Summer Nights…

I’ve been working away all week on Amy and Jason’s Mexico wedding and I can’t wait to share a sneak peek with you very soon!

Tonight though, I took a little time to go sit in the grass with my son and watch the fireflies (or lightning bugs as we call them here in the south) dance through the night sky. They have always been one of my very favorite things. This is the first year that Seven has been old enough to really enjoy them too and it is so much fun to watch him run through the yard with his blanket shouting “light-ing bug!” :)

If there is one thing that is most wonderful about being a photographer, it is being able to create images like this of my kids. It’s like being able to bottle up these memories and keep them forever. What a gift.

I love this guys! Amazing to capture so many in one shot too. Seven looks happy as a clam and I can't blame him. PS: I suggest we all get together, poke some holes in a mayonnaise jar and catch some lightning bugs together. ;) You in?

I remember fireflies from my childhood then again in the mountains of NC. I think we killed most of them off in Fl. trying to control the mosquitoes.
