    97. Let Summer Begin

    Hey Friends

    This week it's all about summer.  Summer and then kids.  Summer, and the kids, and capturing those moments.  They're getting older.  Maybe wiser.  Definitely more annoying... kidding.  But you don't want to be stuck wishing you could capture more of those moments.  Get them now.  We reflect on what it's been like with the kids growing into their tween/adolescent years.  And how even we turn to the academy for tips and tricks about capturing summer in these awkward growing years.

    Be sure to check out the Capturing Adolescence course: https://hellostoryteller.com/product/capturing-adolescence/ over on the HS Website.  And it's time for Summer Bingo.  Head over to https://hellostoryteller.com/summer-blackout-bingo-contest/ for more information on rules on how to play.

    Have Fun and Welcome to Summer, Friends!

Love Listening While Driving

This podcast is so fun to listen to. I drive quite a bit and love listening while I’m in my car. It feels like you’re sitting right there with them. I also love hearing about the different photographers and how they got started and their lives in their part of the country.

Tried to like it…

I really tried to like this podcast but it just feels like one big ad for their courses.

Changing my review!

First honest and vulnerable podcast I’ve heard from Meg! Felt like she put aside the big and loud remarks and actually let herself be real. If this continues, the podcast will be awesome!
