These images are part of a personal project I laid out one night. Dozens of ideas sprang to mind about summer and the wonderful feeling of cool water on hot skin, running through sprinklers, water balloons, whip cream pie fights, marble games, and mud men, just to name a few. Some of my clearest memories are from the ages of 8-14. A time when life was simple and there were no worries or distractions. Living fully in the moment, using imagination to keep boredom at bay. A time of being outdoors until the moon was high in the summer sky. If time travel were possible, that's where I would chose to go. Back to the girl in blonde braids and freckles and see what new adventure we could embark upon.
I'm just beginning to take a look at a summer's worth of shooting so check back from time to time.
