Day 272

I think this little bumble bee was on his death bed... every once in a while it would wiggle its antenna, other than that he would hanging out.

Day 270

I received a lovely surprise in the mail today from my friend, and fellow muse, Suki!

"Love is something that can't be payed or earned. Love comes from the bottom of your heart. Loving someone you don't even know, can transform your life and the other person. Don't be afraid and reach out, I know it will be great!"

Thank you Suki, this is just what I needed!

Snack and relax time :)

Fall is here!

I am excited to announce that I am moving things forward on this blog and my business!  To celebrate, and enjoy this beautiful season in upstate NY I am doing some mini sessions now through the end of October.  Here are the details:

1 hour session for 1-6 people ($25 for each additional person).  You will get 15-20 images on a high resolution dvd, fully edited and printing release, for $100.  

If you are interested please email me at, I will only be scheduling a certain amount of sessions during this time!

Campbell Family

I was so excited when my friends from high school asked me to take some family pictures for them.  I had so much fun chasing their little boy around, who didn't sit still for more than 5 seconds :)  His big blue eyes melt my heart!

Mr H really wanted to "blow bubbles" instead he ended up tasting a whole bunch of soap :)
Thanks Thaina, I had so much fun and I can't wait for you to see the rest :)

Cowan Family Pictuers

That beautiful mama and I played volleyball together when we were seniors in high school, almost 9 years ago!  And I hadn't seen her since then.  But with the wonderful world of facebook and blogging we have gotten back in touch over the last couple of years.  She is a wonderful photographer as well, and while I was visiting my family in Utah she took pictures of my family and visa versa.  So here is a, very large, sneak peek!  (sorry it took so long!)

Isn't this the most gorgeous family!

We went to a park with a fun playground for the kids to play around on.  We had the craziest weather and almost canceled because we thought it was going to pour.  Instead we had some moody clouds, a little drizzle, some sunshine and a couple yummy rainbows!

You guys are stunning!  Thanks for making such cute kids :)  I had so much fun!!!

PS to all my 365 friends, she just started one as well, go and show her some love!
