Summer’s Last Hurrah {Cicero, New York Portrait Photographer}

This weekend, we had one last hurrah before the start of the new school year.  The weather was cool and very windy and it rained a lot today.  But other than that, it was a nice end to summer.  We stayed at my parents' cottage north of here on a small lake…I'm sure I've posted pics from there before.  :)  So the boys enjoyed their usual frog hunting, fishing, and swimming.  We also taught them how to play slap jack. The youngest had trouble remembering what it was called, so we had interesting variations including "flap jack" and "smack jack". LOL

At one point while fishing, hubby told the youngest to "kiss the fish".  And he made that scrunched up "eeewwww" face you see in this upper right photo.  Ha ha ha  And when he was reeling in his next catch he said, "It's a BIG one" while older brother demonstrated and told him to reel faster. The fish was maybe 6 inches long. LOL


Lots of small perch and sunfish were caught that day…not only with the traditional fishing poles, but also with nets.  The boys swam underwater with their nets in hand and were catching the fish like that.  They called it scuba fishing (but without the scuba gear) – LOL. 

Good fun was had by all.  And now we look forward to the arrival of fall.


About Kim Hill

I’m passionate about my work and helping women feel comfortable in front of my lens. I want women to feel confident and sexy regardless of age or size. All women are beautiful and I'm here to help them see the beauty in themselves and the boudoir photographic experience is one step in that direction. I am dedicated to bringing a high-quality experience to the boudoir portrait session. My goal is to offer a fun yet relaxing environment where a woman can let down her guard, allowing that inner sparkle to shine. I’ve been a photographer for more than 25 years now. I started as a young child with my parents' 110 film camera, moved on to study photography in college, interned with a wedding photographer for a couple of years and then struck out on my own. I've been doing general portraits since 1998 and boudoir work since 2009. In addition to boudoir, I also offer high school senior portraits, fashion inspired sessions, and business executive head shots.

    My youngest won’t let me change the page. He loves to fish and is standing behind me yapping about how your boys must be having a ton of fun. We love summer. So bittersweet that it’s coming to an end.
