san diego lifestyle photographer | what a day at the fair looks like | june 2012

I’ve been lucky to have met so many incredibly talented and wonderful photographers during this journey.  People who share the same desire to capture their own families in a real and beautiful way.  I’m teaming up with twelve of these women on a very personal and meaningful project called, “What ________ Looks Like.”

Our goal is to capture our own families in a real and beautiful way.  Some people call it “lifestyle”, some call it “real life”, some call it “unposed”.  No matter what you call it, our desire is to snatch the moments that represent the relationships, the dynamics, the reality, the beauty, the truth, and the life of our families and record them here on our blogs as well as in print at the end of the project.

Each month we will each choose to fill in the blank with our word of choice.  Some of us may choose to use the same word all year and some may choose to change it up each month.  We will each link to the next photographer until our circle is complete.

We hope this project inspires you to take more pictures of your own families so that those unique moments that make your family unique will never be lost or forgotten.Wendy VonSosen.

Each of us will put our own spin on this project, making it more meaningful to us.  I wanted my monthly post to be in the form of a letter to Brooks.  When the year is complete, I hope to compile the monthly letters and images into a book.  My gift to him and to myself.  Here is our story of June 2012.

Dear Brooksie,

Awww … lazy mornings, running, working out, farmer’s market, swimming, afternoons with friends, watching the Olympic trials at night … that’s what summer means to us.  Summer also means our trip to the San Diego County Fair.  We had so much fun again this year!  We always go on one of the days that they sell the wrist bands for the rides, which means you can ride all the rides you want that day, over and over and over.  I don’t think you could even pick a favorite ride … you love them all!  Thanks so much for being the best fair buddy around.

You’ve been eyeing this bungee ride ever since we’ve been coming to the fair.  When it shoots up it makes you totally squeal with excitement!  However, there is no way you will ever find me on this ride and the only way you’ll get on it is when you’re a teenager coming with your friends.  I was bummed that when we rounded the corner it was at rest and not zooming to the top.

The bunny behind this one was seriously one of the biggest we have ever seen.  Both of us were amazed at the size of it!

This is always a silly tradition for you.  We only do it at the fair and it so funny for you up to feel the vibrations on your feet.

This set makes me crack up.  The little roller coaster was your first ride of the day and you lucked out for the front seat.  During the ENTIRE ride, the little boys behind you screamed at the top of their lungs and the boy in the 3rd seat cried the entire time.  You kept turning around to see what in the heck was going on and then just laughed.

It’s a short letter tonight since we just picked up MomMom from the train station … I’ll come back to this later in the week and add a bit more.

Love you Tiger!  😉

Mommy
