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.

Party-peopllllle! Yeah-Kati G-in full effect!  Yes…I’m a fan of Tag Team. WHOOMP-there it is!

Maybe you know this…maybe you don’t?  I love to plan parties and decorate. Do I have the space…ummmm….not really. But I’m up for the small space challenge. (Que arm-pit sweat.) This year I’m hosting Emily’s homecoming party and I’m in full creative let’s go wild and decorate mode.  I’ve been scouring Pintrest every quiet moment I get (any mom knows that’s code for bathroom break), making lists like a mad woman, and throwing ideas at Emily left and right only to have her suggest something completely different so then I’ll turn to Mallory for the ultimate decision making. WORD!

This morning I decided to walk down memory lane, so come along with me.  Let’s rewind to February 2014. Mallory was 14, a freshman in high school, and excited to attend Winter Carnival. She gathered a small group of friends and with the help of my girlfriends we created a beautiful adored intimate dinner party before sending them off to the dance.

Thanks for walking down memory lane with me.

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
