7 days of camp and no service means no communication with anyone but the campers and of course, no blogging. I love camp. I love having no service on my phone. I love being "disconnected" from the world. Having the freedom to completely devote myself to God's word and discipling the students is such a blessing. In the past week, I've learned so much about Jesus, seen Him move so mightily, and seen His works displayed. As you're reading this blog, take a break and read Romans 8. So powerful.
A bit of news for you...
I know I'm a couple weeks behind on Project 52 which was bound to happen when 7 days of camp comes and there's much to do so I'll be catching up on that periodically. I also have a few seniors and a wedding or two coming soon ;) (which I am so stinkin' excited for!!!) I am currently working on getting my store up and running where you can either buy photos from your session, photos from a friends session or photos that I've taken in the past! I think that's also pretty exciting :)
With that being said, here's some photos of what I've been up to :) Rock climbing, canoeing (I would canoe everywhere if I could), hikes...I just love camp!
I hope you're enjoying the rest of your summer & making the most of it :)

Catherine is a sweetheart senior full of beauty, love and gentleness. If you couldn't already tell, she is one of Caroline's sisters and also drop dead gorgeous. Catherine has just one year left of high school and then she's off on a brilliant journey, studying to become a math teacher (bless her soul...I could never do it!) Before it reached 105 degrees, she rocked her cowboy boots and bouncy blond curls. We grabbed some coffee in the early morning and then walked around town catching up and capturing her stunning-self. Catherine, it was an absolute joy spending some time with you, beautiful girl!

Ladies and gents, please welcome the new business cards! Woot woot! Although they're just little pieces of paper, I'm pretty darn excited about them.
Happy Friday friends! I hope this day is full of adventure and happiness!

Midnight rolls around on Monday and I figure I should pack my bag for The Lake House. For the couple of days, I packed much more camera equipment than clothing. The weather was perfect for the two days I was there, unlike the last time we went.
It was my first time being up there on July 4 and the first year I hadn't seen fireworks or been to a festival. Kind of a bummer but the serenity of the north woods is a good trade-off :)

Happy Monday! If you've got a case of the Monday's, hopefully these photos from this week will cheer you up! This week was Summerfest at Harvest; a week-long Bible summer camp for kids ages 4 through 5th grade. I just love these kids!
Hope you have an excellent Monday filled with coffee and sunshine ;)

Woah, it's already July. Today marks one month of blogging and it's been a lovely month. Last month was full of breakfast dates, road trips, puppies and ice cream. Add some new camera gear, lake house trips and weddings to that and you've got June! This month was lovely for so many reasons...take a look!
1. My cousin Stephanie graduated from Knox College this June! Practically my whole family went to school there so she did her part in carrying the tradition ;) 2. The 5D Mark II arrived this month! Ahh! I practically hugged the UPS lady when she delivered it to me. 3. Intern adventures at Harvest with Mandy. This month we hand-delivered gifts to all of the incoming 6th graders. 4. Unfortunately I managed to break my glasses in June but...I got to order 5 pairs of glasses to test out from Warby Parker for free! Seriously, they're amazing. I'm still debating between the Japhy & the Miles. $95 for a beautiful pair of glasses is a dream. 5. Summer sunsets are my favorite. Even better on the top of parking garages and with good friends. See a better picture of this sunset here. 6. Mornings at the lake house are absolutely delightful. Coffee drinking, reading Luke and being amazed at God's glory. 7. Sunsets at the lake house are even better than sunsets on top of parking garages. Nothing can beat boat rides on a glass-like lake while the sun falls. 8. 2 free drinks from Starbucks this month...thanks to my coffee addiction and Gold membership. 9. I started a wet plate collodion this month and it is the most fascinating photographic process I've tried thus far. Loving these adventures. Watch this to learn more about wet plate. 10. You know you have an awesome job when you get to hang out at the park and play earth ball soccer with junior highers. 11. Late night Yogli Mogli with some of my favorite people. 12. If you didn't already know, I am a Dane. My mom came to America when she was 6 and for my cousin Stephanie's graduation she made kransekage which is a danish cookie cake made with almond paste and sugar. 13. Summer is for cousin love and outdoor parties. 14. Painting after a long week and a long week ahead is always good. 15. Monday mornings. Baking & coffee...doesn't get much better. 16. Tuesday mornings are for coffee dates with the horses.
June seriously flew by. I cannot believe it's already July. More lake house trips are in order (I'm actually going up in two days!), days in the city and going to a drive-in movie or two. I may or may not have succeeded at all four of my June goals (I only reach one...oops!) but it's time for some July goals.
1. Get the June goals done! Sheesh!
2. Read more. [hopefully two books!]
3. Go on more bike rides!
4. Do this Amanda Russel work out everyday for three weeks
How was your June?! Any big plans for July?
