This family, gosh I love them. I get so excited when fall rolls around and it’s time for our annual shoot. This year we decided to head down to 5th Street Public Market and I am beyond in love with how these images turned out! It kind of helps that Marley is seriously the cutest thing ever —- I mean come on! Is she for real?
We had such a fun afternoon exploring the market, taking photos and eating sour patch kids, of course. Here is a handful of my favorites.

“she balanced the book on her head”
As of late I have lacked balance. In my personal and professional life. My poor blog has been ignored as well as my laundry. I am so so so thankful for all of the fantastic business I have had this fall. I have had the pleasure of working with some really wonderful, amazing people, people who instantly I knew would turn into not just great clients but great friends as well. I thought I was “prioritizing” my clients to come first but what I have realized is without a balance to my work life as well as home life I am really doing everyone a disservice. I always want to give 110% but have realized this is simply not possible if I am trying to give 110% 110% of the time. It doesn’t add up and it makes for a grumpy groggy me.
I have always found it incredibly hard to say “no” when it is something I love. A craft sale benefiting a great charity? Sign me up! Picking up a friend from the airport? Absolutely! A chance to meet some new clients and capture a special time in their life? You know I am ALL about it. And the thing is I really don’t ever want to say no to any of these things. I enjoy what I do so very much and truly love my crazy busy life! But there needs to be balance. AND…maybe a touch more organization for this right brain creative.
Sigh…If only there were a few more hours in the day (who among us hasn’t wished for this wish a handful of times?!)
Here’s a sweet baby tummy for your Tuesday!

That’s right guys it is officially, as of today September 22nd, my favorite season!Not only do I love Fall for it’s amazingly beautiful colors, for the absolutely perfect ‘golden’ hour and for sunsets that light the sky on fire… (although I really really love Fall for all of these reasons!)
I love Fall because it means football. LOTS of football.
I love Fall because it means gorgeous boots and scarves and cozy sweaters.
…because it means I can indulge my pumpkin addiction as often as I like in almost any form I want (pumpkin oreos?? I’m not totally sold but I mean it seems like I should probably give them a chance….)
…..because it means Halloween and Thanksgiving. Dressing up crazy and eating tons of delicious food, need I say more?
And one of the things I truly love most is all of the amazing client sessions I shoot throughout the fall<3 Each and every one always turns into such a fun day and looking back over the years they always seem to turn into my favorite sessions.
What are some of your favorite things about Fall? I would love to hear about them here in the comments section!
OK. Now back to editing!!!
