halloween to the election & all the things in between

let's just look at pretty pictures & pretend everything is ok.  yeah?  are you ok?

i'm alright.  trying to just keep going through the motions & find the time to do it all.  work, kids, husband, dog, repeat.  somewhere in there i find time to shower & take creative photos.  i've been trying to post on instagram more & that brings a whole weird level of self-criticism with it, too.  it's hard not to get caught up in likes & followers & the feeds of everyone else who's doing it better than you.

what was the world even like before social media?  i mean, if you wore a cute outfit & had perfect beach waves did anyone even know about it?  it has at least inspired me to get out of my yoga pants & wash my hair at least twice this week.  so it's good for something!

the boys had a blast representing the dark side this halloween.  it was declared "best halloween ever in the galaxy" & i'd have to agree.  every year it gets more & more fun.  fall has been wet but we've found little pockets of sunshine & dry weather which allowed us to get out & hike a bit here & there.

brooks is almost a year & has settled into our house pretty well.  he's insane, don't get me wrong, but we're getting there.  he's chilling out.  and the boys constantly tell him they will love him forever & ever no matter what he'll always be our puppy so i guess he's staying.

work has been great.  so many amazing families this fall & brides booking for next year.  i love what i do & am totally feeling a surge of excitement for what next year will bring as i ramp it up a bit for 2017.  this year was a bit of a regrouping & rebuilding year after the move & a primary focus on portland clients.  next year?  bring it.  it's gonna be a good one.

here are a few pictures from the last couple weeks.  i'm gonna try to take my camera out more & more & work on shooting on these darker days even when it feels too dark & dreary out.  buck it up buttercup.

october so far

this october in one word: RAIN.  omg so much rain.  it's been dark & dreary, rainy & stormy.  but we've had little breaks here & there & we've done with them what we can.  i traveled to utah for a family session, my mom came & visited for a week so she could watch the boys one night while sam & i acted like adults in seattle for a work party, & we did other obligatory october things.  pumpkin patch, trips to target for halloween decor (and random star wars swag) & playing in the leaves.  parker lost his third tooth, we added a neon tetra to our fish tank, & brooks & i spent many hours at dog parks.

we love october but this one has been wet.  here's to hoping november brings that crisp fall air!

the rest of september // in photos

september brought the end of summer, our last few sunny days (before the weeks of rain we've had in october), coughs, colds, strep throat (for me!) & pink eye (the boys!).  but it wasn't all bad.  sam & i got a weekend date with a fancy dinner & a kids free hike, i flew to utah for work & sam got to spend a few days in las vegas with some friends.  we got into the swing of things with school & brooks & i got in a few trail runs.

here are some pics.
