Fall wedding cakes

I adore fall weddings, and I adore cake. And magic occurs when the two are joined! Cake wrecks is a great procrastination website that I visit occasionally. Six out of seven days of the week they feature cakes gone hilariously wrong, but on Sundays they show the best of the best cakes around. I thought their feature on fall wedding cakes was worth sharing!

What can I say? I'm a proud Mama...

Okay, sorry for the picture overload, but I'm so glad I took these spur of the moment photos of my daughter last week. I must say, she's not the easiest subject to photograph. I almost never get eye contact, and when I do, she's either roaring like a dinosaur or smirking. But she was a total ham for this session, even though it only lasted about 15 minutes until the sun was too low to continue!

My girl loves her shoes. I have no idea where she inherited that little trait... ;)

I'm kind of in love with this picture. So dreamy...

Zach turns 9 months old! | Bartlett, IL Children's Photography

How time flies! Last December I was photographing tiny little newborn Zachary, and now he's a big boy; sweet and inquisitive.

Here's a sample of the photos we captured in his grandma's backyard. Oh how I wish to someday have a backyard like this!

I included samples of a few of the many ways I process photos: High contrast black and white, vibrant color, and a modern twist on vintage coloring.
