Halloween is getting closer and considering all of us here in Indiana woke up to some crazy cold temps this week, I can totally believe it. But honestly, October is supposed to only be a bit chilly but with gorgeous sun, not gross, rainy and grey like it has been. Boo! (pun intended.) So my…

apple orchard smiles

Hereโ€™s a little peek in my afternoon with Holly, Nate and Evan at the orchard last week. Look at this sweet little punkin! I love this photo. Itโ€™s like snips and snails meets a fairy tale. (Did that make any sense? You know, with his little cap on backwards and the sweet curiosity of a…

  • HollySeptember 27, 2009 - 3:44 am

    Woooooo hooo Betsy! You got these up sooo quick. Thank you! The curiosity was killing the cat over here. I can’t stop looking at them–especially Evan in his wagon. How adorable! I can’t wait to see more! ๐Ÿ™‚

    And that’s the HIMYM episode where the glass shatters, right? I LOVE that episode! Anytime Marshall sings is a good one — I think I might have to rewatch it now thanks to you! Have you gotten to the Intervention episode yet? That’s another classic! Oooh – and have you gotten to the one where Barney runs the marathon?

    If this family wasn’t related to me, I’d want them to be!! They are just so adorable and fun. Ok, so I’m partial. I’m Holly’s mom! But you captured the true essence of this beautiful family. I can’t wait to see the rest of the photos! ๐Ÿ™‚

    On an unrelated note… I shot my first senior session today. I just have to say the biggest thank you to YOU. Of all the photogs I’ve found in the senior genre YOU are #1 on my list. Before my session this AM I was feeling a wee bit of nerves so I hopped over here to your blog for a little Betsy-inspiration and it was just what I needed! ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks for sharing your sessions on the blog and for having such an amazing eye. It’s always inspiring to come here.
