I belong to a blog circle called 5 on 5. We're a group of lifestyle and documentary family photographers who believe in telling stories with our photography. It is our heart to record real life as it happens. There is beauty to be found in every single moment after all.
On the 5th of every month, we will each blog 5 images that tell a story. You can see my story from last month here.
Last week, the kids and I went to visit their grandparents for one last dip in their swimming pool before school began earlier this week. Fortunately, they live within driving distance from us here in Maryland. It's so important to my husband and I that our kids have a close relationship with our parents, and vice versa.
Like most families, ours has spent a significant portion of our summer at the pool. Our children are complete fish, and they were excited to show Nona and Jagee their new skills in the pool.
Our littlest, at four, started to swim without his vest this summer as well as jump in the deep end and swim underwater. And my girl has spent most of her summer underwater, just like I did when I was her age. They were both eager to test out their new goggles Nona and Jagee gave them that day.
And what's an afternoon in the pool without super soakers?
Now it's time to head on over to the next stop in the 5 on 5 blog circle. Check out the blog of Jenny Bowers, Southern Michigan documentary family photographer.
