Autumn’s Spider Lilies

Yesterday Autumn and I took a little mother daughter trip to go see the spider lilies in bloom and take her yearly photo in them. I love the spider lilies, they remind me that fall is rolling in and we are about to celebrate the birth of my baby girl.

I ordered a bunch of bulbs this year so I can plan them closer to home for next year. Autumn loves the spider lilies and calls them hers, because she knows they come near her birthday and we should has always had them in her life.

Thanks Jenn Kilpatrick for the maternity picture. :)

Southern Oregon Family Magazine asked me to photograph Naiya for the cover of the August/September issue which I was so excited about. Naiya is a really fun kid with a lot of personality and as you can see, just absolutely beautiful! Not to mention her whole family is all around great to be around, which makes a big bonus on a shoot. I will share the cover when it hits the stands, but for now here are some that didn’t make the cut, but that I loved. :)

My Cool Dude

Today I took Josiah to the skate park for the first time to use his scooter. There were several other little boys (some small but he was the youngest still) there on their scooters too and the big boys were really good about watching out for them. He did great for his first time!
