In the craziness of going to Europe, having a staycation with friends, and then adopting Tommy, there are a few major events from the summer that I documented but never shared. As we reached about the 2.5 month mark with Tommy, I regained the energy and focus to spend more than a few minutes at a time editing photos. (And yes, he’s now 3.5 months old. It’s still taking me a while to edit photos.) While these summer memories posts won’t be very timely, I’m still excited to share them with you.
Milwaukee has an active photography community, and a handful of local photographers and organizations host Instagram meetups throughout the year. I’ve been following several meetup accounts for a few years now and finally made it to two meetups in June, one in Kenosha (which I’m sharing today) and one in Milwaukee (which I’ll be sharing in a future post).
If you’re active on Instagram but have never been to an Instagram meetup, I highly encourage you to do so if you ever get a chance. Whether you have 400, 4,000, or 400,000 followers, you’ll enjoy connecting with other photographers, capturing shots together, and talking geek photography stuff your friends and family may not want to talk about with you all the time.
