Fall photos

I have never liked posed shots of the kids, such as school photos with fake backgrounds. Instead we meet with Karen each Fall for some less contrived, more spontaneous and natural shots. We first met Karen when she photographed the kids at daycare and she has always captured their personalities perfectly. We always have a giggle that we are one of the few families in the South who don’t own anything monogrammed or smocked for their children’s photos 🙂

On Saturday we headed about 45 mins out of town to a horse farm where we’ve had photos taken before. It was just the most idyllic Fall day. Clear skies, gorgeous sunshine and crisp air. We had a great time and I can’t wait to share the photos with you soon!

Here are a couple of photos Karen has taken in previous years – I just love them. If you are in the Atlanta area you must book a session with her here!

It’s SNOWING!

Yes Atlanta has come to a standstill – a frozen standstill.  We’re expected to get 1-3″ of snow which is quite something for us.  So as I sit here waiting for the kids to make their way home from school I thought I’d get a quick blog post written as I’ve a feeling I’ll be required to play countless games of Uno and Chess over the next few days.  I’m sure we’ll be housebound tomorrow but thankfully I have wine, cheese, paté and bread so I’ll be alright thanks (taking a well earned break from the Paleo diet!).

I need to be careful out in the snow as I am still shuffling around like a 90 year old on a bad day.  I ran the 15k on Sunday – it was an awesome run and I felt strong all the way round, even managing a quick sprint across the finish line cutting valuable seconds off my time 🙂  I didn’t feel quite as strong after my celebratory Mexican and margarita – an ice pack on the knees was required along with a long nap…Now I’m trying to summon the enthusiasm for the Georgia half in March…we’ll see!

This is an outift I forgot to post before I had my bangs cut – I just found it on my camera so here you go – my favorite red jacket from last year.
