Lake Erie love

This summer has been a million pictures full of moments... first moments, last moments, maternity, birth, families wrapped up in each other, reflection, fireworks, a camping trip, a trip to Lake Erie (posted below), weddings, an engagement and more! 

I would love to compliment my website the next few weeks by adding some Fall color, and you! 

I have put forth a lot of effort to spend these coming Fall days behind my camera. I hope to see you on the other side of my lens capturing your moments this season. Maybe for a senior portrait session, outdoor family photos, your engagement session, or upcoming wedding? You can connect with me through the website or e-mail me at nicolehuffman3@Gmail.com.  

Until we connect this Fall, here are photos I took most recently of my family while at Lake Erie. This is what I am framing next! I have realized that I have to print them, frame them and see them daily to enjoy them. Otherwise, my CF cards and hard drive steal all my most prized moments! 

Oh, and I do have a couple great sessions to share from this summer coming soon! Also, I hope you stay in touch to hear about November and how I hope to spread hope in 30 days! 

Lake Erie, Summer 2015

I love the great lakes. I love the shore line and smooth, weathered rocks. The great lakes have no sharks, and that is very good with me! Those of you who know me, know I have a serious fear of sharks (pathetic really!) 

I love how the water and sky meet somewhere in infinity allowing me to feel free enough to dream for a moment. I spent a lot of time dreaming last week. 

These kids filled my memory cards. We ate every meal together and the food was possibly the most sensory linked memory. We had ribs, seafood, Merlefest chicken, I will spare you the rest! 

Roman gave us a scare the day before we left. We thought we lost him, like really lost him for about 45 minutes. There were police, search teams and only a little blue bike parked at the pier. Luckily, it was just a scare and we found him. I think we all took a little something from that day. And though we will never forget Lakeside, I am sure they will never forget us now! 

This story follows up with...

Zack walked in on a woman using the facility in his panicked search for Roman. OOPS! Randy almost ran me over with the van (I did not tell you all this), Roman also went "hunting" down a skunk...no comment! Nora and boo boo were insepperable. 

Zack also flipped in his Kayak in search of beached treasures, I was with him and missed the whole thing because I was trying to get my camera ready to take pictures of him!

 Annie and I were accused of "Stealing" rocks from the shoreline. Annie, Randy, Mike and Caroline almost got kicked out of shuffleboard for being "a little too competitive"! Finally, calling out a store for misspelling the printing on their shirts. It was a greivious error people! 

It was a lovely week away from reality. We cerated our own little world and dreamed every night and loved each day! Until next year... because we will be back Lakeside!

Yours Truly, 

Nicole

Because Roman took off his shirt, obviously it was necessary for her to as well!
