New Mood Board & Palette: Summer is Coming!

Before we know it, summer will be here!
Every summer I get excited about the possibility of each day. 
I think of events, meals, and hikes my summer days are full of! 
Also, beach and pool seasons are in full swing!!!
Floating in a swimming pool, going to the beach, surfing, paddleboarding, snorkeling, dining by the water, running through sprinklers, canoeing, wading, water balloon fights, waterparks, and the list goes on.

Even though, we know that this year, Summer might be different.
Wherever we are, we are called to stay at home in an attempt to 

stop the spread of COVID-19
We are not sure if this will be over by the summertime, 
a lot of attractions might be closed.
This means fewer pictures will be taken but 

we'll have more time to catch up with the old ones.

One thing we can say for sure is...summer IS coming, 
so check out my new mood board inspired by all those amazing memories!

And this is the palette I chose for it!!!

I can´t wait to start working with it!!!

Snapshot Ideas! Great Sunny Days Photo Ideas

Sunny weather is the best weather!!!
Skies are blue, the grass is bright, and there is lots of sunlight! 
It’s the perfect moment to spend time with the kids exploring the great outdoors, heading to the coast, relaxing in the garden and even if you're stuck in the office, you can always find some al-fresco spot to enjoy your lunch break!
So dust off your shorts, sandals, and shades, grab your camera, and head out!
Here's a list of how to make the most of your hot sunny days and take tons of great pictures to treasure great Spring memories! 

Sun, swimming pool and relax!
Take advantage of the blue-hued water, play with the light that reflects off it, and snap some underwater shots.
There’s plenty to do in a swimming pool!
Getting your tan on at the side of the pool, playing water games with your family and friends, jumping in and doing backflips, or riding on inflatable swans!
You’re sure to end up with frame-worthy photos!

* Playground fun
Parks are one of the greatest sources of fun great pictures during the sunny days season.
Playgrounds are full of shapes and designs that are great for creating strong compositions.
Scrambling up rope nets, see-saws, giant slides, monkey bars, pint-sized zip-lines, and mini rock-climbing walls are just some of the wonders you'll find at park playgrounds.
Look around the outskirts of the park for more photo opportunities. 

* Sports, sports, sports
Sports are a great source for good photos.
You don't have to be on a team to enjoy playing around with a ball. 
An open field is a great place to practice kicking around the soccer ball or have a game of catch and build good memories.
Remember that sports mean movement and energy, and a series is a great way to tell that part of the story.

* Take a hike
Local, state and national parks offer many different opportunities for hiking. 
Some are short, easy treks to breathtaking scenery; others are major climbs that test your endurance. 
Bird watching and treasure walks are great ways to enjoy hiking with kids.
You can turn this into a scavenger hunt by creating a list of items to look for before you head out. 
Collect “treasures” as you go and then when you go back, lay them all out on the table to admire and talk about all the little things you've found.
Pick an easy hiking trail to do with your kids first and then weekly, during the summer, you can choose a more advanced trail. Look up your local parks or trails to see what your area has to offer.

* Bike rides
Take your kids out for a fun bike ride, either near your house, or if the kids are older, take them on a bike trail. 
Many rides will take you to amazing places where you’ll find great landscapes.
So pump up those tires, put on that helmet and roll!

Relax in the sun

I hope these ideas inspire you to take great pictures to treasure great Sunny Days memories!
They were all created with the Sunny Days
