» my journey in photography and daily life

Brown County was alive with fall colors this past weekend.  I am so glad we made a trip down, even though it was super busy, these pictures just don’t do the park justice.  I don’t know if I am just paying more attention to it this year, but I have never experienced a fall quite as colorful and beautiful as this year.

If you are curious photography wise which lens I used on the close up leaf photos, I used my 50mm 1.4 lens.  I was shoot with an F-stop of 2-3.5 in order to achieve the blurred background look and highlight specific leaves.:)

These sweet kids were troopers on the coldest and windiest of all fall days.  Spencer is the happiest 6 month old you ever did see.  His big sister Emery is an explorer and a wonderful big sister to her little brother.  Even despite the cold temps, we had a great session! 2014-10-15_00012014-10-15_00022014-10-15_00032014-10-15_00042014-10-15_00052014-10-15_00062014-10-15_00072014-10-15_00082014-10-15_00092014-10-15_00102014-10-15_00112014-10-15_00122014-10-15_00132014-10-15_00142014-10-16_0001

2014-10-14_00012014-10-14_0002I saw the idea for a fall garland on pinterest and fell in love with it.  I used her pattern to create the Happy Fall garland from old book pages.  I purchased felt balls on ebay and used needle and bakers twine to string them together to make the garland.  The whole thing was very quick, easy, and inexpensive.  A perfect addition to our entry way.

Original pinterest idea found here.

Before and after photos of cutting ten inches off my hair.  I have been thinking about doing this since the wedding and finally did.  I am glad I had ten inches so it could be donated.
