One thing was certain during Jen+Rick’s family shoot… little man did not want his picture taken. And these things can’t be forced… bribed, sometimes… but not forced. That’s ok though because we mostly wanted to get some shots of Addison. She is a complete doll… such a smiley, happy baby. We all know how crazy things become when the second child arrives, so I hope they enjoy the images that we captured of their little girl… and one of my favorite images from their session. Addy, ready for lift off…

Last night Kev and I went to see one of my most favorite artists in concert… Jason Mraz… at the Tower Theater in Upper Darby {photo taken with my point&shoot, which clearly does not focus}. I must say, it was one of the best concerts that I’ve ever been to. I absolutely love his music, but seeing him live just can’t be beat. He’s a performer. He jammed out on the guitar, barefoot, stopping to take polaroid photos of his band and throw them out to the crowd. He truly is an artist… his lyrics are creative and fresh, beats are often fun and upbeat. It’s the kind of music that can always make me happy. And he rocks a fedora like nobody’s business.

And I’ll leave you with a video of Kev and my favorite song off his new album. I love when he sings, “I’m holdin’ in the heat like a fishstick.” Ha. When we listen to it in the car Kev will create my very own remix version by rewinding that line over and over again. And that’s why I love him.

It is what you think it is. An entire mountain made up of mums. Ok, maybe mountain is a little excessive. It is a rather large mass of mums though, don’t you think? We were blessed with unseasonably warm weather this part weekend. We like that. On Saturday we visited a local greenhouse, Ott’s in Collegeville, to find that the mums were in full bloom. We must get some. Our garden is looking barren and could use a little sprucing up before wintertime hits. So we got red ones. Of course. And I felt like a child, so excited to be climbing mum mountain, camera in hand. We stood at the top and just took it all in… the warmth of the autumn sun, the sweet smell of flowers in the air, the bright and vivid colors all around us. I kinda like that place. 

The mid-day sun made for some tough shooting conditions. The light was bright and harsh. And I’m not used to that. But it is what it is, our perfectly imperfect Saturday afternoon…  

The infamous attempt at the self-portrait… Told you it was bright! {We didn’t mean to match, so please pretend you didn’t notice. Ha.}

  • Vanessa - Such pretty colors!!

  • Christy - How beautiful! I love the colors!

  • Kim - I just passed that place the other day and thought I should go out and practice with the pretty colors! You got some beautiful shots!

These two came for a family shoot but for a few, short minutes Krista entertained the kids and we managed to sneak in some shots of just the two of them. They are so sweet and rocked our little impromptu couples shoot. I loved it. With two little ones, I’m sure they don’t get much alone time so I hope they enjoy these images…  

I adore this image… the gorgeous light, the romantic feel… everything… 

Their family images are coming soon… !

The first Monster Monday post on my new blog and not even a photo of Chloe?!? Now that is a damn shame. She has been rather evasive lately, but I will try my best to have an adorable shot of her for next week. This week, we’ll discuss her new eating habits. 

We discovered that the maker of Chloe’s food has been bought and the food is now being made by another company that is, well… crappy. And we can’t have that. So we did some research online and through dogfoodanalysis.com and decided on a new food for her. We bought a small bag of Innova Evo to try it out and she LOVES it. Since we’re transitioning her, she gets some of her old food and some new. She likes the new stuff so much that she’ll pick through her food, eating all the pieces of the new food, and knocking the old food out of the dish to eat last. Makes a disaster of the kitchen floor but it cracks me up. And reminds me of how we’d eat Lucky Charms as a kid… How could you resist picking out those magically delicious marshmallows to eat first?
