Aside from the 85 degree heat wave this week, it's finally starting to feel a bit like fall around here. The leaves are changing, we did have a spell of cooler weather (until recently) and pumpkin, pumpkin everything is everywhere you turn.

We took a mid-week family trek out to a local farm for some good old-fashioned fun. The kids took a hayride out to the pumpkin patch to choose a fruit from the vine. We met a pig named Carl, got lost in the corn maze, sampled some peanut brittle and had a cotton-pickin' good time! The following is a mix of iPhone pics and DSLR shots from our family fun day on Darden Farm:

It's Fridaaaay! Okay, for me that's really more like Monday, but I'm sure most of you are happy the weekend is here. I miss the days when I had weekends free. A couple more months of madness and then I'll enjoy a free weekend and savor every moment.

So my kids didn't want to play any of my reindeer games this week. Instead, I went out alone and played with a little freelensing among the autumn leaves. We really don't have that many colorful leaves here yet, but a little golden light and Photoshop and I can pretend we do. I was eaten alive by mosquitos (nasty suckers) in the process, but after a bath in Caladryl I'm feeling much better.

How was your week?

Happy Friday friends! I hope you are well and safe. There is some crazy weather happening here on the east coast. Hoping everyone steers clear of the danger. It looks like we will only get rain and wind but nothing on the scale of hurricane force. Praying for my friends and family down south this weekend!

This week was pretty much a blur of post wedding exhaustion, marathon editing and homeschooling. Little Miss asked me to go outside and snap a few photos, so I obliged of course, but is wasn't long before the mosquitos chased us away. Other than that I've been mostly chained to my desk in between loads of laundry. Not a very exciting existence lately I'm afraid. Hopefully, once I get over this huge mountain of editing, I will have time for a little more creative shooting. Maybe next week...

What have you been up to?

Oh yes, and I forgot to post this last week. My girl filled in on her friends team for one soccer game. She has never played and went to a couple of practices with her friend. The coach let her scrimmage with them and then asked if she could fill in during a game when they were short players. She played an age group above her own and did fantastic! She got right in there and went for it, no hesitation. We were so proud of her! They didn't win the game but that was a big win in my book. :)

Happy Friday all! Can you believe it's October already? Holy cow. I noticed the leaves turning this week and it hit me that fall is really here, which means the holidays are just around the corner. I'm SO not ready! I do love cooler temps and fall breezes though. Now if the 80 bazillion mosquitos (left behind from the monsoon) would vacate, that would be fantastic. Then I might actually enjoy the outdoors.

This week's pics are pups! These two are a constant source of entertainment and tomfoolery. Always full of energy and a bit naughty, but only because they think they are attention-starved. They often try to climb in my lap while I'm working at my desk, or come lay their heads on my arm, which makes it impossible to get much done. They each out-weigh me, so you can imagine how trying to work around them would be an uphill battle! I love them dearly though. They are gentle giants in every way.

I really didn't pick up the camera much otherwise. It's so gray and buggy out lately that I'm not feeling very inspired. How about you? Have you been inspired lately?

Happy Friday friends! We are finally stepping off of the ark here. It's been a very wet and wild week with several days of monsoon-like rain and flooding. Fortunately, we were prepared with sandbags so we avoided any major catastrophes. They actually closed the local school because of rain and flooding, which has never happened before in my 40+ years of living here.

After last Friday's sunrise elopement, followed by a family beach session, I was pretty much toast. The rest of the weekend was a blur of work, puppy care (our dane boy was neutered and had a gastropexy) and not much sleep. Then the monsoon ensued and this week was a washout. I'm really ready for a vacation from life for a bit. I could sleep for about 3 weeks, I think.

Today I'm sharing a few iPhone snaps from my early morning venture (I am not an early bird by any means, but it was pretty awesome to see the sunrise at the beach), along with shots of our puppy boy and then the kids exploring the lake in our back yard.

How was your week?

Happy Friday to you! I will admit from the get go that this is a pathetic post. I scoured my shots for something share-worthy and came up empty handed this week. I have had many client sessions, been lots of places, survived week 2 of homeschooling and still have nothing much to show for it. Hundreds of images were taken, but all for clients.

I have just one sunset shot that is really a throw away test shot, but I figured something besides my sad apologies had to take up space here. The week has been so hectic and stressful. The weekend promises only more of the same with several sessions, a sick girlie at home, a pup recovering from surgery and so much editing piling up it boggles my mind. So there you have it. I admit defeat this go 'round. I hope your week was more fruitful.

Please link up your posts and have a super weekend!
