Summer Moments Photo Diary


Enjoying each moment and being in the present has been a big goal of mine this summer. Everything from spending more time outside to making time to bake. I thought I would do something a bit different on my blog. Since I take a lot of photos that don’t end up on here, I thought I would share some of my favorite summer moments from this past week in a mini photo diary!

Most mornings this summer have been started with a cup of tea and on this rainy day, I decided to spend some time watching the rain while getting ready.

This little one thinks every pillow in the house is her own personal bed, and it’s the cutest thing.

Summer walks with this little one are always the best.

Summer sunsets are my favorite. There is something so calming about seeing the beautiful shades of pink and orange as the day ends.

But I do love a moody blue evening sky too.

On the day I wanted to take some photos it was starting to rain. So instead of calling it quits, I just used an umbrella and I love how the photos turned out. This was taken on the trail I walk in the mornings, and it’s one of the most beautiful places near where I live.

Even though it’s been so hot here recently, I still try to spend a bit of time outside. For some reason, it has taken me this long to realize that the flowers in my backyard would be great to cut and bring inside.

And those are a few summer moments from this week. I’d love to know how summer is going for you!

    So many lovely, intimate moments shared in this blog post, although my absolute favourite is the first one featuring the striped umbrella. Bare legs in the pouring rain? SO many memories of this kind of woodland walk – and all of them positive 🙂 x

    I love these summer snaps- so good for living in (and remembering) the moment!

    How cute is your pup? My girls do this, too- any pillow/blanket/soft anything we buy immediately becomes yet another dog bed, haha.

    All the pictures are wonderful! They give me the most relax feeling looking at them. I’d love to know what camera you shoot with them most, is it the one you’re showing here? Photography is my side job, one of many, lol! My summer has been busy trying to get my son out into the work force, he’s 20 and it’s a challenge to say the least!!


  22. Quinn says:
