Family Fall Picture



It has been such a busy week! I don't usually work five days a week, but this past week someone was on vacation. I don't know how women keep up with everything when they work full-time.

I also did some senior portraits for a friend on Saturday. The park was beautiful, and the pictures turned out well. We stopped by the same park on the way to church tonight so I could get a few pictures of my own family. This is my husband and children! They were standing there waiting for me to figure out how to use the timer on the camera for a family picture. I wasn't really taking pictures yet, but I loved this one. It was my favorite of the day!

I was very disappointed to see frost on the ground this morning, when I checked the news last night I didn't see my county listed in the warning. I still have so much to do in the garden and time is getting away quickly. It'll be another busy week for me but I hope to find the time to collect more seeds and take some cuttings for propagation.

Thank you all for continuing to leave your wonderful comments. They definitely bring cheer and joy to my day.

No wonder you liked this picture Robin. You have such a beautiful family and the setting reflects equally.

What a beautiful family you have, and I agree, the best photos are often those caught without them being aware. Just lovely Robin!

Patricia said...

What a handsome family you have. The colors are gorgeous.

We have also been expereiencing glorious fall weather, but the weather man spoke of that terrible "s" word for this week.

Thanks for sharing your wonderful pictures.

What a sweet picture! And I love the fall setting. No frost for us yet, but know it will be soon. I still have much to do in the gardens. Let's hope we can make time to get it done.

What a beautiful family shot. The informal ones are always best, aren't they? Such lovely autumn tones.
Our fall colors are almost all gone already, but they sure were spectacular while they lasted.
I know what you mean about trying to get things done when you're working everyday. There's never enough hours in the day!

I'm with you, Robin! I love the casual, not-staged portraits of family and your family is so handsome. The lighting is glorious! Thank you for sharing with us all, Robin.

That's a nice photo Robin and a good looking family you have. Were you nervous doing the senior portraits? I did a few of those this past summer and I always felt a little pressure to get those "perfect" shots they would love. I'm sure you did a good job.

Patsi said...

You've got an award !
Yes another one of those awards. :)

Just come by and pick it up.
If not,that's ok.

All my life I have dreamed of living among the beauties of nature...not rocks and sand...green, flower, etc. I love visiting your blog...feels like home. Maybe I was suppose to born in the Garden of Eden...hehe!

Touched by this family photo, I see you are blessed, dear Robin. In spite of what life has in store (for all of us), you remain focused on the riches of life. For this, we are thankful.
