#weekend10 - week 7

If you have been following along with my old blog (www.libbywilliamsphotoblog.com), you know that over the course of the summer I have been inspired to do a project close to my heart called #weekend10. I am loving the challenge it's brought me to look at my life and capture it with a fire in my belly that I thought I had lost when your passion becomes your career. It's not as much fun to tote a camera around on the weekend after you have been shooting all week. And lets face it - my kid is pretty tired of me taking his photo these days. But he obliges me, knowing the pain will quickly subside.

This weekend was rainy, cloudy and pretty boring - aside from the 4th of July...fireworks and sunshine for the win!  The rest of it was spent doing laundry, packing and reading for camp this week and a big shoot I am off to do. So weekends like that prove especially hard for me to supply content.

I somehow managed to get it done - despite myself and the dreary days. So here you go:

 Because...4th of July! Whoop whoop!

 Even Bella got to be a little patriotic on the beach! She loves the water. Silly dog.

 These 2 goofballs are off to camp for the first time. Friends since they were infants! So happy for them. But not for the mommas. (sniff, sniff)

 He even let me take a photo so I can look at him every day. And even though it out of focus and soft, I am showing it to you. You know you need more photos of the Boy.

So what about you? Did you do anything fun? I would love to see your photos from the 4th!

Also, I want to thank all of you for your undying support and kindness on my new venture. My blog won't change much, but my mission finally got focused. I have been talking about going after what you want for so long, I had to heed my own advice. It's scary to change and declare what you want, but hopefully the rest of the world will follow along with my little plan!
 

With gratitude,

Libby
