Project 365: A Glimpse Of May • Children's Photographer Wakefield RI

I love May.  It's the first month, in Rhode Island at least, where we get a taste of more consistent spring.  Usually, at least!  The leaves and flowers are all coming out, everything looks alive again (and the lawn needs to be mowed!)  

It's also getting to be one of the busiest times of year for me as a children's photographer in Wakefield, RI.  This is absolutely wonderful, and it also means that my project 365 photos are becoming a bit more random (also:  lots of cat photos) as I search for photogenic subjects and pretty light each day.  Good thing there are lots of flowers in bloom now.  There are also lots of squirrels.  I couldn't help but photograph one at the beginning of the month.  My field trip to Narragansett Town Beach one day was one of the highlights...the ocean is wonderful!

Take a look at what went on in the first half of May.  And if you have a favorite Lionel the cat photo from this post, let me know which one it is in the comments!
