a saturday photo walk

last saturday i woke up with the sun & met three of my good girlfriends for a photo walk around our downtown square. my friend, nikki of nikki toth photography, is a professional photographer & guided us on our photo walk. she has amazing talent (she took our family photos last year!) & a wealth of knowledge. it was such a gift to learn a bit from her.

here are a few snapshots from my camera on our walk...

a lot of my creative work is task-driven & marked with deadlines. it was incredibly inspiring to spend the morning with just my camera & a few girlfriends shooting at my leisure. i left feeling recharged & spent the rest of the day crafting & sewing. 

thanks so much, ladies! i can't wait to do it again! xo.

have you ever gone on a photo walk? how to you recharge creatively & get inspired? please share!

I Love Fayetteville's square. I can't get there very often - I shop Siloam Springs Farmer's Market because it's closer. I want to get back over there to see how the flowers have grown over the summer.

Wandering around and taking photographs is one of my absolute favorite ways to explore a city! There are so many great details that you notice through a camera lens. Of course it is also a great way to explore without spending a lot of money!

Oh, wow, beautiful shots! I love the first photo especially.
I also usally take my camera with me whenever I go for a walk. Sometimes I feel inspired and stop all the time to take photos, sometimes I just don't take any, but I love trying to look at the landscape with a (totally amateur) photographer's eye, noticing light, shadows, and little details. I always come home feeling so relaxed after that.

This is such a great way to get out and see how beautiful things are around you. You don't have to spend money or go far away to be inspired in our beautiful state!
