Hello autumn

While Mia was napping, I took the babies for a stroll and found the prettiest place right behind our neighborhood. I turned around, went home, grabbed the camera and strolled back. There's something so valuable to me about this once-a-year backdrop.

Those are simply beautiful! :-D

I love the colors, the backdrop, the sweet girls... Everything.

Now I seriously am wishing you were here to take our portraits!

You should see the blah pictures I'm resorting to for our family Christmas card this year. :-P

I'm afraid I'm just not too ambitious.

Your work is beautiful, Summer. :-)

Great job!!

(I know what you mean about the time of year... It's so magical to me! I love it!)

WOW! that So looks like a fake backdrop. Its THAT good! I wish I was around more trees right now. I absolutely love this time of year. The colder weather(not too cold) and the changing colors......ahhhhhhhhh, so nice.


Have a great day.

blogstalker's right. I thought it was fake till I saw the 2nd photo. WOW.

Those colors are amazing! We pretty much skipped fall. Last week the high was in the low 80s -- this week the high was 47. Bitter cold. Or rather bitter about the cold. My mood is improving because the forecast is for low 70s and it is the long UEA weekend.

This is amazing. It looks like so-perfect-inside-a-studio. I can't believe it! Then again, it probably helps not living in a desert anymore...
Can't wait to see you guys again in a couple of months!

That would be perfect for dressing the girls up as little woodland fairies or something. Wow, gorgeous!

The Koenig Family said...

Marsie Pants said...

By the way, mom still needs a portrait of me. So, please tell the trees to stay that color until I get there in 1 1/2 weeks. I think it would look nice. Though I doubt I will look as cute as Anya (top) and Bree (bottom). You know...if you want us really guessing..you shouldn't name the pictures after the child. haha :)
I love these though! Please tell me you are doing another calendar...because these will be PERFECT for it! You should do a calendar of JUST the girls. Less stress for you, and even more special for the families...and you won't have to make two :) Believe me...we like seeing pictures of the girls more than our own ugly mugs.
And speaking of me coming up...I guess Im just going to rent a car and drive from the airport. So...I will get your address and everything soon so I can mapquest it :) YAY! I can't even tell you how excited I am to come see you guys!!!!
