One of my very favorite times of the year is fall – I love the cooler temps, the rich, autumnal tones, the delicious flavors of the holiday season. I’ve been busy photographing my sweet babies and wanted to share some recent favorites. I have been neglecting my blog as of late, so hopefully this will fill people in a bit on what I’ve been up to with my photography. :)
This first image was a bit of a happy accident. I threw this together last minute after the kids returned home from school. I had this glorious red gown that I wanted to photograph Calista in, but hadn’t found the time or motivation to do so yet. We arrived at my determined location late, and the pretty back light that usually peeks in through the trees was all but gone. I snapped a few shots, but was pretty depressed thinking I got absolutely nothing worthwhile. I am normally excited to pull the images from my card as soon as I return home from a shoot, but these images sat on the card for days. I only uploaded them when I had another shoot on the card that I needed to grab. BOY, was I surprised when this image leaped off the screen at me! It is now officially one of my favorite images ever of my gorgeous daughter!
You may remember the ‘leaf baby’ photos I took of Gabriel last fall when he was just a baby. I decided to expand on that theme this year. Have I mentioned yet how much I LOVE autumn?
My sweet and tenderhearted little Elliott… <3
Now please excuse me while I switch seasons here for a minute. I realized I had not yet shared these images from late summer, and I LOVE them – therefore, they must be posted. We had an epic monsoon season this year and got so much needed rain! That rain resulted in some of the most gorgeous, lush fields of flowers I have ever seen. Yes, in the desert!
The beautiful connection between my 2 youngest babies makes my heart sing. They truly are the best of friends. <3
This is just a small sampling of my recent work – there is much more on my Facebook Page if you’d care to take a look. Thank you so much for taking the time to view my photography! :)
