I love kids. I remember being in such a rush to grow up and now I long for the freedom of being a child. We think we’ll be free when we reach adulthood but little do we know that childhood is true freedom. I wish I could get that message across to my kids: enjoy that feeling of complete adventure and spontaineity that you have right now, absorb every minute of your innocence, but I sound like an adult when I say those things.

It took about a millisecond to convince these kids to lay on the grass and roll down the slope of their backyard; their parents are probably going to remember me for a long time thanks to my little idea. :)  If I could postpone twilight and hadn’t had 20 lbs. of photographic equipment on me, I would have rolled down the hill with them (again, adult thinking). In retrospect, I wish I would have and then their parents would remember me for a long time as a complete lunatic.

These kids have the most amazing personalities; we hit it off right away and although I didn’t roll down the hill with them we did hold hands and skipped down the road together. Here are some of my favorites from our afternoon.

I just can’t stay indoors with this mild, gorgeous weather and the splashes of jewel tone colors everywhere. Fall is my favorite season and I am taking full advantage of it this year. My favorite shots of the day… :)

Whenever I have a little bit of down time in my schedule inevitably the camera turns to my own children. Especially at the age of two just a couple of months make a huge difference in the way they look and express themselves. So this weekend me and my favorite toddler enjoyed the change in weather in our own backyard, and while she discovered leaves, acorns, and pointed out squirrels, I snapped and soaked it all in.

As a photographer, I am always behind the camera and seldom in front of the lens. So, determined to get some family photos this past weekend, I took the DIY route and captured some fun and cute moments of my troup. Here are my favorites:

You can feel it in the air, mornings and evenings are cooler, the light is getting softer, you can actually breathe when you go outside rather than trying to aspire vapor. The days of green grass, slip-and-slides, and popsicles are once again coming to an end.

For my kids, that means spending every afternoon in the backyard, walking barefoot on the soft green grass, doing scavenger hunts and decorating the concrete driveway with whimsical landscapes rendered in pastel colored chalk. And I happily shoot away the array of colors.

Her favorite tree…

Planning out her next move…

Our golden retriever Pepper likes to supervise.

I want to be two again. There are new things to discover and master every.single.day. You are fed on demand, read to, played with on a daily basis by a team of people who hug you constantly, laugh at your every silly stunt, and just find you irresistible. You have no care in the world. Here is my youngest being herself. I may just hop onto bed and jump with her next time.

I spent my afternoon today with these two adorable kiddos. They have the bluest eyes I have ever seen just like their beautiful mama :) This little girl may very well be Justin Beaver’s youngest fan, at the tender age of 1 she already knows his top hit “Baby, baby” and can’t stop jamming to it.

Thank you for choosing me to be your photographer! Enjoy your sneak peek!

This is one of the girls I photographed this weekend. She was just too cute with her toothless grin.
