sum, sum, SUMMER! Our short, but oh-so-very-sweet seven week summer break is here and we are squeezing the life out of it!  We are spending most afternoons at the lake, making new friends (even Mama) and taking lots of pictures.  Weekends find us out and about as usual, soaking up the sights and adventures so abundant here in Switzerland. I realize this project is challenging, but truly if I cannot take at least one photo every day in summer, something is seriously wrong with me!  I am pretty excited for what’s coming this fall, too.  A move, a new school for my little guy and two new business ventures (at least) for me.  Stay tuned for more info on that coming very, very soon! xxoo Kate.

Freelensed.  St-Prex, Switzerlandswitzerland_family_photographerThe giant pretzel floatie has sadly met an untimely death. Remind me to tell you about my dream Ghost Mom photo series.  St-Prex, Switzerlandswitzerland_nature_photographerOne from July’s edition of our international mothers’ freelensing project, Into Something Better.  Official post coming later this week.  Tolochenaz, Switzerlandswitzerland_nature_photographerTournesol/Sunflower. Field after field after field of these beauties here in Vaud.  Etoy, Switzerlandswitzerland_family_photographerI used this photo to teach my son a lesson on indirect storytelling through photography.  We can tell he’s at the lake without seeing any water. St-Prex, Switzerlandswitzerland_family_photographerMore double-exposure goodness.  St-Prex, Switzerlandswitzerland_family_photographerMy son picked out this 30CHF skateboard last week and he only had 11CHF to spend.  I refused to give him a loan (he asked), but told him if he really believed that it would be his, it would.  Less than a week later, he has enough money plus six extra CHF by working for some neighbors and has also beaten a bad habit of biting his fingernails to earn this thing.  If you can see it in your mind, you can hold it in your hand.  Aubonne, Switzerlandswitzerland_nature_photographerMore swirly freelensing goodness.  St-Prex, Switzerlandswitzerland_family_photographerA typical Sunday walk for us.  This is very close to where two mummified bodies were found last week and also close to where I was airlifted off the mountain last year. Just a coincidence, I’m sure.  Col du Pillion, Switzerlandswitzerland_family_photographerCelebrating summer.  Above Aigle, Switzerlandswitzerland_family_photographerThere is nothing quite like bubbles to bring the kids around.  Suddenly, my son is the most popular child at the lake!  St-Prex, Switzerlandswitzerland_family_photographerOur new normal.  Such a privilege to live here.  St-Prex, Switzerlandswitzerland_family_photographerLove her sun-kissed curls.  St-Prex, Switzerland

  1. Summer color sun fun and wish I was there to hold the door for Annabelle! Belly button Remy, he has grown up so much…great color!

  2. Beautiful summer photos, but my favorite thing this week is the skateboard story. Work ethic is something many parents are not teaching. #kateisgreat

    1. It’s my favorite too. As great as that story is, here is something better: when we got to the store he found an even BETTER skateboard at a LOWER price!
