Playful.  Honest.  Vibrant.

Gotta love yellow Tonka trucks, bright striped sweaters, and amazing light.  Couldn’t have asked for a better morning to photograph this cutie with amazing blue eye in the heart of Eau Claire’s downtown area.

Thanks for stopping by.

It’s that time of year. The air is cooler. Apple orchards are open for picking. The trees are starting to change colors. AND school has started!

My kiddo’s all had an excellent first day of school and thankfully let me take their traditional “first day” photos.

Peyton is in the 4th grade, Hayden 6th, Em a sophomore, and Mallory a FRESHMAN in college!

Whoa!  My house is a little too quiet right now…so I have the 80’s mix turned up to keep me company. I have a back to school blues. I miss my kids.

Did you know we have something amazing in our own backyard?

Yep…we have the little patch of heaven in the form of a sunflower field right down the road.

If you don’t stop to smell the sun flowers you just might miss it. This is our 3rd year visiting Babbettes Seeds of Hope and we’re looking forward to visiting next year.  After all, it’s become of end of summer family tradition. If you’re around for the long weekend I suggest taking the family out and getting lost in a sunflower maze.  Think about it, how many people can say they’ve been to a sunflower maze?

Here’s a few fun family pictures I took with my Canon.

I wanted to get a photo of all my kiddos together but the lighting conditions were not great.  So let me explain what I did:

Looking at the photo below you see the sunflowers are facing away from my kids.  I would’ve LOVED to have my kids turned around so I could’ve had more sunflower faces and yellow petals in my photo, but that would have put the sun directly on my kids faces. So turning them away from the sun was the only way I could capture them without blinding them.  Then to properly expose for them, I asked them to step to the side where the shade was and get close. At that point I knew I’d get happy faces that weren’t blinded by the sun and a good exposure of the tall sun flower stocks so the kids would know what this photo is about.

Camera Settings:  ISO 100/F 7.1/SS 1/200

Question:

If I wanted a good photo of my kids in the field, what time of day would be best to visit Babbetts Sends of Hope?  I’d say early morning or early dinner hours. Then the light won’t be so harsh.

Thanks for stopping by.

One of the downsides about Fall is finding the perfect pumpkin.  I hung out with this sweetie for an hour or so and enjoyed playing with her at Ferguson’s orchard.  I’m happy to report she did find her perfect pumpkin.

It’s hard not to fall in love with her beautiful eyes.

The weather has been amazing for October in Wisconsin and I strongly suggest you take some time with the family to visit your favorite local orchard and create some new memories.

Thanks for stopping by.

Photographing my clients around the many picturesque Eau Claire areas I’m bound to run into someone I know.  I love all the car honks, happy hello’s, and roller-blading photo bombs.

If you see me out and about say HELLO!    xx ~K
