I’m not gonna lie – the weather has been STRESSING ME OUT 🙁 There is nothing like driving into PDX with the windshield whippers on wondering A) Why on earth the weathermen can’t get it right (predicted a dry morning with rain only in the afternoon) B. Will it ever stop raining on Sundays?
When I called Shelly to see if they wanted to reschedule her answer couldn’t have been better – nope this is where we live lets go for it! So we did and it totally paid off!
This large family was a dream to work with. 5 kids – no problem! Every single one of them (even Dad) 😉 was awesome. Which helped make the session fun.
This was the first time I have used this location and I loved it! The Fall colors were perfect and while there were umbrellas involved between shots it all worked out.
Actually the rain helps make the colors more vivid and I love the reflections from the concrete and wood.
This location off of Naito Parkway also offers some covered space which we took advantage of. I LOVE the red walls and old windows! Thank you Erwin Family for a fun shoot on a rainy Sunday morning! Your positive attitude on a rainy morning was inspiring!
Change of Season
When Winter changes to Spring it is beautiful. When Spring changes to Summer it is beautiful. When Summer changes to Fall it is breathtaking. When Fall changes to Winter ~ I struggle to find the beauty… A blanket of snow would be helpful! 😀
Starts with D -Dangerous!
Braxlee is his name and he is such a cutie!!! 9 months might just be the perfect baby age in my opinion!
It’s true when they are little you wish for less noise. But then they leave and it is oh so quiet….
Ty visited us a couple weeks ago. He was in another room and I suddenly heard it…he was playing his guitar. Something we use to hear on a daily basis. Tears sprang to my eyes. Oh how I miss the noises of my boys…
I am thankful for
I am thankful for the beauty of nature. It’s November and there is still color and beauty to be found. From a distance my hydrangea looks pretty sad, but up close, and with the right angle the colors are still vivid thanks to the rain wetting the petals.
I needed to take back drop shots for the graphic I made for my grand opening. I was feeling rushed and overwhelmed and frankly didn’t know if I would get to it. But as I pulled into my driveway I noticed the light was right. So I grabbed my camera and a basket of stuff and I headed out to the picnic table. As I began puttering my first thought was “I wish I had one of my more creative friends here to help me” but I decided to give myself a break and just started moving stuff around and I felt my shoulders relaxing and my heart lightening. The colors of nature are so vivid! Its amazing how gathering different bits and arranging them can be a calming experience.
Thanks for stopping by! Don’t forget you are invited –
