Halloween Photo Shoot

I decided to go into work on my day off, my Anniversary...
I did some face paintings and I set up a photo booth for my fellow employees and their kids. Some of them were a bit overly distracted by the candy! :)
I'm only posting this one pic. A bunch of people who had dressed up were already gone by the time we got to take a group photo

Pumpkin Carving Party

I've wanted to have a Halloween party for years  now. I didn't want a bunch of drinking and I just don't have the resources to have a vintage Halloween party like I'd like to. I decided to do a pumpkin carving party instead!
I set up a venison chili bar with baked potatoes, hot dogs, chips, deserts, hot apple cider and a pumpkin beer bowl! I bought a huge pumpkin and carved out one side, the other side was flat. We filled it with ice and dropped in some bottles Sam Adams October fest. I love that one, I hate beet in general.. but I can actually drink Sam Adams!

I had 12 good friends and coworkers (the husbands didn't carve anything...) over and we all carved pumpkins.
These are the results!

Senior Pictures

One of the gals I work with hired me to do her sons Senior pics! I'm grateful for the opportunity.
I don't like to force my subjects and let them be as natural as possible. He's a good looking kid and straight face rather than a forced smile, is rather refreshing!
One set of photos is taken with a shotgun that belonged to a friend of his who recently passed away. He wanted to memorialize his buddy this way and I think it turned out great!

Foggy Wedding

I was able to photograph another wedding here recently. This was fastest wedding I'd ever been to! I swear it was all done in less than 5 min.
I'm not entirely happy with this session. Between the fog and poor lighting, I just couldn't seem to get the quality photos I normally get. :(
I even made the boutonnieres for the groom and his son.
