It's the Most Beautiful Time of the Year

It's no secret that Fall is universally beloved, and if you are a sane person, it's your favorite season of the year.  Although I revile all things pumpkin spice, I still welcome the cool, crisp weather with wide open arms.  This year, the Fall season upped the ante with numerous celestial events, including a super blood moon lunar eclipse, a meteor shower and easy viewing of FIVE different planets.

The show in the sky combined with the usual autumnal change of colors happening in the trees, I'm starting to think Mother Nature is just showing off. 

Lucky for me, this beauty is easy to take advantage of to snap some seasonal family photos.  I love my job.

Brand Spankin' New

Newborn babies are squishy and cute and sleepy and sweet and REALLY hard to take care of.  I think most new moms find themselves sitting with their new baby at some point thinking "Wow. This is super hard.  Why didn't anyone tell me it would be this hard?  THEY ALL LIED!"

If you're half as fortunate as I am,  someone, or many someones DID tell you how hard it would be. Unfortunately, the natural smugness that comes with growing a human inside of your body doesn't allow you to absorb this information.  Pregnancy smugness allows you to believe it will somehow be different and easier for you.  It won't be.  But if you're reading this and pregnant, enjoy your delusion while it lasts.

For all their helplessness and impossible to understand cries, newborns are extraordinary.  It is a special time in the life of a new family and it makes me all warm and fuzzy inside to be welcomed into the home of a stranger to capture the magic.

There is nothing like the glow of a new mom.
