So yep, this year, we are the ninja turtles and April O'Neal... except nobody seems to even remember April... oh well. These costumes were actually alot more time and work then I really thought they would be, but I think they turned out cute.... and I think we are going to switch over Gabe and Emma from the masks to beanies and eye masks like Wallace and Daniel - Ive heard those masks are very uncomfortable.
Back before I got my hair re-done... its actually red now... and check out my cool boots! And you cant see them, but they all have the cutest turtle shells on too... note to self: take a picture!
And for the second year in a row, weve been featured on Offbeat Mama's Halloween Montage which I personally think is the coolest! (thank offbeat mama)
Today has not been a good day, but then its a Monday, so I guess it was to be expected... but tonight... tonight is going to be grand... I cannot wait!!!!
As always... if you need anything, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org - you have no idea how much I love to hear from you!
ps: I bet Daniel would be tickled (or really, really embarrassed) about a few comments on his awesome green pants!
On a photography note: I was not planning on doing mini-sessions this year as its been so crazy and busy, but Ive had a few people ask about them....
So Im willing to do them if I can get at least 5 committed families for a Saturday, or at least 10 committed families to do a whole weekend...
possible dates: Nov 19-20, Nov 26-27, Dec 3-4
A mini-session is: 30 minutes on location, full editing, and 5-10 images on a cd (usually available in less than a week). Cost is $50.
If you are interested, let me know ASAP so I can get a count, and also what weekend you prefer... please email me at email@example.com - thanks!

Last night, Daniel and I went to a Halloween/costume party... our family costumes dont really work without the kids, so we threw together these last minute. Im a flapper and Daniel is a mob boss - the suit is actually pinstriped (and my husband is super hot!) - he really needed a fedora, but oh well. It was fun and got us out of the hose for a few hours, so Im just super grateful for that. (and yes, just for the record, I am that tiny... Daniel is only 5'10")On a semi-related note: fishnets really hurt your feet in heels...
On another not-really-related note: I really just wanted to dress up in my punk clothes as my costume, but Daniel doesnt own any... can someone please convince him these would be a worthwhile investment so I can be comfortable next time. (what? you didnt know Im a total punk on the weekends? fun fact)
Ok, come back on Monday so you can see some pictures of our actual family costume.... and have a great weekend!

I love this picture of Daniel pumping gas in his costume... The whole family... Daniel did actually have a hook... and how good of a job did I do with his jacket? Yeah! Emma's face kills me.There's the hook. Hope you are enjoying these... :)

This is from 2004... Gabe was just a few months old and I found the cutest gorilla costume, so I decided he could be King Kong and I would be Faye Raye.... I think we were pretty cute... and check out that blonde hair!It was extremely hot that year, so he could only wear the gorilla suit in air conditioned buildings, so we had this little Tigger outfit for him when we were outside... my husband makes a pretty cute biker too... :) (oh my goodnes, how little is Gabe!)These are from 2005, and Gabe was Pooh... oh my goodness, he was the most adorable child... look at that face!Daniel and I got in on the action too... :) This isnt really from Halloween, but thought it was funny... this is Emma as a baby in 2006... any guesses as to who Im making her? (think 80's music)2006... Gabe went as a dr.... looks like a pretty good time for a cookie break to me... :)I also sent him to school/daycare like this on the actual day of halloween... see Ive been trying to turn him into a punk all his life... :)
More to come all week... stay tuned!
And like I said.. today has been pretty rough, so any thoughts/prayers/well wishes you want to send our way today, we will gladly, gladly take them...
as always, if you need to get in touch, email is always the best way... email@example.com

Looks life fall is about to hit in full swing this week... I dont know if Im excited or not. Ive been really loving this t-shirt weather. But I am looking forward to boots and blankets and hot chocolate.... and those lovely, color-changing leaves that are falling. And of course, it means some gorgeous fall sessions are coming up - excitement!
I may, just may, have a few spots left open for the year... dont wait, I have been booking up quick, quick, quick... email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Oh, and as a quick aside... I will only be booking 20 weddings next year, and already have 2 on the books... so if you are thinking about it, let me know. I would love to meet with you and see if I would be a good match for your wedding!
