Decorating For Winter

It feels like a pine-cone kind of winter this year.  I can't seem to get enough of them,
 real or decorative.

It's the little things she does that melts my heart, like asking for a new photo
shoot early in the morning and telling me that we need to use props. :)

There is nothing so soothing to me as piano on a rainy Autumn morning.  It has this magical effect as if I'm
pouring my soul into the music and the world has joined in, our tears as one.  It always fascinates me,
the way weather affects mood.

It's a beautiful time of year ♥
I wish it could last but I know that it will soon be over, the leaves will have fallen,
and winter will be here.

The charm of fishing is that it is the pursuit of what is elusive but attainable,
a perpetual series of occasions for hope.  ~John Buchan

a favorite

First, as requested, a special price list for my local high school seniors:

And second, because I cannot post without a bit of pretty, an image in honor of my favorite author
and her beautiful story that I can read time and again.  Thank you Jane Austen for the perfect book ♥

After The Storm

I love the haziness that comes after a storm.  

We had a tornado warning yesterday.
I don't know if your phones do this but mine alerts me to extreme weather.  It blares an alarm
that literally sounds like an alarm you would hear in school.  So, my phone is going off and my poor Lil'
Miss starts panicking.  I'm not sure how they've handled tornado drills at school this year but I'm not
thrilled with the result.  She is crying, yelling, and just plain scared out of her wits as we head to the
basement.  It took at least a half hour to calm her down (so not thrilled with the effect of the school's drills).
When we resurfaced and the rain stopped, I took her outside to see just how beautiful everything looks
after a good storm.  We found a rainbow and the hazy glow of the sun through the extremely humid air
made everything look magical.  She loved seeing the after effect and hopefully it was beautiful enough
to take away some the panic when the next warning comes.

Bye Bye Blackbird

A vintage styled session with my daughter.  I think I am the luckiest mom
to have her.  She is always willing to let me try out new ideas for photos
on her.  I'll say to her lets try this and she immediately comes back with
how do you want my hair and makeup, what are you thinking for clothes.
This is when I get to play, this is when I really have fun!

More photos from the shoot are on my Facebook page.
