A Camping We Did Go [Phoenix, Mesa, Gilbert Professional Photographer]

            We went camping this past weekend. I love camping. As the only girl in the household I never really had a choice. I do love it but I believe I am rapidly approaching the "I'm done with the tent and sleeping bag on the ground thing". I see a pop-up trailer in our future. This weekend did two things for me: 1) Our family is getting ready for our trip to the Caribbean and there has been the stress of what camera gear to bring and not bring. I really want to leave my professional self behind during that time and just be a mom. So I needed to know if I could use my old camera and one lens and be happy with my images, and 2) shoot for me. Sometimes I forget to do that. I need to make more of an effort to take time creating for me. I truly enjoyed doing that this weekend. I often get asked what camera gear I used on an image. For every single one of these images I used Heybabe's (follow me long enough and you'll figure out who Heybabe is) Canon XTi with the 18-55 kit lens, no flash. It was refreshing to go simplistic!

              One of the highlights was stumbling upon a rather large, wild, blackberry patch! I think every child should have the memory of picking and eating wild berries!
