Each year my family goes on a 2-week camping trip to a gorgeous campsite on a beautiful, calm bay right next to a provincial park. There’s no reception in the campsite and no internet unless you walk to the office, so for these two weeks, we’re forced to unplug from social media, emails, text and phone calls and just enjoy family time. And it’s always so welcome.
Maybe I’m alone in this, but I can feel my soul being weighed down on days I spend too much time on technology, but find it so difficult to just go find something else to do. So getting off the computer and phone, as well as photographing my family for fun instead of for business (although I did end up taking on two sessions while on vacation!) really refreshed me.
Now that I’m back, my excitement for some of the things that were becoming more mundane has returned and I’m so excited to book up my fall season with sessions filled with golden light and falling leaves, but first I thought I’d share some of my favourite photos of the ones that fill my heart, on our favourite vacation each year.
Being a mama of little ones is hard. Between Mom-guilt and the unattainable idea that moms should be able to do everything for everyone, get very little time to herself and feel fulfilled by it, we need all the support we can get! You aren't in this alone. We're here to walk through the ups and downs of motherhood together in a judgment-free, supportive way.
