So yesterday morning I woke up at 4am. And then again at 4:10am. And then finally got vertical at 4:20am – so that I could rush to finish packing up my gear and catch a 6am flight to Atlanta. Once there, I picked up a rental car and drove 2 hours out to Lake Martin, Alabama where I met up with The Gorecki Family. They flew me out to photograph their family, as well as their brother’s – and we also did a documentary-style capture of their fun, highly adventurous afternoon out on the lake.

It was such a beautiful day, and we really captured some fantastic stuff, which I’ll be sharing soon … after I wake up! I counted my modes of transportation yesterday as I walked through the door of my house, 20 hours later – car to plane to shuttle to car to boat to jet ski back to boat back to car to shuttle to plane to car. And I’m not even counting the airport’s concourse trams!! :)
