Just one to share from a recent family holiday photo session.

Last month, my family went hiking to explore some new areas. We found tadpoles, steep hills to climb, cool rocks to collect, and poison oak. Aside from the latter, it was heaven for my two boys. However, we probably won’t be going back since we didn’t manage to steer clear of the poison oak. Well, at least the tasmanian devil-like five year old didn’t. Ooops! But the rest of us escaped without any reactions…even my husband who is super sensitive to it (almost a magnet for the stuff). And I have some lovely pictures to remember it all. In fact, I think that’s poison oak in the background of the picture on the right.

This post is long overdue since baby P has already arrived! I just finished designing an album for them, so I thought it would be a good time to share some of their images.

Mom contacted me a while ago to schedule a maternity session. She said she never did one with her other two boys, and since this would probably be the last baby in the house, she wanted to capture some images of her pregnancy. The P family now has photos to document the family during Mom’s pregnancy, and a gorgeous album coming their way soon.

I had so much fun meeting with the V family over the weekend. Their daughter is so adorable and she is celebrating a birthday very soon. She also loves Cars, and since I have two boys who love Cars, we had a lot to chat about.

Here are a few pictures taken just before Halloween. Whether a superhero or a villain, I just love seeing little kids in their costumes. I’m also really surprised how quickly kids figure out trick or treating. Last year my youngest, just turning two, wasn’t too sure about knocking on a stranger’s door. This year, at age three, he was was up in the front of the pack yelling “trick or treat!!”

Though having two boys with lots of crazy energy, their mega candy stash scares me. So as I did last year, I offered them $5 (maybe $10 last year, but no one remembers, so it’s $5 this year) for their loot. They picked out five pieces of candy they wanted to keep and handed over the rest. Then I take them on a shopping spree ($5 can buy 5 hot wheels you know). They can combine their candy money or buy separately, but they are really happy to do this. Now what to do with their loot? Well after picking through my favorites and giving myself some extra energy for editing, I send it their school. They have a cool buy back program. A dentist in the area pays by the pound for the candy and donates the money to the school. So we get rid of our candy and the school gets some extra cash, a win-win!

And finally my freaked out pilot. He must have left water boiling on the stove.
