Monday morning's heatwave brought along with it a really cool family to photograph. The Ligon family welcomed me into their home to spend a few hours capturing memories. Here a a few of my favorite shots from the session.

What do you do with an adorable one year old for her session?

You bring props with you and hope for smiles.

But what if she isn't interested in your stuff?

You... ummm... hmmmm, Oh I know...

You mention the strawberry birthday cake..... and get a smile.

Is the session over now that the baby is sticky and gooey?

No, now it is time for the water hose.

Help my child is shriveling up.

Oh the joys of summer. Here are some reasons why I love summer (and you should too);

1.) I love strolling the streets in our hometown. I just wish the stores stayed open later. It is no fun to just window shop all the time, sometimes I want to SPEND SPEND SPEND.

2.) Hearing the crickets chirping at night. If you think that noise maker on your alarm clock sounds like the real thing your wrong. Step out side on a summer night in the south and be serenaded by mother natures symphony.

3.)No school for the kiddies. At my house this means later bed times. So we can go do fun cool sruff even on a weeknight.

4.) Tans. (not tanning beds, but the real deal) I know they are bad for you, but the warmth of laying out and reading a good book...sigh

5.)The wrinkled cuteness of my children when they have spent hours swimming.

Bike Race Uptown Lexington.

It is good to know that spandex still has a place in the world. This weekend hundreds of spandex clad bikers hit the streets of Lexington.

For the second night in a row we went uptown to watch the bike races. Last night the bikes made laps. Tonight we witnessed sprints. And oh boy, talk about intensity.

Look real close at the tiny orange and white dots. Can you see the Hooters girls at the starting line? Seems to me they should have had them at the finish line giving the guys something to race towards.

Check this guy out. If I did this on a bike it would flip over and send me tumbling towards the pavement. No doubt I would end up in the emergency room.

I think I need a closer look.... WOW

And these guys were really fighting to the finish.

The whole event was so cool to have in Uptown Lexington, lots of bystanders, friends and pets. Another successful Bike race for Lexington.

Sorry Bloggers.

I have neglected this blog for the past few weeks, and I am so sorry. But I have a really good excuse........ Summer is here.

I have been shooting, and shooting and shooting. But I can not convince myself to stay inside and blog. The weather took an unusual cool turn last week, and I wanted to be outside for every minute of it. But alas, it is HOT again today. So, here I sit.

Hope you had a great 4th, and took in some fireworks.

And a little swimming.

We went to a carnival, after the fireworks.

Here are a few scenes from the market in Charleston.
