We roasted hot dogs and marshmallows last weekend:

If you look at Jackson's face in this one, you can tell how good of a mood he was in..........

I have a ton of snaps to share, you're going to regret asking! I love that one of Carson you shared in the CC group, Steph -- such a great shot!! The "bull riding" shot is great -- looks like SO much fun! All of the shots there look like a great family day. That last one cracks me up. And the picture of Jackson with the funny face (the second shot) makes me laugh too.
This was a "princess castle" project the kids wanted to do. Ours, ahem, didn't look like the magazine the idea came from. But the kids were pretty proud of them, nonetheless.
We went to have a tour of a factory that makes very large tire rims, as you can see. The kids looked so cute in their safety vests and goggles!
No good pictures at the pumpkin patch, but this one did make me laugh:
I like the light on this, even if it is a noisy ISO 500,000
Micah is becoming such a ham lately:

Not many pictures from me lately. Here are a few of James I took last week.
This is what he did when he saw my camera. Got all excited and started crawling quickly towards me.

And just one of Nathan. This is his school photo from kindergarten. I'm so glad I ordered the digital option because the color on it was just SO bad! Also, I decided I liked a blue background way better.

Steph ... I really love that 3rd one of Carson, but WHEN did he start looking so BIG?! the back lighting is AWESOME in that shot! The pumpkin patch looks like a lot of fun!
Tracy ... LOVE the castle projects! What a fun activity!
Katie ... Ryken's pumpkin hat is ADORABLE!!!!! Great job! I love teh b&w where Ryken has his arm around Sully and is laughing so hard. What a great moment!
Oh Amber ... James is just so BEAUTIFUL! He still favors Nathan a lot - I don't remember Nathan being so fair haired though. He has such a beautiful grin! I don't see how you ever let his feet touch the ground - his pictures make me want to swoop him right up and snuggle. You did an awesome editing job on Nathan's school picture! I wish Logan's school offered a digital option. I think the blue background is much nicer.
I haven't shared in a wihle, so here's a few from me:
It's fall, so you have to know it's soccer time again!
And this sweet girl is a friend from judo class who wanted some senior pics:
We're headed to a park in a few weeks for some shots with her puppy dog.
Okay, GiGi, you have GOT to tell Logan to stop getting so tall. It's not cool Love the processing in that last pic!
Amber - Nice edit!! Awesome that you were able to make it better! And James is getting so darn big! I don't know how you can stand all that cuteness you have in your house
Katie - Nice to see some new stuff! I LOVE that second one of the boys hugging in the field! I hope you're getting settled in to your new house well.
Tracy - That castle project looks awesome! It may not look like the magazine, but I'm sure they had a blast! I LOVE that shot of the kids with the tire rim! Were they making rims for CAT?
Love all the pics guys! I love photos that pick up true eye color so brightly. I think thats the one thing that basic studios and snapshots can NEVER pick up well. My daughter's eyes are what got me interested in photography after a photog friend of mine showed me s simple snapshot she grabbed of my girly.
My pics center around all of the blue eyed kids i've been around recently! My own two kiddos are of course my favorite, but the last two are from shoots last week
GiGi- holy cow he is taller, MUCH taller!
Steph- LOVE #3, however, he looks too old there!
Amber- James has melted my heart! He is a DOLL! Looks sooo happy! Peekaboo is my fave!
Danielle- Are you using a speedlight or is that all natural light? Loving these snaps!
Prima Luce- Love how you make the simplest of things into such great snaps!
One of my faves from a shoot the other day:
