My friend Liz wanted some cool tile photos for her office, so I obliged! I think they make a pretty series of 8x10s.

pumpkins and gourds and hay bales, oh my.

Pumpkins as far as the eye could see...
We went to the pumpkin patch today. Well, the kids and I met some friends from our college days...And taking photos is much more difficult when corralling a 3 1/2 year old and being the source of balance for a walking-fairly-well-on-smooth-ground-but-not-so-much-on-the-bumpy-dried-mud thirteen-month-old. (that was a lot of dashes)

Our friends - expecting their second "pumpkin" within the next few weeks.

Alex's baby shower

Abby over at Paper&Cake is amazing...I love all their parties! I threw Alex a baby shower using their "Under the Sea" collection and got so many compliments!

I kept it pretty simple since the shower was going to be fairly small. Food: pasta salad, hummus & pita bread, veggies and dip, and cupcakes. I filled the favor baskets with peppermint patties, lip balm, and tealight candles. We played one game - I put about 15 assorted baby related items on a tray, let the ladies examine it for about a minute, then they had to write down all the items they remembered after I took the tray away. We also talked the afternoon away, as a group of women who have known each other for years and years are able to do!

alex and bill: baby in the belly.

Alex is a beautiful mom-to-be, and also one of my oldest friends. It was so fun to photograph her and Bill as they await the arrival of their little boy at the end of October!
rock star baby!
it's a boy! (though alex says she has dreams that when baby comes out it ends up being a girl...)
one with a vintage action - i like the effect.
similar silhouettes!
i'm (hopefully, provided i make it to long beach on time) photographing baby boy's birth too - and i can't wait!
