During the holidays blogging seems to be completely non-exsistant unfortunately. However every since I started to really enjoy doing this "in-home tree session" for my son, I started offering them to a couple families at the end of the year. Im sure you have seen this idea everywhere ... and some may get irritated thinking its "their" original idea, i kinda just go with it. The holidays is fun and magical. If I can share my talent with a few friends during this time, that's priceless.

Every year I photograph this awesome family. It's the least I can do after this amazing mom (pictured) literally is a savior during my very merry minis every year. Yes, folks I have one amazing assistant. These images were actually taken in OCTOBER .... yeah I know crazy. lol. With a jam packed month in November I had to squeeze in these when I could. We had so much fun at the tree farm with cookies, milk, and feathers. Take a peek ....

My blog has been neglected since Very Merry Minis started ... however I am proud to say 20 very happy families are photographed (and most have their orders already). YAY !!! I wanted to post this family before more VERY MERRY Madness started. I have so many holly jolly blogs to post ... however I'm taking a day to remember FALL and the "Thankfulness" of it all. I am so thankful for not only this family but the many I have met and seen many times this year. PKP is a small business ... a girl with a camera ... a girl with crazy dreams. If it wasnt for these amazing people believing in my "DREAM" I wouldnt be able to do what I love. It's taken a long time to find my creative path in the this crazy world and I am so glad making others smile is it. Truly ... Thank You. Now that we are past the mush .... this awesome family has been to PKP many times ... so happy I was able to give her one of my favorite galleries yet .... take a peek.

I haven't shared a fun project in awhile since my Pebbles Design Team term ended. It's hard to get crafty for your self when having such amazing things happen with PKP. Looking back I never shared this project !!! Here are some of my favorite "Thankful" Cards that I made last November. Still one of my absolute favorites. 

What are you making for Thanksgiving this year?

Last night we raced home from Karate barely beating sunset. I wanted to get the kiddos Halloween Costume photographed before Trick or Treat Day because I know he would not be as focused on pictures when the time arrives .... (I am really running behind this year). lol. The location I originally planned on was occupied, however I think it was fate because I found this amazing spot on the side of the road ... We had 15 min. before complete darkness .. as I was shooting two deer were eating  10 feet away from us. It was a pretty speedy but Magical Fall evening. Last year the kiddo was a "astronaut" (take a peek HERE) this year he said he wanted to be the man who builds the space shuttles. My "Flight & Space Boy". Funny enough his costume we already had (this is stuff he wears on a reg. baises). lol. Explore Wonders my amazing son.

Take a peek .....

I had such fun with this new family. I always love meeting new clients. This family was smiling from the first moment I started the session. We had so much fun. Such a great way to start off a fun fall session. 

Take a peek at the W Family !!!

After seeing many "Circus" Inspired Sessions from some very talented photographers ... I was inspired. I wanted to do something like this. A large scale set up, with more than one child. I didnt do this for my business or a client, I did this for me. I started photography for me and I wanted to continue to grow as an artist for "Me". If I don't love what I am doing ... why continue to do it. About six months ago I brought this idea up to my husband. That man is truly my cheering coach. He never doubts anything I set my mind too and he started building. I saw an amazing circus wagon I had to have for this session and he made it happen. He built it and I painted it. Then I told my assistant and another friend my grand plans. As the months got closer amazing things just came into place; props were ready, wardrobe, the works !!! The day of, I had four amazing kids to do this session with (including my own).  Looking back I know there's a couple things I would change, however we dont grow if we dont critique ourselves. It's an amazing feeling seeing something finished after months and months of planning. 

Welcome to the Circus .....
