5 Moments- October 2018

Each month, I look back in reflection on my favorite moments, captures or days. This, in a nutshell, is what I love about photography; documenting the little things. It also provides a glimpse into the past to provoke emotions, share memories and tell stories.


If you’ve been following me for awhile, you may already know that October is a crazy month. Not only is it the peak of fall photo season, it’s also baseball playoffs, halloween and BIRTHDAYS. Both girls celebrate their special day in the same month and there is also a party that goes along with it. It makes for utter chaos but it is also a ton of fun. We try to spend the same amount of time with each girl and let them pick out their activities and this year was no different. It was wonderful to celebrate in a new state, with new friends and to be environment that made us feel as welcome as if we had been here all along.

2. Baseball Playoffs

As mentioned above, baseball playoffs are a big deal in our house.. only if the Cubs are in it. For as long as my husband can remember, the Cubs have rarely been a part of October baseball. So as they have been getting progressively better (Hello, 2016 World Series Champs) October has become that much more fun. So we go all in. Day games, night games, doesn’t matter. It makes for very long and exciting days. And this year, we had our little man with us to help cheer them on.

3. First Snow!

Yes, you read that right. Snow. In October. If you are used to this, then you can move onto the next item on the list. But being a California Native who spent time in the midwest, October snow is not a normal in my world. I did not dislike it, I actually found it really nice (because I knew it wouldn’t stay long). It was just a surprise and a very nice Colorado Welcome.

4. Halloween

A much loved and widely celebrated holiday, it continues to grow in our home and was a big hit this year. I know someday, probably all too soon, my kids will feel “too cool” or will want to go out on their own so for now, we embrace it and milk every second of it that we can. Our kids, I mean- Rey and Rainbow Unicorn lasted about 45 minutes trick or treating while baby brother (old man Ty) stayed bundled in the stroller. We walked with new friends and laughed as the kids exclaimed about how much fun they were having. Oh, these are the days. ❤️

5. So Much LOVE!

I have met so many new faces, shared fun stories and captured so many memories for clients old and new this season. I am beyond blessed and grateful that I get to do what I love every day and I couldn’t do it without you guys. LOOK AT ALL OF THIS LOVE! Thank you.
