Happy Halloween!!!

Oh gosh, I’m so sorry!! I am so behind in blog posts…typical holiday season madness around here. I will get back to the sneak peeks and featured sessions once I get caught up on all of the outstanding sessions still waiting for holiday delivery of their portraits….in the mean time I thought I might be able to hold you over with a few more pictures of my kids getting ready for Halloween and the trick or treat candy coma soon to follow! Ha-ha!! Feel free to send in photos of your own children to us and we’ll be sure to share them in a future blog post! I just adore seeing all the kids in their costumes enjoying the magic and mystery of Halloween. Maybe it’s the artistic side of me that so enjoys the opportunity to be free spirited, letting your creativity sour and your heart sing – just being free to be YOU – well, that ALWAYS makes me smile!!

So, while you patiently wait for your proofs, sneak peeks and featured sessions here are some photos of my children preparing for the upcoming holiday….

Pumpkin carving….


Nick kinda looks like he’s waiting for something to jump out and bite him eh? haha Yeah, can’t say I blame him, they are kinda slimy! heehee But the shot of my oldest helping my youngest carve her pumpkin – PRICELESS. <sigh>


Okay, now some fun photos of my guys all decked out and ready to beg for candy…. :D Olivia has graduated this year…a mere princess will no longer do. Oh no. She is now the QUEEN. hahaha



Looking at these photos I’m not sure if I should be worried or not, I mean she is truly beautiful and I don’t think that’s just mommy eyes talking!! Still, on the other hand, her big brother does have a certain fascination with automatic weapons that will surely scare away most would-be suitors. So in the end I’m not sure yet which scares me more…the would-be suitors for Olivia or the military minded Nick…



Ah, there’s my guy. I know, he’s going to be TEN soon so sweet looks for Mommy are kind of out of fashion but I just adore that grin!! A big thank you to the U.S.M.C. for Nick’s authentic desert storm uniform provided by the amazing marines at Camp Lejeune, NC. You guys were awesome!!


Good morning! I hope everyone had a fantastically creepy Halloween! I thought I’d pop back in to share one more Halloween capture with you all. Trevor (my oldest) had the honor of being our treat-passer-outer this year. Our house was the spooky hit of the community! Spooky sound effects playing on the outdoor speakers, fog billowing from the front entry, creepy spiders, unearthed bones and even a psychedelic laser light show playing on the garage door. We had a blast seeing our little scene come to life or would that be death? In any case, we knew we did a pretty good job when our neighbors kept asking if they could take photos in front of our house with Trevor.  Ha-ha!

    That is exactly what I love about your photography; I look at the photo of your middle son with the pumpkin innards and I laugh. I look at the photo of your little one with your oldest and my heart melts. I look at the photos of your daughter and I gasp at her beauty. Then I see the photo of your oldest all creepy for the holiday and I realize, once again, just how amazing you are at telling the story with your photos. You really do have a gift Terrilyn!
