This is really the wrong time of year for this since Day of the Dead is actually in October/November but I can’t wait that long to post these. You see this shoot was supposed to take place quite a while ago but due to circumstances beyond our control we had to post pone it. Well we finally got the chance to do it so here are few shots from this awesome shoot.

These are just a select few images from this fun shoot. I will post more later.

Please be patient with me as I try to rework a few things. As of Friday it was just confirmed that my youngest son also has Autism. With that being said, having two young boys with Autism, one starting preschool, and both of them in therapies my time for photography is very limited. On top of all that my husband works six to seven days a week, so as I’m sure you can imagine we have a very busy schedule. I will continue to keep my business going to the best of my ability but please understand that my boys must be my first priority. Going forward I will only be taking a limited number of sessions and more than likely clients will need to book in advance to secure a session with me. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for all of your support and patience as I work through this.

Thanksgiving is one of my favorite times of the year. I love all of the great food and spending quality time with family. It is also truly a great time to reflect on all of those things that you are thankful for. Since the passing of my Mother and Grandmother Thanksgiving has been a bittersweet time for me. I have so many fond memories of Thanksgivings past that were well spent with the both of them and I always miss them both very much. I so wish they could be here to see my children and to be a part of all of our lives. I have been through quite a bit in my life but every time I think of them I am also reminded of how fortunate I have been. I feel blessed to have what time I did with them even if I wish it had been longer. I am very blessed to have my own family now too.

Time is always so fleeting so take this time and a little time every day to think about all the blessings you have in your life. Everyone experiences pain and sadness at one time or another but there is also happiness. Take some time to realize how fortunate you really are. Enjoy your time with your family and make every moment count. Share old traditions with your children and make new ones as well. Life is a blessing and that is something we all have to be thankful for. Enjoy yours and share the joy with those you love.

I wanted to post a family portrait here but I have yet to get a new family portrait done. (Bad photograher!!) Anyway here is a snapshot of my handsome babies.  They don’t sit still very often so it’s hard to even catch a snapshot  but I still adore this one regardless.

This past week was birthday week in our home. Three birthdays within a week of each other, my son’s, my husband’s, and mine. (Of course the guys were on the same day) It was a busy week for us and a lot of fun for us to celebrate our youngest’s first birthday.  Here are a few pictures of the cupcakes and smash cake I made for my little guy’s party.

As promised here is the picture of the potato bags. Just wash off your potatoes, put them in the bag and microwave. Soon you will have perfect baked potatoes!! You can also reheat rolls in these bags as well. My Aunt makes these bags and they are super cute. She sells them for only $6, they are totally worth the investment.

The past few days I’ve had to adjust my routine quite a bit. Usually I spend most of my time working on my photography business. Photography is my passion and I want my business to grow so I spend quite a bit of time working on all kinds of things related to photography. Like I said though, the last few days things have been different. I recently had surgery so I’ve been spending most of my time upstairs away from my boys. I love my little guys so much but at the moment I have to keep my distance a bit as my incisions heal. My guys are little and don’t know any better so when they jump on me, hit or kick me they don’t realize how much  pain they can cause. So to play it safe I’ve been working upstairs for the last few days.

The problem with being upstairs is that my photography work station is down stairs. My calibrated monitor and controlled lighting are all down stairs. With that I decided that it’s best not to work on editing any photos as the moment. Of course there’s the other fact that pain meds make me really woozy. In any case I have taken this opportunity to work on my other business, my Gold Canyon business. My husband brought my laptop, bamboo, and one of my external hard drives up so that I could work on Gold Canyon stuff.

I love Gold Canyon. They are my absolute favorite candles but often times that business falls to the way side as I am usually more concerned with photography. Well I must say that it has been a nice change of pace to work on designing things for my Gold Canyon business for a change.  In these last few days I’ve designed a few marketing materials, updated my facebook fan page, and reconnected with some of my fellow fragrance consultants. I am still very eager to get back to editing soon but I will admit that sometimes it is nice to have a change of pace.

With the beginning of September and all of this recent cool weather I find myself thinking of all my fall favorites. The is my favorite time of year. I love fall weather, hearty soups, pumpkin everything, and of course Halloween too.

Here are a few of my fall favorites:

Pumpkins: I love pumpkin bread, pumpkin pancakes, pumpkins in general. Here is one of my favorites photos of a pumpkin.

Gooseberry Patch Cookbooks: I love Gooseberry Patch any time of year but I am particularly fond of some of their fall recipes. Click this link here to try out one of their recipes.

Gold Canyon Candles: Again these are something I enjoy all year long but their fall fragrances are amazing. If you haven’t tried Gold Canyon Candles yet I urge you to do so. They are the best candles I have ever used and believe me I’ve tried a lot of different candle companies. I love them so much that I even sell them. You can check out my candle page here.

Cozy Blankets: Snuggling up with a blanket and watching movies is always fun.

Christmas in October Craft Show: Cloud Productions puts on an amazing craft how every year in Findlay. I love going there to see all the vendors and their new products. I am particularly fond of the handmade soaps I find there every year. One of my favorite vendors of handmade soap is Nimbus Skin. I don’t know if she’ll be at the craft show this year or not but you should definitely check out her olive oil soap if you get the chance. It does wonders for your skin.

I love cooking. I love how you can mix a few different ingredients together and come up with such wonderful meals. Sometimes even the simplest ingredients blend into amazing new flavors. Cooking and baking are things I’ve enjoyed since I was a kid. So tonight I decided to make one of my favorites, chile con carne.  For those of you that don’t speak Spanish it’s basically pork chunks in a chile sauce served with Mexican rice.

Simmering the pork in the chile sauce makes the pork very tender and the flavors blend well.

The smoky chipotle flavor was amazing. This meal goes perfectly with some flour tortillas. Delicious!

I must admit that I am a hopeless romantic. I adore the feeling of being in love and the idea of finding your soul mate.  I love to see a happy couple and enjoy being able to capture the essence of their love in a portrait.

This weekend I had the privilege of photographing the wedding of one very happy couple. It was a true honor to be a part of their special day. Lynn and Ken are such wonderful people and they are so blessed to have found one another. I am proud to have been able to capture of their love story in photographs that they will cherish for years to come.
