summer inspiration : photo ideas

While it's easy to remember to get snapshots of all the BIG moments in summer (vacations & holidays) - don't forget to bring your camera out to capture some of the everyday moments. Here's some ideas for recording the small details of the season.

Outside :
*dirty feet
*grass stained jeans
*bottles of sunscreen

*plants in your garden
*popsicle sticky hands and faces

Out & About :

Friends :
*your child's usual playmates

Inside :
*lazy mornings curled up on the couch
*stacks of books from the library
*favorite rainy day / too hot to go outside games
*sandals piled up by the front door
*packed up sports gear / beach bag / picnic basket

We can't wait to see the photos of YOUR summers - what details will you capture?

Ah! My son is wearing the exact same shorts from the first picture today. Adorable! I love the way that photo is cropped. Great idea. :)
