One of my favorite parts of the start-to-finish process of photography is getting my images printed. Lately I am resolution-averse (especially since the advent of my personal motherhood journey), but I did set out this year do more printing of my images, particularly in photo book format. It is very satisfying to hold a tangible item in my hands and to be able to pour over it with my children, like my husband and I both did with our parents when we were growing up.
I have made a bunch of photo books this year, most recently one which I absolutely love, from MyPublisher. It is filled with images from our summer vacation down on Tybee Island, one of the barrier islands along the Georgia coast. This is the image I used on the cover.
I am getting better at relaxing and not having an agenda while on vacation. My agenda is usually not terribly ambitious but it often includes a “plan” to read too many books and some kind of “thing” that I declare I will catch up on (like editing old photos, for instance). During our past few vacations my plan has been to not have a plan. I think that is why I like this photo. It is as relaxed and carefree as what the locals refer to as “Tybee Time.”
