Mud and Chocolate

Last weekend I was a proud participant, and the unofficial/official photographer, of the first annual MUD AND CHOCOLATE run. Put on by the fabulous Nina...who is not only one of my best friends, but an amazing running coach! Nina's love of Chocolate and running, couldn't have come together in a better fashion. The plan, run a 4.5mi or 13.1 mi trail run, in the mud...and at the end...indulge in chocolate...of all kinds. Come on, who can say no to that?! Brilliant!Her wonderful husband, Jon, is such a huge supporter and helped out with all the fun details of the day's events.NRG running and Everyday Athlete...proud sponsors of the event.Before pictures, of all the cute gators...all clean.People came in all sorts of fun gear, ready for the wet weather, and getting muddy.And muddy they were!This gal was such a huge fan, she even had her own t-shirt designed for the event. Love it!Of course, I have to agree with the shirt. I did the race myself, but I knew what was waiting for me at the finish line. All sorts of chocolate!The best piece of chocolate...was the gold chocolate medal that everyone received. Such fun!
Thanks to all the sponsors, fun participants and girls who let me pace off of you! What a fun event! Can't wait for next year's mud and chocolate run!

On my trip to Atlanta, I was able to photograph some fun sessions....and this one came about through the magical world of facebook. A girl that I had gone to highschool with mentioned she loved my photography and if I was in town, would love to hire me. Having just got married (and having lots of photos already) she suggested to her husband to do a session with his siblings, as a present for his family. What a great gift! And what fun it was! Here are some of the cute presents they will be able to share with their family this year. Here's Mia...the cutest little barker! ;)
Thanks to you all for allowing me to photograph you family, and to be able to provide such a fun and memorable gift to your friends and family. Can't wait to share the rest!

Cute lil' punkins

Remember sweet baby Clara and her parents, Dean and Judy... here she is at 8 months old, visiting her first pumpkin patch...and she an adorable little punkin.

We braved the MUD, and more mud...and even be able to enjoy a wonderful fall day amongst pumpkins, cornfields, and to get some fun family photos. Nothing like a crisp fall day with some apple cider, kettle corn, and picking out that perfect pumpkin.
Little Clara Bean sitting in the radio wagon...looking all cute.

But seriously, could she be any cuter than in her Halloween costume...Princess Lea?

Clara's first pumpkin patch trip was very 'serious'...

but she managed to have fun, and find some smiles...

and the smiles turned to giggles! Yeah!

Love this sweet moment of Judy and Clara, checking out the corn fields.

Thanks to Judy, Dean and Clara for allowing me the opportunity to join you at the pumpkin patch. It was a great fall afternoon and as always, great hanging out with you!

Sweet gift to remember

My Aunt's good friend, Lisa, and her husband Tim are leaving the neighborhood and a house they've called home...for so many years. It's tough to move after building so many memories, strong friendships and sense of community. But that community...and those friends decided to come together and give them a sweet gift to remember...a family photo session. With their 3 kids, and the addition of Bradey (the golden)... here are some of my favorites. I love how this picture shows all 3 personalities. Brady, the cutest puppy!
Thank you all again for allowing me to come into your home and photograph your beautiful family. I wish you all the best with your move and establishing new friends and memories in B'ham!

Baby Cole

Mark and Jennette...excited and proud to be parents, welcomed a beautiful and healthy baby boy into the world at the beginning of October. Here they are before...
And here they are happy family...welcoming their new son, Cole.

He is such a precious little guy...and so cute and teenie tiny.

Mom and baby...always a special bond.
No doubt this smile is just pure joy...with her little one snuggling up so sweetly.Dad, too, is all smiles when looking at his son...especially when making funny scrunchy faces ;).
Family time...

Congratulations again, Mark and Jennette! I'm so excited for the both of you and wish you all the happiness in the adventures ahead! And thank you for allowing me to capture Cole's first days. He's a Keeper! ;)
