Happy Haunting.
Okay....I downloaded these in no particular order. So here it goes - this year's monsters consisting of my four nephews, my niece and my two.

Up first...Haden. He was some kind of wrestler/zombie??

This one I claim as mine. He was a crazed graduate. He kept telling everyone that he was a graduate from Pitt University.

And, this is Georgie. I have no clue what he is suppose to be either. But whatever he is I think it is pretty cool looking.

This is Trent. Once again, I haven't a clue.

This is Alex. I know exactly what he is.

Lizzie was a black cat and Riley was a Princess Bride.

The dreaded "group" picture. What a scary looking bunch, hu?

Brrr....going for the loot. It was really chilly and the wind was a howling.

Give me all your candy, please!!

These are not my pumpkins. Just some lady down the block who always has the most amazing carved pumpkins. I just love them. Kind of sums up the whole spooky Halloween season.

Now that it is over - my kids are on to the next big holiday and asking about Christmas already...YIKES!

Autumn favorites.
Just wanted to share some autumn favorites of her. There is nothing better than the golden light this time of year. And, we are soaking it all up before the dreadful time change next weekend.

“In my life, as an artist, I will never create anything as beautiful as you already are…”

- Jesh de Rox

She totally loves these boots.

And, I totally love this one.

I was estatic and did a happy dance when we found this old truck off the beaten path. It reminded me of my grandfather's old Ford truck. Nothing like rusted metal to make me happy and squeal with delight.

I am thinking possible Christmas card potential here...what do ya think??

Terra + Jon ~ Wedding Sneak Peek
A few weekends ago, I shot another amazing wedding. I am so honored to be able to capture their day and be a part of it.

It was such a gorgeous day! And, when I say gorgeous, I mean the wedding was gorgeous. The day…I’m not gonna lie. It was a beautiful autumn afternoon! But, it was such an amazing ceremony. There was so much emotion that it was hard not to get caught up in it. I still cry at every wedding. Thank goodness it doesn’t affect my shooting because if someone else is crying, I usually am too.

So, here is the sneak peak to Terra and Jon's amazing day. Thank you so much Terra + Jon for allowing me to be a part of your special day!!

This is my absolute favorite time of year. I love the colorful days of autumn. I enjoy going after work for a walk down the driveway and seeing how the leaves have changed in a just a few hours time from when I left the morning of. There is nothing better than spending time in the cool, crisp, air and walking on the crunchy leaves.

Sid seems to be enjoying fall as well. He never stays still for a minute. I can only focus on his nose before he takes off through the yard.

And, to chew some mulch underneath the bush.

Lizzie Lou likes to pick out the yellow and red leaves.

She is always so willing to pose and give me her best smile.

More leaf picking.

And, more posing. She wanted me to take a picture of her with this leaf in between her new boots. Of course, I will always take pictures of her when she asks.

Then she is off again to chase after more leaves.

Love this girl.

Love these cool autumn memories and capturing her spirit.

A favorite.

I should mention that I do still have son. He just never wants to participate in our little adventures. Seems Sponge Bob takes presedence over autumn walks down the driveway....sigh. I knew those days would come.

Jessica + Bob Wedding Sneek Peek
I love my job. When I photograph weddings, I feel like I’m doing what I was meant to do.

I had the honor of shooting Jessica & Bob’s gorgeous wedding a few weekends ago. It was amazing, THEY were amazing. The setting was at the Allegheny Portage Railroad Ampitheatre and the day was just as gorgeous as they were. Jessica looked stunningly beautiful and everything fell perfectly into place. Lots of support and love from friends and family. See for yourself!! Even the whole bridal party was so easy to work with! They couldn’t have asked for a more gorgeous outdoor wedding.

Jessica & Bob, thank you for letting me be a part of your special day. I wish you a life long of happiness!

As promised, here is the video link below.

Thanks Kathy {from Max and Sid}!
Kathy thanks so much for the doggie treats . They were absolutely delish!! (I am speaking on doggie terms here -- and just assuming they were good - because they did gobble them up)

And, a picture of Max to prove it!!!!

Thanks, again!
