‘I found this hat shopping today and couldn’t resist busting out the camera! Notice the theme? Drool!

James was ready to rip that camera right out of my hands!

I pushed my luck just a little further and took it inside. Just like with Alanna, James gave me his winning face at the end. ENOUGH ALREADY!

Guilt is a feeling I was told would never go away once I had a child. Five months into it, I have not proved anyone wrong. I woke up today feeling guilty for not spending enough time with James. Although I work from home, so many things keep me occupied, that the little fellow does not get my undivided attention. That being said, I grabbed James in his new Fall clothing and went for a crispy walk to Polliwog Park. Who knew that a five month old could have so much fun in the leaves!

These shoes kill me!

This morning started out with a tutu, fairy wings, and a 6 month old. So fun! Alanna was an excellent model. She enjoyed being dressed up, playing with flowers, and giggling (and frowning). Here are a few of my favorites from this shoot.

I really like color in my photos, whether it be faded and vintage, or bursting with rich hues. However, these two photos scream black and white to me. It makes you focus on the happiness between Alanna and her mom, Christine.

Alanna taking a bite out of her mom’s chin :) So cute!

I couldn’t resist the pudgy little tummy and adorable toes!

And she’s up!

and of course, the best for last! Alanna had enough of me!

Today I had a great day with my Uncle. I wanted to take an environmental portrait of him. He has more hobbies than I can count and is excellent at all of them. Because of that, I thought the portrait session would be easy. Ha! I was wrong. Photographing your own family is quite an adventure. “You’re not doing it right.” “Why don’t you stand over there and shoot.” “You’re not doing enough vertical shots of me.” You get my drift, right?

Finally at the end of the day, when we said we were all done,  I got my shot. This picture to me, is my Uncle. He loves his garden and always has something nice to give me.

My husband, Nicholas, and I LOVE Halloween. I won’t even dare to show you all of the costumes we’ve had throughout the years. Having a baby in time for this past Halloween took it to a whole new level. We not only dressed ourselves up, but the little munchkin too! Poor fellow wore three costumes this year! hehehe.

This costume was definitely for my husband. I got “wife of the year” for dressing the family as Star Wars :)

We decided to go to the pumpkin patch a couple of weeks before Halloween to get some prized photos. No one was dressed up accept for our group (my wonderful idea of course). Everyone at the pumpkin patch thought we worked there! So embarrassing, but I secretly love it!
