Childhood, summer, and playing outdoors | photography

There is something simply magical about the way children play, especially in the summer time. In many ways, I think our photography should take lessons from children. They aren’t afraid to experiment. If something goes wrong, so be it! Then they just start over with a new idea. I also love how children are so easily inspired by the world around them. It is impossible to imagine a child looking around and seeing nothing of interest, nothing of beauty. If only our lenses could capture the world through their eyes!

I love this collection of photographs. Three things that go so well together- childhood, summer, and playing outdoors (and photography!). I think several of these were set up similar to an outdoor studio to get the perfect shot, but probably not all of them. Which ones do you think were captured in the moment versus having the touch of a professional hand in the composition?
