From the awful weather that plagued us for the beginning of the season, to all my client work recently and everything in between I haven’t had much time to really DO summer with my kids. It was such a long winter, and we all felt very cooped up inside all the time. We have been greatly enjoying the warmer weather of late, and in an effort to get our oldest used to the water for our upcoming family vacation we decided to get a little blow-up pool for the yard. BEST IDEA EVER! Not only did we finally get him to play in the water…. at least a little bit…. but our youngest LOVES it! It amazes me how different they are when it comes to things like that. Anyway, the first day we set it up I grabbed my camera real quick and snapped off a few shots just for me and while they may not be perfect technically they perfectly capture the excitement of the day and I think they are just too adorable. They grow up SOOOO fast!
On a little side note…. I mentioned our family vacation above. We are packing up and braving a LONG road trip to visit family in MN and WI for a few weeks. I don’t know if we are crazy or adventurous at this point but I am excited about it either way. I won’t be taking any more sessions before we leave, but will be back, ready to work by August 27th. So if you were considering booking a session yet this summer now is the time to save your spot! Hard to believe that by the time we get back summer will already almost be over!
The other night I had a session scheduled with J, with the purpose of getting images to use in an upcoming article in which he will be featured. His lovely wife (B) came along, and they asked me to get a few shots of the two of them while we were at it. I was more than happy to oblige for such a friendly couple.
With already more than 30 years of marriage under their belts, and being so obviously still in love, there is no doubt in my mind they have another 30 or more years together ahead of them. I wish them all the best, and I just wanted to say it was a pleasure meeting them!
Just a little late, but I have been having computer issues this past week. Anyway, here are some quick snaps of my family for Perrin’s Halloween Birthday Party. He turned 4 on the 30th! It was a lot of fun!
Here is the birthday boy himself…
I had told him to make a “mean face” in this one lol.
The two cutest little boys in the whole world!
Me and the kids…
That’s it. Thanks for looking! And Happy Halloween a little late!
Autumn is my favorite time of year. There is just so much to look forward to including the changing of the leaves, the cooler weather without it being TOO cold, the upcoming holiday season, and especially Halloween which has always been my favorite, and all the other festivities that come along with the season. It’s also a GREAT time to get family pictures done to send out in your Christmas cards or to give as gifts!

As many of you probably know October is the National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. So many people have lost loved ones to this horrible disease, and I myself lost my mother at age 51 this past May. She was an amazing woman, and in honor of her memory I would like to offer a special specifically to breast cancer survivors for the month of October. Details as follows…

Wow, how lucky to have 5 generations of amazing women in your family together at the same time! I had the absolute pleasure of capturing just that recently. I could not have asked for a more fun, or kind group of ladies to work with either. Even though the day was quite chilly, and our littlest model wasn’t very into the session they persevered and managed to keep a smile on their faces throughout. I am very thankful for the opportunity and I wish them all the best!
Well, here it’s been a while again and I have not updated my blog….. but in my defense I have been quite busy and was recently stranded for 3 weeks on the worst vacation ever! It was one of those vacations that EVERYTHING that could go wrong did, and I am just glad to be back home and finally getting caught up with things!
Anyway, this weekend seemed like the perfect opportunity to pack up my family and head out for some more recent shots of the kids and maybe to even get in a couple myself. I am not going to lie…. taking pics of my own family can be a very stressful occasion lol. They are so over my camera it’s not even funny. And getting some with myself in them is a whole new challenge since I have to set up the shot for my husband to take over, and let’s just say he doesn’t really understand my camera lol. So, with much patience, a few bribes, and LOADS of shooting we did manage to get some we were happy with and I thought I would share them with all of you!
