Happy First Day of Summer! {Southern Maryland Photographer}

Happy first day of summer! Mother Nature kicked things off with sky-high temperatures and loads of sunshine. It really got me in the mood for swimming, fresh watermelon and the countless other things I love about summer. To top things off, I made the mistake of going to Target today, which pushed summer fever over the edge. Colin should be grateful I have amazing self control because I wanted to buy everything in sight: citronella candles in cute little tin buckets, patio furniture, neon nail polish, swimsuit coverups, colorful sandals, large-brimmed beach hats, and so much more! I managed to escape with only the essentials but I thought it was only fair if I allowed someone else to indulge in some Target loveliness. Simply “Like” my Facebook page, then leave a comment on this blog post, telling me what you love most about summer. The winning comment will receive a $25 Target gift card! Easy as [key lime] pie!

    Oh wait, ummm…..my favorite things about summer are lightning bugs and cute swim suits. I also like the smell of a a good sun screen.

    What I love most about summer is riding with the windows down, beach umbrellas, drinking lemonade and grabbing Rita’s Italian ice 🙂

    My perspective regarding what I love most about summer changed drastically in 2010 when I had Isabella! I can without a doubt say now what I love most about the summer is seeing her face light up every time I bring her to the pool! I also love the fact that it stays lighter out longer and I get to spend more time with her in the sun… and of course I also love dressing her in the cutest girly bathing suits 🙂

    My favorite things about summer: the way you smell after being at the pool all day, all chlorinated {kinda weird, I know.} Mix that with sunscreen. Yum. I love some sunkissed skin and cold watermelon!! yumm!
    Your photography is amazing!! <3

    I love water and waves, creamsicles and babes, babies with soggy beach diapers, windshield wipers (during a torrential downpour), suntan lotion, a delicious frozen potion, and a whole lot more…… 🙂

    Love the pics!! My favorite part about summer is being able to sit outside on a warm summer night by the lake. It’s just so peaceful and you can kind of forget reality for awhile:).

    My favorite thing about summer is really specific… it’s that period of time right after a thunderstorm passes and you can still hear it rumbling, and you can smell the hot, wet asphalt and the lightning bugs are just starting to come flickering out. I hadn’t seen a thunderstorm or lightning bugs in three and a half years until we got back last week!

  16. Liz Kissel June 21, 2012

    Watermelon, crabs, lightening bugs, and the beach!!!!! I love listening to all the bugs and tree frogs at night. 🙂

  17. Ashley Gould June 21, 2012

    great pics! one day i want you to take our family pictures!

    my favorite thing about summer is no school, which means sleeping in, having my kids home with me and a month long trip to MD!! 🙂

  18. Debby June 21, 2012

    My favorite things about summer are hanging out with family, reading on the screened porch early in the morning when everyone else is asleep, watching my granddaughters run around the yard on the paths their Papa made for them, picnic lunches, an afternoon nap in the hammock, catching fireflies with my granddaughters and letting them go, ice cold popsicles on a hot day, and sitting outside listening to the sounds of the evening bug orchestra.

    Lets see I have hated summer for many years but now that I have a child in school I now remember why I use to love it. You get summer break to just be lazy and make those priceless summer memories of hikes, water play and of course forth of July!

    I know I’m not supposed to be jealous cause I’m in Aspen, but this makes me so so so so jealous.

  21. Ashley Halsey June 27, 2012

    LOVE your photos! I’d like to get pictures done next spring! What I love about summer is having the break from online classes and being able to relax and enjoy good weather with family and friends. I love all the cute clothes that come out too!!

    Summer!!! I love summer for the simple fact that my kids get a break from school and I get them all to my self!! Time seems to slow down a little bit during summer and my kids growing up process seems to slow down too. Oh, and we get to go to Disneyland too! Wanna come?? : )
