So let me first say how very sorry I am that I completely dropped the ball last week. It was two days after the fact before I even realized I had forgotten to post! How bad is that?! These past couple of weeks have been completely mad and I'm living in a bit of a fog these days. Work has taken on a new life and I don't know up from down. I apologize. I really feel sad that I have neglected this blog. It's a bit of a reflection of my life in general, I'm afraid. I desperately want to get through the mountain of sessions, weddings and edits so that I can enjoy some family time and a bit of holiday cheer.

And I am also a day late and a dollar (or more) short for this week, I know. I was up until the wee hours last night trying to get through a wedding gallery and had planned to post before bed. When I wandered off to bed, zombified, early this morning, I realized I had neglected once again to edit and post my personal photos. But, I simply couldn't peel myself off of the mattress until 8 AM. So here we are. I have only a few images from our Thanksgiving dinner to share. In the next week or two things should slow down briefly before the final Christmas rush.

We did manage to decorate our tree but that's about as far as we've gotten in our festiveness. Come to think of it, I'm pretty sure I still have a Halloween flag outside the front door. {hangs had in shame}. I hope you are enjoying the holiday season! What's new on your end?

Good gracious where is November going?! I have not purchased a single gift, prepared for Christmas cards, planned a single meal, or even managed to take down all of the Halloween decor. I can't begin to think about how I will get it all done. I need it to be September again.

On that note, I also have very little to show in the way of an effort to photograph my own life and family. I really am feeling burned out and pressed for time with work, like constantly living in a compression chamber, and I can hardly think of picking up my camera for personal reasons. When I actually think about this, it makes me very sad because my children seem to be maturing at the speed of light. I just can't seem to keep up with it all.

Anyway, I scraped together a few random images for this post. I saw the moon coming up as I was heading home after client session and I stopped for a moment to try to capture the scene. I played with some long exposures and tried getting light trails from the passing cars. I didn't have a tripod so they are a bit shaky, and the highlights on the moon are terrible, but it was fun to just play for a minute. Despite their poor technical merits, I still rather like the effect. Other randomness includes a simple fall leaf snap from walking in the neighborhood (with a bit of a melancholy feel to the edit - seemed appropriate for my mood), our pup Bella who will turn 8 in a couple of weeks, and my silly gal - my constant companion when I'm not off shooting sessions.

Thank you for visiting! Link up your posts below and have a wonderful weekend!

Yikes, it's Friday again and I'm SO not ready for this weekend! Just finished 5 galleries, I have 3 more sessions to edit, and 5 to shoot this weekend. And I've been running like a headless chicken all week.

I have but one lonely photo to share and it's kind of a miracle that I even made that happen, ha ha. Sorry to post and run, but it's almost tomorrow already and there is laundry to fold, session planning to do and hopefully a bit of sleep before I get up to do it all again.

Hopefully your week was more sane than mine. What have you been up to?

Happy weekend friends! This week was packed full of client work, a whirlwind of Halloweening and then more work. Other than a few phone photos I haven't had a chance to import & edit, this week's only personal pics were taken while waiting for a client who was late to our session. So it's a random mash up of things I photographed to kill some time. I hope your week was more exciting than my own. Tell me, what have you been up to?

Happy Friday friends! I can hardly believe Halloween is upon us. This month has been a blur. I am enjoying the cooler temps and changing leaves though. And I am looking forward to Trick-or-Treating with the kiddos after a busy weekend.

Last week my wonderful amazing mama threw a Halloween Party for the kids. We played games for prizes, danced, told jokes and riddles, and ate tons of yummy food. It was a blast. My pics this week are from the party. (Thanks Mom!)

Do you celebrate Halloween?

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:
