The newest member of the Mayo family!

Eaden Kai was born September 13, 2015 at 1:35pm. 7lb 4oz, 19.5 inches. 

These first weeks have been so sweet and we are all so in love with this little girl!
I am taking the next few months to care for her and her brothers and adjust to being a family of five, and I'm looking forward to taking a limited number of sessions each month beginning in January 2016!
In the meantime, I may finally catch up on blogging all of this year's sessions and births! So stay tuned...

The cure for Summer in Florida is water.


I just returned from an amazing weekend in Virginia Beach for the Wild + Free Conference, and that little taste of cool breezes and chilly nights really whet my appetite for Fall weather. I'm ready!

So many afternoons looked just like this over the last few months.

Sunny skies, then storm clouds roll in and the atmosphere of the beach changes completely.

The cool breezes blow in from the sea and you can smell the coming rain and see it on the water before it reaches land.

Dark grey-blue clouds pour themselves out into the expanse of turquoise and navy and everything in between.
The colors of the sea, especially on the edge of a storm, are haunting and beautiful and make me feel so completely alive.

We pack our bags and wait until the first drops fall and the first thunderclaps can be heard,
and then we run to the car, laughing. free.

This is the sixth installment in my ongoing effort to document the people in my life on film. See all posts in this series here.

It is not only the monumental events that define our lives. The details, the more common moments are often the strongest and deepest-hued threads woven into the tapestry of life. The rhythm of the everyday, and the attitude with which we greet it, makes us who we are more than anything else.

This post is part of an ongoing personal project, capturing real moments with my own family and friends on film. Shot with Pentax 67, expired Portra 160VC, and Fuji Acros; developed and scanned by The FIND Lab.
