In case you haven't noticed or maybe you don't read my blog consistently and don't know, we are a party-kind-of family. Nearly every occasion calls for a party, especially birthdays. August is a big birthday month for us so we do it up big with a large, swim party at my parents' house. Everyone comes ready to play and swim and celebrate. I really enjoy taking pictures during our big family gatherings. As I search for "my" style of photography I realize more and more that I'm really a lifestyle photographer. These style of photos make my heart sing.
