Autumn has arrived!

I so enjoy doing portrait sessions during this beautiful time of year!  Trisha wore an outfit that went with the scenery which made for some gorgeous portraits. Here are a few of my favorites from the session from Friday night.  Enjoy!

Our babies are gone...

Boy, it sure was tough to see our babies go off to the sale barn!  We sure got attached to them since we got them last Spring.  We were able to feed a couple of the steers from our hands.  These close-up photos were taken with my "fun" 20mm lens.  Aren't they the cutest steers you've ever seen?

Yo-yo Buddies

My grandson, Fabian, turned 14 years old on September 13.  He invited his friend and yo-yo buddy, Mikey, to his party on Saturday.  I did a quick photo session of them playing their yo-yos.  Here are all the shots taken of them playing their yo-yos. Enjoy!

Alyssia and her sister Gabriella

I had this portrait that I have been wanting to do for the longest... a little girl under a huge tree where the tree frames the portrait.  I got my opportunity with baby Alyssia and her sister Gabriella as they have this beautiful huge tree in their yard. The weather was perfect, Alyssia was sleeping, and it only took a lollipop to get Gabriella to cooperate so well during the session.  Here are my favorites from their session.  Enjoy!

More Alaskan Favorites

Here are some more of my favorite photos from Alaska.  This mountain range photo was taken on our first train ride from Fairbanks to Anchorage.
Some photos look better in black and white and I thought this photo fit that category...
I saw this seal before anyone else on the ship since I was using my 100-400mm lens.  It was a gorgeous first morning of our cruise.
The lighting made for some good reflection photos for this glacier.
Below is an animated .gif of a glacier caving
I never get tired of photographing seagulls.  Here's one looking for a treat! :)
Here's two more.  This photo reminds me of two bombers coming in to bomb their target! :)
I stayed out on the ship till it got dark to get this photo.
Just before dark the sky had a pink hue.  It was beautiful!!!
This was taken after arriving in Canada before taking the train ride back to Alaska.  These rock collections have a meaning for the natives but I forgot what it was! :)
 This is my favorite shot while in the rain forest in Juneau, Alaska.
 Here's another version of the fireweed in front of the Mendenhall Glacier,
 I don't know what kind of fish these were but they were jumping out of the water.
God gave us beautiful weather on our last day cruising to Vancouver, Canada.
