Leaves.. Lots of them..

My cousin came up to Osky with his family and we did pictures today. What a beautiful day for pictures! And the leaves at Lake Keomah are absolutely gorgeous! I didn't think they could get prettier than a few weeks ago, but I guess they did.

A family shot of them all..

aaah, adorable!

Aren't they cute?

Such a doll.

What a beautiful family. Thanks for making the trek to Oskaloosa. It was good to see you again!

Kevin is a senior at Chariton High School. Kevin and his mom and dad came down and we hit some great places for pictures. We scheduled pictures after school so we'd get the best light, but boy did it get cold fast. Kevin was a trooper though and we got some great stuff! We hit Lake Keomah for the pretty fall color and we also hit some alleys uptown. I love all the textures and colors we found.

Love me some grainy black and whites.

Thanks guys for coming up here for pictures. It was great to see you again ! :)

Couch in a Field Extravaganza II

Couch in a Field this year was interesting.. So we had 93 degree temps on Saturday, which gave me a sunburn during my first session the sun was so strong.. And the poor people that showed up in sweaters--they were troopers though! Sunday wasn't quite so warm, but in the high 80's. Didn't feel like fall at all, but it looked like it which was all we needed!

The Webb family came all the way from Ankeny. Mom's a photographer and we are going to swap services this fall so I can get some pictures of my kids!

Jennifer, Glen, and Cookie came.. I work with Jennifer. She is awesome! And Cookie even smiled for this picture :)

Felicia, Jessy, and the kids came...

Brent, Tiffanie, and Ronin came...

My neighbors Kelli, Doug, Douglas, Jason, Stef, and Grace came... They haven't had a family picture in 25 years.

The DeGeest family came.. Here's one of their girls. Adorable!

April brought her family; Nathan, Brayden, and Jackson.

Thanks for coming out guys, I really appreciate it. It was so good to see everyone. I can't wait until the next bunch of Couch sessions planned in a few weeks.!!!

So....... I promised pictures of the Couch in a Field event and here they are!!

Couch in a Field Extravaganza II

I've been really really bad about blogging lately, but I just wanted to tell everyone that I am super crazy stoked about this year's Couch in a Field Extravaganza. It will be tons of fun and I can't wait to use my super cool red vintage looking couches this weeekend. These couches have taken up residence on my deck aka Margarita Lounge and they are super comfy and uber cool looking. This event is several months in the making and I think we found the perfect location to do pictures. The trees and fall foliage are beautiful too, making it the perfect storm for this great event.!

This year we have 7 families participating!

I promise promise promise, I will post pictures of the event!
