Autumn’s Beginning

We had the first day of Autumn recently, and so far, we’ve had a few days with cooler weather in the morning and evening that remind us that fall is here. But on Sunday, when we shot this senior session at Shaker Village, it felt like the middle of Summer. There was no breeze. None. I’m not even sure there was much air, really. I sweated buckets. I won’t lie to you, it wasn’t pretty for me. To top it off, I had been fighting a head cold all weekend, so I was sweaty and germy. That’ s a great visual, right?

On the other hand, my gorgeous senior client looked immaculate. If she was sweating, she was sweating on the inside. She looked perfectly and amazingly beautiful throughout the entire session. Clearly I need to take a lesson or two from her.  Soft spoken, shy and super sweet, she rocked her session like a supermodel. What a genuine sweetheart. She will be majoring in Engineering next fall at a yet determined school so she has the brains to go with the beauty. She’s got it going on!

A Plethora of Sneak Peeks

I had a full weekend of sessions this past weekend, so I am going to boil it down to one sneak peek. It started with a funny, adorable group of cousins and siblings for some photos for the grandparents, a 6-(okay 7) month milestone session for one of my favorite baby girls, a 9-month milestone session combined with some family photos for one of my favorite baby boys, and it ended with a senior session for a gorgeous senior with big brown eyes.

That’s a pretty awesome way to spend a weekend, don’t you think?!?!

Sparkly Shoes and the Yellow Ball

There is no shortage of personality with this crew.

With one who insisted on wearing her fastest, sparkliest of shoes (I was terribly jealous) and another who spent a lot of time chasing his bright yellow ball, these 42-year-old legs and knees were put through a serious workout during this session. But they were so much fun that it was totally worth every snap, crackle and pop my joints made. 🙂 We had a beautiful evening at the Arboretum and after burning off some serious energy, I’d guess everyone slept well that night. I can vouch for one of us, anyway.
