!!)Blog Free People Fly Away Top Hudson Collin Skinny Gray Mystique Tie Sandals-6 Once again, I hadn’t planned on throwing her, but she came running full force at me, and we caught it perfectly.  Well, not perfectly because I chopped off half of her body.  Love that I still got her face…in the shadow and all.Blog Free People Fly Away Top Hudson Collin Skinny Gray Mystique Tie Sandals-7 Blog Free People Fly Away Top Hudson Collin Skinny Gray Mystique Tie Sandals-8 Blog Free People Fly Away Top Hudson Collin Skinny Gray Mystique Tie Sandals-9Bubble gun that we got from the dollar store.  So cool, because it doesn’t require batteries.  NOT so cool, because  you have to push the trigger a kazillion times to get a lot of bubbles.  That’s hard for her, so she usually gets one big bubble… Blog HM Red Striped Dress Naartjie Leggings Red Saltwater Sandals-1 Blog HM Red Striped Dress Naartjie Leggings Red Saltwater Sandals-2This next shot is totally blurry, and I don’t care!!  I tried “gunning” some bubbles for her, and then attempted to run back to catch her chasing them.  Well, the wind was too strong, and… Blog HM Red Striped Dress Naartjie Leggings Red Saltwater Sandals-3You can’t tell, but it was 75 degrees.  We were both HOT!  And I was totally sweaty from running back and forth between the camera, and then chasing her.  SO…we made the executive decision to leave and go play at the indoor gymnastic free play.  Always sad to leave… Blog HM Red Striped Dress Naartjie Leggings Red Saltwater Sandals-4On me…

One more time that she came running towards me, and I wasn’t prepared.  TOTALLY wish I’d had this set up to capture HER!!!!  GAH!!!  I put a new battery in the receiver as soon as I got home!!!

    Love, love, love the location of this shoot! So lush! I also love your top. Very flowy and perfect for 80 degree days. And…how did you capture that big bubble in front to Maya? That is such a cool pic! Talent I tell ya, true talent!

      Thank you Leyla!! It’s actually a few blocks from our house! I love it, because it’s always changing! Well, and it’s close 😆 Funny thing, I envisioned her surrounded by a kazillion bubbles, but she can’t pump the gun very well, so it ends up just doing one big one. Accidental win?? ☺️ I think I’m just going to buck up and get a motorized bubble machine and take it on shoots too! Hmmmm, write off?? 🤔😂

      And oddly, I took these particular pics a few weeks ago when it was only in the mid 70’s. Perfect air conditioned top haha. It got up to 90 this past weekend, which called for ACTUAL air conditioning! I practically melted on my shoots 😫 Geez…another book 😂🙊
      Hope you have a good day!
