photo share: another summer tradition

In addition to our Renaissance Fair tradition, Jake and I also got to do newer tradition last month: Lobster Fest. Some friends of ours in Milwaukee have been hosting it for a number of years, and we've been lucky/fortunate (not really sure of the best word here) to attend twice now. Some of you may remember that it inspired me to write an article last year.

This is the first set of photos that I shot in RAW and edited with Lightroom. I've had a huge backlog of photos all summer and have been doing my best to keep editing the larger sets (things like Etsy listing photos don't count) in chronological order. I broke my rule to do this set, though. Enjoy.

First ever Lobster Fest games.

One of our friends is really sweet about making sure that I get to be in at least one of the pictures. (And Jake won the lobster crawl, which is why he's wearing the medal.)

Do you have any summer traditions?


  1. Great photos and editing! Those lobsters look really tasty =)

  2. Your fire photo is awesome! Looks like such a fun day!

  3. Mmmm, lobster! Love the fire photo! What is the difference between RAW and not? I mean the photo shoot of course, not the lobster! :)

  4. Great shots! Looks like a lively event!
    I love the light reflected in the babies eyes :)

  5. Lobsterrrrrr! Our summer tradition is also food related: Rib Fest!
