The rain is falling outside my studio today, and there is a chill in the air. Fall is definitely here. I want to curl up in a blanket on the coach with a fire in the fireplace and read a good book. The days of chasing butterflies through the forest are gone for this year. The kids running barefoot through the creek, also is only a memory for now. I love the summer. I love the freedom it makes me feel. I love that there is so much light, enabling much longer shooting hours during the day. I guess today I am just reminiscing about the summer and how great it is. Autumn is lovely too, be assured I do appreciate its beauty. The fall leaves make for amazing backdrops for fotoshoots. But there is just something magical about the summers in Sweden, and it is with a sad adjö I say good-bye to summer 2017. I do still have many images from this summer to sort through and edit, so I am sure this will not be last summer image, but it is one of my current favorites. I love muddy feet on gorgeous children.
