Celebrating the End of Summer | Photographs from Rockport | Long Beach and Halibut Point

It is hard not to get a little melancholy  as Labor Day (ie. the “End of Summer”) draws to a close. It is time to become instantly nostalgic for late afternoon sun, bug spray, burning charcoal, sunblock, salt water, melting ice cream, and lime flavored beer. I enjoyed all these things this weekend with my dogs, husband, and in-laws. I also received my new Lensbaby, a super fun toy lens that I can’t wait to use with some upcoming portrait shoots (I maybe got a little crazy over-using it this weekend – but hey, it’s new!).

So bye-bye Summer, I will miss you terribly. Glorious Fall – I think I already sense your crisp goodness in the air today.
