I love the Kitners!

They never fail! I always get the best pictures and love being with them! I like to call them "good people!" This was our second time out because of rain and I just loved this beautiful day! I can't wait to finish looking and finding great shots! Thank you guys so much for letting me take your pictures--just a joy.

The eyes are killing me!!

I don't know if I have ever seen eyes quite like this before. I could not stop looking at the color and the eye lashes and the deepness! I loved this family because they could laugh and walk and talk and were so comfortable around each other. I was looking at the pictures on the computer and my daughter was walking by--she stopped turned on her heals and came back to the computer and asked "Who is that?" Oh she was trying to be casual but I could tell. She then asked "does he go to my school?" I sadly had to tell her no to which she responded "dang it!" Just a funny moment of realizing my twelve year old is definitely a teenager.

Did you see the eyes?

What am I going to do when the leaves and all this color is gone. I am sure that I will come up with something.
I loved this shoot and I am looking forward to taking their sons senior pictures! I have a boy and a girl coming up and have some fun ideas churning in my head.

I wish I had some of these myself!

I am the least photogenic person I have ever met. People say that about themselves but it really is true about me! I wish I was because I would have someone take pictures like this of Daniel and I. I am so very grateful for the owner's of this property for letting us take pictures here. I promised them some pictures of their land and here they are---just gorgeous! The days are getting shorter and might light is getting less and less. I hope that it stays warm enough to get the rest of the shoots done!

Some days I worry that I am going to loose my creativity. That one day taking pictures is going to be old hat, but the last few shoots have made me realize that I not only enjoy taking the pictures but getting to know the people that I take pictures of. I look at their faces for so long that I feel like I know them intimately. It is a nice place to be!

New Experiences!

This is the first time that I have ever shot in the rain. It was not supposed to be raining and I was bound and determined that it was not going to get in my way. Ultimately it did and I talked Barb and Kyle into coming out and getting wet! And if I do say so myself I am so glad they did! I love friends who are willing to try something new and these two are my favorite subjects. I did not get many of the kids but that will have to be for a rain free day!

I am still loving the color of this place! I wish that I could bottle it up and keep it like this for a long time. It lasts such a short time that I feel if you blink you miss it!
Today I felt the old excitement to try something new and to really set up a shot the way that I want to see it!

I know its picture overload!

Well it has been busy here at Forever October. Not that I would ever complain but it just seems like I am not the only one whose favorite month is October.
I think this year the trees have a lot more color to them. I am always amazed by the beauty that surrounds me. I had a great time photographing this cute family. I got my work out in but it was well worth it.

I also got to try my hand at babies again. I cannot say that I have that down yet! I am my own worst enemy when it comes to that. I have so many ideas in my head it is hard for me just to relax and see what the baby wants to do. But oh my goodness look at that hair.

This year I cannot wait for Halloween. I am going to really enjoy everything about it. I just hope it is not raining. I have one goal this month and it is to reconnect with people that I have not been very good at keeping in contact with. So watch out world someone might be getting a phone call from me.
