San Diego Lifestyle Photographer | What ___ Looks Like | August 2014

It’s been such a while since I shared this project.  I snuck a post into the June circle, but this is the first time in a YEAR that I have participated in my crazy, talented group!  My post isn’t full of beautiful light and gorgeous images … it’s full of what my life looks like now … a sporty little 9 year old.  So, here it is, What Catching Up Looks Like | August 2014. I’ll add a link down below, but here is a link to take you to What Backyard Camping Looks Like | Deanna McCasland.

Hey there Brooksie!

We really don’t take photos like we used to.  These days, I simply document a little bit of your sports activities … soccer, running, triathlons, swim meets, etc.  You’re not too into photos (except for my treasured Mother’s Day collection), so I try to honor that and sneak the photos in when I can.  So even though this set may not be ‘art’, it is a documentation of us right now.  We just spent the whole summer driving from practice to practice … every day … all summer long.  I wouldn’t have it any other way and I know that as soon as school starts on Wednesday, I’m going to miss our routine. I’m super excited for you to start 4th grade.  I’ve spent the last 6 months worrying about it, but now I’m finally ready …. you’re going to be a great 4th grader! We’re starting this off with your team and their awesome run at State Cup.  You all played so well!1E7C6934-Edit1E7C69591E7C6962-Edit1E7C69641E7C6975Next up is just a glimpse of our busy weekend … Ironkids race on Friday and Carlsbad race on Saturday.  You ran two awesome races!1E7C69991e7c7035.11E7C7089We went to the beach one evening a little early for a client’s session.  You loved sneaking in a little swimming and I loved watching you.1E7C7138-Edit1E7C7147-Edit1E7C7371-Edit-21E7C7373-EditGet Air with friends.1E7C7387-Edit1E7C7400-Edit1E7C7435So many highlights of Spring Sprint this year.  One of our favorites was running into V before she took off on her race.  It was a thrill to cheer her on!1E7C7903-Edit1E7C79151e7c7945.11E7C79511E7C79661E7C79811E7C79901E7C80121E7C8044-Edit2nd place finish.1E7C8066You three are an impressive trio … two first place finishes and a second.  Way to go!1E7C8071-EditOn to a swim meet another weekend.  You’re not really loving swimming these days so this ended up being the second to last meet.  I’m really bummed that you’re not loving swimming, but I’ll try again another time.1E7C82281E7C82341E7C8265We raced from the swim meet to a Tri event.  It was so cool to watch the swim portion with the video of your swim.1E7C82871E7C8301-EditAnd more soccer … this time your team was a finalist.1E7C0249-Edit1E7C0252-Edit1E7C03611E7C0367Splash N Dash Aquathlon was probably your most favorite Tri event this year.  You totally rocked the swim and the run!1E7C8817-Edit-21E7C88251E7C88281E7C88301E7C8840-EditI love these buddies of yours.  We met up a little early on the last day of school for a couple photos together and with your sweet teacher!1E7C88691E7C8885-Edit1E7C8941Another tournament and another chance at a Championship … but you came home a ‘finalist’.1E7C89651E7C89681E7C89691E7C89771E7C8995-EditOne of your favorite events this summer … your first 5K trail run.   Before your RB Freedom Run 5K race, you said you were shooting for 24 minutes … we told you it would more likely be 30ish minutes due to it being a hilly trail run. well, sure enough you finished your first 5K race at 24:21 ... first among boys and 4th overall!1E7C90171E7C9019-Edit1E7C90241E7C90321E7C90351E7C90421E7C9048-Edit1E7C9052We totally know how to evacuate in style.  When San Diego was on fire, we went downtown to the Hotel Salamar for a couple of relaxing days.  We both loved exploring downtown and visiting the museums.Processed with VSCOcam with t1 preset20140515-IMG_293220140515-IMG_296020140515-IMG_296120140515-IMG_2963Processed with VSCOcam with t1 preset20140515-IMG_2978Processed with VSCOcam with f2 preset20140516-IMG_3040Processed with VSCOcam with x1 presetProcessed with VSCOcam with t1 presetProcessed with VSCOcam with t1 presetProcessed with VSCOcam with c2 presetBest of luck to you (and me) this week as you tackle 4th grade with determination and drive!  You’ve got this!
