October is my favorite month of the year. Not only is it my birthday month (and my little monkey's), but it brings back so many fond memories of Halloween's past. My twin Great-Aunt's Teresa and Virginia were Halloween babies and we always celebrated with them after going trick-or -treating. We knew to save our candy because we were going to get birthday cake that was usually loaded with butter-cream icing! All of this made me absolutely love the month of October because between the pumpkins, the fun and the birthdays it was always my favorite time of the year.
This year we made our fourth annual trek to our favorite Pumpkin Patch, Single Palm Pumpkins. Sadly, this will be our last visit to the patch. The owners have decided that with the drought here in California that they will do something else with the land. We made it a family occasion and my sister and brother-in-law brought their two littles and my cousin brought her girls. Except for my little guy's meltdown near the end of our visit, we had a good time.
I am a couple weeks behind with my project 52. Pregnancy and motherhood just limits my time lately to get anything done. Priorities are to worry about the kiddos, hubby and house first and business later. However, it doesn't mean I stop taking pictures! I just haven't had a moment to sit and blog about them. I am going to attempt to catch up because life is just getting busier and busier by the day!
This was from a week ago. I came out of the back of the house and my little one was having a snack... and sharing it with his favorite pooch. The picture is dark but it was evening and the I was just trying to make sure to get the moment. These two are like peas and carrots and I love that my son is growing up with the love of his dogs.
I love capturing moments of you with our family. This last weekend we traveled south to Los Angeles to celebrate your big brother's birthday. You played and visited with everyone and we had a great day.
It's not the clearest picture, but it is so you. Momma had a photo session at the park and you and Daddy came along. Afterwards as you ran up to me I noticed you were filthy! You had gotten too close to the pond and fallen in. You were done and ready to leave.
Playing with your cousins and having such a good time! It's impossible to get all of you to stop and pose for me, but most times I like the candid shots even more. My greatest hope is that you and your cousins grow up as close as I did with mine. That you can share stories, and laughter and tons of great memories together.
We got you this train set for Christmas and it has taken until now for you to show any interest in it. You can sit all day long watching it go round and round...
We went out to lunch over the weekend and all of us had fries. You decided that they should all be yours and started piling them in your basket. There was no way you were going to eat them all... but you were sure going to try!
This week we took our boy to the Fresno Chaffee Zoo (our local zoo). He had lots of fun running around and for the most part... not paying ANY attention to the animals!
Mom and Dad took you to the beach last week. You were so excited as we drove up that you couldn't wait to get out of the car. The minute we got out you were pulling me towards the water with you. It was cold, but you didn't care. You wouldn't even wait to change into your swim trunks! So here you are taking on the Pacific and thinking nothing of it. It was a good day.
Hi, I'm Melissa. I am a wife, mother, step-mother, Gigi (step-grandma) and a photographer. I started out as the family member always asked to bring my camera along and it has turned into my life dream. I just love being able to capture moments for others that they can always cherish.This is my little corner to share my sessions, projects, and a little piece of our daily life. Thanks for stopping by!
