Unveiling The Summer Photo Challenge

Can you believe summer is already here? I for one am super stoked. Warm sun. Flip flops. Thunderstorms. Barbecues. Freshly cut grass. Days spent poolside. Crickets chirping. Fireflies buzzing. So many new photo ops just waiting to be seized.

The new summer photo meme is...

{Drum roll please...}

Lazy Crazy Days of Summer.

I couldn't be more excited about this new photo challenge. I am teaming up with the lovely Kristi of Live and Love out Loud to bring you this fun summer meme that will run June 3rd thru Aug 26th. We are calling it "Crazy Days of Summer" because I don't know about you, but I have yet to experience those mythical lazy days they speak of with these two crazy heathens kids running around.

Grab your calendars. It will be a weekly meme that runs every Friday starting at 12:01AM. We will handpick some of our favs for our Top 5 Pics of the Week. They will be announced the following Thursday at 12:01AM and featured on both of our blogs.

So come join us this Friday, June 3rd. The theme is flowers. Hopefully by now you have something pretty growing in your garden. And if you have a brown thumb like myself, take a stroll through your local park or nursery.

If you like to plan ahead, here is the complete schedule for the month of June.

Week 1, 3rd- Flowers
Week 2, 10th- Refreshing
Week 3, 17th- Water
Week 4, 24th- Yellow

Share your favorite images inspired by the Crazy Days of Summer theme-of-the-week and grab our sweet button while you're at it!

  1. What a great challenge! Can't wait to see all the beautiful photos I know are coming:)

  2. oooh, this sounds fun! i'm in :)

  3. squeeee! I am SO on this! My plan this summer is to up my picture taking practice- and this goes right a long with it! I am "the official second shooter" at weddings for a good friend whos a photog, but then I kinda slack on the time off. I need this push to get out and take pics that arent random ones of my kids :) and you were right the first time- summer is coming, the HEATHENS are ready!

  4. yay! Love it and love the button. :)

  5. This is awesome - I just wrote down the prompts and I'll see what I can do. I'll add the button to my photo challenge page.

  6. We're heading into Winter here :( But I'll see what I can do!! Love the button :D

  11. Does the photo have to have been taken in the week prior to the date or can it have been a couple week ago??? I have some lovely flower pictures... but I took them a couple weeks ago in May??? what are the "rules" about this???
