Happy Holidays!!!

I am officially taking a break until Spring of 2010.  I am wishing each and every one of you a wonderful holiday season!  I will still be blogging every now and then, but on a more personal level.  And to start it off I wanted to show you the making of our holiday card this's pretty humorous! :)

Things started out a little crazy...


And about 30 photos later I get a good one of Mason, lol.

Then after another 20 photos I get a good one of Zoie and Olive

After a LOT of Photoshop magic I get this...

Next I designed the card and plopped in the photo and volia....our holiday card!

Fun Family Session

The weather around here has been so terrible!  Cold and rain almost everyday...we FINALLY had a couple of nice days, just long enough to get some great shots of my friend Kara and her daughters!  Check out the bright yellow leaves, so awesome!

Queen Ann's Lace

My daughter has been one of my FAVORITE subjects since I've started this crazy hobby [she was about 2].  She always follows my direction and is
definitely a little model...loving every minute of it.  I think these photos of her were the best I've gotten to date.

Fall is in the air

Fall has definitely arrived....a little too quickly if you ask me.  Wearing sweatshirts and chilly nights are upon us.  I'm hoping it will warm up again in the next couple of weeks, but we'll see.  This cooler weather has brought on a baking frenzy.  Something about Fall just makes me want to bake.  My latest was banana turned out really yummy!

Football Time

Great family. Great location. Great weather. Need I say more? :)

I've known this family for over 4 years! The girls have changed so much over the years, they are so grown up now. Every time I do a new session my kids tag along and they NEVER want to leave. They have so much fun! Here are some of my favorites from last night, enjoy...

I just love a candid moment :)

I decided to take (or should I say drag) the kids out for one more shoot before school starts. I can't believe my little guy is starting school this year. **sniff, sniff**

State Competition :-)

I was beyond excited to see that all 3 of my photo entries were hanging up at the State Fair this year! It may not sound all that thrilling to some of you, but there are over 1,000 photos entered and they only have room for so many. Not to mention there is some really tough competition! My next goal is to actually place, lol. There's always next year! :-P

I told my kids they were celebrities, haha! Oh, and please excuse the camera phone.
