We just got home from a half week at Lake Powell and it was so nice to be unplugged for a few days in the middle of busy season! A couple of nights while we were there, I got up around 3am to take some Milky Way shots (combined with the meteor shower) and I am loving how they turned out! My 12 year old loved keeping me company while I took these. I have never tried photographing the stars before this but I think I am hooked! It was worth the missed sleep. ;)

Lots of catching up to do – look for some new full sessions on the blog soon!
