Leave Me Alone......


It's that time of year. Leaves falling everywhere and we barely have a decent size tree in our yard!
At least they're pretty. 

Falling leaves hide the path so quietly.

Feet Up!


Some days, this is all you need. That and you have been so busy processing photos you forgot to take one!

I thought about a screen shot of WS Game 1 (Go Tribe!) but thought better of it.

Round Hill Park


Another photo exploration trip for Senior portraits.  It was Round Hill Park, just outside of Elizabeth, PA with KO Senior Lauren McMillen.  Round Hill Park was a special place when she was a child and it was wonderful to get to use this beautiful park and working farm as a back drop for her photos.

While we were taking a shot near the chicken coop, all of the fowls came out to voice their opinions and of course I had to grab a few shots and Lauren had to talk with them all...LOL

This colorful fellow was my favorite.

The rooster may crow but the hen's deliver the goods!

Everybody Loves a Parade!


My favorite parade of the year!  One of 4 parades the KO Golden Eagle Marching Band performs in during the school year.  Just a short 20 minute march around Castle Shannon but the kids and community love it.  Monster Mash and Thriller got the crowd all ready for Trick or Treating!

When witches go riding
And black cats are seen.
The moon laughs and whispers,
'Tis near Halloween!

One For Every Season!


I had the pleasure of photographing Keystone Oaks Senior Patrick Morrow today.  I wasn't sure that any portraits were going to happen this morning with all the rain in the last 36 hours but Mother Nature cleared things up for me in just enough time to complete the sessions.

Pat is a tri-athlete at KO and I am sure by the photo you can tell what those sports are.  We wanted to showcase all three in one shot and I am pretty happy with the way this came out.  I try not to overdue selective coloring but some shots just scream for it.

Here's to a Senior year fill with fun and making great memories!

Three Hours I Will Never Get Back!!


This was the result of three wasted hours online with Verizon. If they had not just gotten my bill down almost $100, I would have thrown them out the window. 

Oh, and a tech will be out on 10/31.....UGH

Gobble, Gobble


When we first moved here, I was amazed at how the deer and turkey just strolled around our neighborhood. We live just a few miles from downtown Pittsburgh.  Daniel used to try to chase them when they came into our yard. 

This scene is very normal any day of the week. If there weren't so much work to clean one, they could be Thanksgiving dinner!!

Just 33 days till my favorite dinner day!!
