To the Sunshine....

PHOTOGRAPHY AND TEXT BY KEVIN MULLINS

It's that time of year again, as I pen this, that I'm counting down the hours to my annual vacation.

I work hard throughout the year, and mostly I have one goal:  a month off in August.

My wedding photography colleagues liken this to Santa Claus taking December off.  But for me, it's always been tacit that August = summer & sun  (something that we did have in the UK back in 1977 (apparently)).

I'm always very conscious of the fact that I'm "into photography" for a better way of life.  As most of us are.  I chose to leave the rat-race and become a wedding photographer because I wanted to explore photography, but, putting it very bluntly, I wanted to make the life I have with my family.....well, just better.

I adore creating long lasting memories for other people, like the ones above.  I get a buzz when I'm looking back at pictures I've created and I'm pleased.  And proud.

But I can't wait to start creating more summer memories of my own, for my family like these ones:

Until the Autumn folks.....
