Trick or Treat!

Happy Halloween! This post is more of a treat than a trick. I LOVE Halloween, so today I am feeling extra fun and excited, and I would like to pass the excitement on to my loyal blog readers! One lucky commenter, who comments anytime before midnight tonight, will receive a free 30 minute session! The commenter will be selected at random, so just hang out at the blog for a while and comment away on any post you wish. Have a great day!

Also, I would like to draw your attention to the right side of the screen. I have a little poll going. I would appreciate it oh so much if you would let me know how you found out about me!

Oh yeah....
My kids have been in their costumes since 8am this morning. This is my scary shark!

Leaves Are Falling

Isn't this such an amazing time of year?! Something about these images just seems so nostalgic and relate-able for everyone. Don't these just bring back those carefree feelings of childhood?

Same Time Next Year

I am a little sad to say that October is almost over, and here is the very last pumpkin patch post! These little girls were so sweet and cute. I enjoyed every minute with them.

Just one today...

I was working on some more editing for recent senior shoots and wanted to share this image. I think she looks so natural and happy. I have been experimenting with some new editing techniques also, and I really liked the way they turned out.

Cute little "A" spent some time last week exploring in my backyard. We had tons-o-fun with some oh so cool tractors and watching the horses.

Family Fun

Family sessions are so fun...this one especially! This adorable family is close friends of ours, and it was so good to see them last weekend. I can tell that it has been too long because two of the three kids didn't remember me! Enjoy...

^ Little "K" was such a HAM, I loved it!

Brides, write this one down...

I have had an increasing number of brides requesting images like these...

This is so fun to send out to guest who couldn't make it to your wedding or as a wedding announcement. Writing "Thank You" on the cards is also a nice little touch for a print to send out with your thank you cards.

Here are a few shots from a recent mentoring session I did. I love to hear from future photogs who are so excited about the world of photography that they are just overflowing with questions for me! In this mentoring session we went over the basics, some lighting, studio portraits, and some post processing.

^Some funky vintage post processing

Feel free to contact me if you are interested in a mentoring session, whether you are an up and coming photographer or a mom who just wants to be able to take some great pics of the kiddos! These sessions are also so much fun for moms groups!

These two brothers were just so cute, and I loved the shirts!

Don't worry, I will be breaking up the pumpkin patch sessions with some wedding action and a mentoring session...stay tuned!

Another Day, Another Pumpkin!

How adorable is little "P" at the patch!? Cutest little monkey I've ever seen! You may have noticed that I am completely obsessed with pumpkins. I LOVE October. I think I have spent the majority of my time the past two weeks at the pumpkin patch, and I have enjoyed every minute of it!

More Pumpkin Patch Kids...

I had a great time on Saturday with these two little pumpkins at the patch...

I am heading out to the patch tomorrow for a few sessions, so expect lots more cuties!

Littlest "L"

I had the pleasure of photographing 2 week old "L," and I really do have to say that it was a pleasure. He was SO incredibly sweet and calm. I don't think he cried once. I always get excited to do a newborn session because it means I get to hold those sweet, tiny things! Thanks mom for letting me meet the little guy!
