Happy Friday!

I am going to spare you the whining about how busy my life has been the past week or the fact I have been a photoshop nerd because I have been glued to my computer editing pictures from a beautiful October Wedding this past weekend. But it HAS been NUTS!!!! around here. So I am taking a deep breath and enjoying every little moment like this one :)

Tonight I finished up the last mini session for one of my Senior Reps! I LOVE LOVE LOVE the Fall and more than that I LOVE LOVE LOVE fall photo sessions. The colors are just amazing. Here are a few from our session today.

Am I the only one who ever feels like this? Kinda Lost in the Rat Race we call "life". Losing touch of why we are here and who put us here? Maybe for a purpose and what that could be? I know the answers to all this. Just sometimes I lose sight of what that looks like and what that feels like. Thank you God for days like this! Boy, I am so glad He has not given up on me :) I am so thankful for His wonderful Mercy!

Happy Wednesday!

Five Fact Friday!

_DSC6691 w

1. Saturday is my Boys Football Homecoming.

2. We have started our planning for the "G" Fall Bash 2010. We try but it doesn't always happen to have a Fall party with all our family and friends. We have broke a record and have the invites out ONE whole month before the event. Go Us!!!

3. I took my first "official" head shots this week for my niece Mae. (that still counts right) She needed them for an audition for a commercial. Here are a few

She is such a cutie! here is a little fun fact about Mae SHE LOVES SUGAR!!!!! If you know Mae you know exactly what I am talking about. Girl can put down some candy. How do you think she has lost her 2 front teeth. Just kidding, maybe? but I still love her to pieces.

4. My tattoo is healing great but it is itching beyond belief! I could take the pain of having a tattoo any day but the itching is ridiculous. And they tell you not to scratch it and instead "smack it". Yeah, I have had a time of strange looks as I am smacking my foot. I look like such a weirdo!

5. My new favorite lens is my 50mm 1.4 :) It has helped me with my camera envy. For now anyway.

This football season I have 3 boys on 2 different teams. So it can be a bit challenging at times for me to get them where they need to be. Oh boy, and throw in a photo shoot. YIKES!!! But we manage and I would not change it for nothing. I love watching my boys play.


Huddled up and ready to Play Ball!


That's one of mine on the top of the guy with the ball


another nice tackle assisted by his teammate


on the field he goes!


headed out for halftime


A-man with his Game Face On!


A-man letting me know they "got this"


Rog with the carry!


Another Win for us!!! Whoop Whoop! It was a close one but they totally "Had This"
Fall is my ABSOLUTE FAVORITE season! I love the cool brisk air and the trees turning golden red, brown, yellow and orange. I love pulling out my comfy sweaters. My favorite color is brown so it makes it even more appropriate to wear it everyday. I love FALL!
