SENIOR SESSION: Doug Class of 2018

Doug was my last Senior Guy Session for this season. 

I really enjoy these sessions, partly because I loved teaching the boys in my classrooms (back in the day) and because I don't have the pleasure of having sons... it's fun to hang out with the guys once in awhile. 

The icing on the cake was when I discovered that he is a Chelsea fan (British Soccer League) Oh my...I guarantee my husband would welcome him to our home with open arms! 

Doug is kind, thoughtful and easy going...which made our time together most enjoyable! 

He'll probably hate me for this, but scroll to the end to see a side by side of whom he reminded me...it totally gives away my age (or perhaps the fact that I'm even older but had younger siblings)...This happens every once in awhile...I see someone and they remind me of some doppleganger movie star...unfortunately, it's usually from the late 80s, early 90s...yikes...not the best comparison for the class of 2018...hopefully he will forgive me...

Congrats Doug!  I hope you have a fabulous Senior year!

FAMILY SESSION: Tree Farm Bonanza

November snuck up on us...

and then sort of smacked us in the face with cold weather, rain and whipping wind!

Back in August & September when I sent out the availability for photo sessions, the time slots were scooped up within about 4 hours...it was crazy and wonderful all at the same time...

The difficulty is scheduling with my own family of 5 in mind (two being teenagers with a boatload of activity and homework of which I am sometimes needed to participate)  along with other families that have the same.  Therefore combining schedules and trying to come up with a potential date/time and THEN crossing your fingers for the weather is definitely risky!

My cousins own a tree farm around the block from my home.  Cousin Dave is a pilot and the farm was actually used for his runway for years (and even years before him as well) You can read the history of the land HERE...when our cousins purchased the land, they planted christmas trees to line it....Thus Fly Away Farm!  

Typically in November, if it isn't too muddy, I attempt to do last minute sessions (weather permitting) at the farm...and just a handful of families were fortunate enough to have the chance! 

It may have been a bit chilly, but these boys powered through...I won't tell you what made them laugh so hard in some of these images but it may have rhymed with "cart"

ahhhh boys!!! I had such fun with them all! Especially since their family make up is the same as my brothers with 4 boys, the youngest being twins! 

I'll be back to the farm the first weekend in December to chop down our Christmas tree again this year...I've been to this farm since even before my husband and I were married...it's a tradition in his family that we've carried on into our married life too!

FAMILY SESSION: THUNDER...and lightning and LETS DO THIS

We had been rained out twice...

Fall schedules are ridiculously hectic...especially with tween and teenagers....

and the forecast was showing the big green monster on the radar heading our way...

I'm not sure I've ever worked quite so quickly, nor RUN to different locations as much as I did during their session...

I have taken their family pics for years and I LOVE the different types of sessions we've had...sometimes urban, sometimes nature, sometimes a walk in the rocks & river...it's always different...

So, we mixed it up again this year, with some "Towny" pics...

the only "glitch" was the thunder and lightning and the ever darkening sky...

oh my heavens...(pun intended!)

I feel like I need to insert THIS song here...

The light was nearly gone (although hopefully you can't tell too much as THIS is the reason for photoshop...when you have situations that are uncontrollable and a schedule that is super tight...you do whatever you can to make it happen!) #photoshoptotherescue #doesitlooksunny

Believe it or not, my family actually ran into their family in FLORIDA of all places this year...randomly wandering around Disney and smacked right into them...

another reason I love this profession...the meeting of people, the joy of interaction, the cultivating of relationship, the happiness of knowing :) 

This family is lovely and I'm honored to be in their circle of belonging ;) 

............................

The countdown has begun and my galleries are nearly complete!!!  

Who is ready for some "crafting" this December???
