Fall fun...and the foliage session :)

Before I head out for one last hurrah of a family vacation this week before school starts, I wanted to share another fall, family session from 2015.  I already had several people book some precious weekend time slots for this year, so if your schedule isn't super flexible this fall (and who's is, really???) contact me now to get your date booked!  I promise it's not too early!  

This family started off as clients 4.5 years ago with the birth of sweet Claire and are now close friends that we treasure.  Every year is so different when we shoot because, well, they've always had toddlers :) :)

Toddlers = Unpredictability.  This session we deemed appropriately, the year of the foliage.  Little W gathered and collected any and all of the treasures he could find on the ground and they made their way as a perfect pop of color and texture into their photos.  You just can't reason with a 15 month boy over sticks, leaves and rocks.  Haha!

fall portraits??? what, what???

I can't believe I'm saying this myself, as I'm hiding in my air condition-blasting-office, as I escape the hottest part of the day, but this is temporary...very temporary.  It'll be fall before we know it if the next few weeks go as fast as this summer has gone and so it's time to start thinking about fall family sessions!  I have to admit, it's a little exciting to think about fall and cooler weather, even though I'm hanging on to this summer and all the limited days I have left with my kids home and the lax routine we've all thoroughly enjoyed.  Every season brings something to look forward to and I just got all in the mood for cute sweaters and leggings cruising through the Nordstrom Anniversary sale!  That got your attention??  You have a few more days to grab some great fall staples and be ahead of the game so jump on there, start planning and email me some dates you have free!  I love fall and reconnecting with my families, but my kids activities also take up a lot of room on my calendar, so get with me asap as my shooting schedule is limited.  

Since I'm horrible with blogging, I am going to be sending gentle reminders over the next few weeks by blogging some of my fall 2015 sessions that never made it to the web.  Up first was one of my favorites because A) I LOVE and adore this family, and B) I love wine :)  Combine the 2 (no, we didn't drink wine during our session, but that would have been awesome!) and you get a gorgeous family and a beautiful background for some fall portraits!
