So, this camp I was at last week is a Lithuanian Heritage Camp. I attended as a child, and I've brought my kids up attending, too. The best thing is, sometimes kids who aren't even Lithuanian descendants stumble upon the magic of Dainava and stick around. Remember yesterday's blog post? This kid here was that kid's bud when they were tiny. They moved apart geographically, so this kid asked if he could go to Dainava to hang out with that kid. Guess what? Nine years later, he's still loving camp life. He's just as enthusiastic as any other camper, and now kitchen worker. They've created ties to one another and to the place. And even though they live miles- cities- states apart- for one week a year, they're all home together.
This was my only evening shoot of the week. I enjoyed photographing "in reverse" as the sun set instead of rose. I love that this kid loves the camp spot so much, that he wanted his senior portraits taken there.
I really love the picture of Aedan standing!
He looks very handsome and happy!
