Wishing you and yours a Happy Thanksgiving! May your day be blessed and your heart filled with gratitude!
I really wanted to play along with today’s 10 on 10 circle – I miss the creativity all these women have in our little photog-community! Sharing our posts and finding inspiration in their work is a monthly treat – I love curling up with a cup of coffee and enjoying everyone’s posts! And even though I’m photographing tons these days, it’s mostly been client family photo sessions. I absolutely love those sessions. Especially the sessions with little kids, because I truly never know what I’m going to get! Ha!
So even though I’m behind the lens a lot these days, I haven’t had much time to just wander our beautiful San Diego areas and photograph creatively. So as I looked out my window, contemplating what I could post for our November 10 on 10, I spotted a beautiful tree in one of our neighbor’s yards. And that’s when I decided I would challenge myself to take 30 minutes and photograph fall foliage around our neighborhood!
Well, the tree I spotted? Turns out it’s in their backyard. I thought it was on the side, where I could casually grab a few shots, but no such luck. So, I decided to hop in the car and head to church just a few minutes away. I haven’t photographed any family sessions there lately, but there are a few beautiful trees towards the back of the property that actually change colors with the seasons! I love San Diego, trust me I do, but we have so much green. Yes, I said so much green – and not a lot of trees with leaves that become that amazing fiery red or burnt orange or golden yellow, like so many of our eastern states do. But those trees at the back of our church? They do!
So I headed over there and had myself a little fun. I challenged myself with these three limitations:
So off I went and had myself some time to just breathe, shoot, and enjoy the beauty of the season! Have you done that lately?! I highly recommend it!
Well, I hope you enjoyed taking a little breather and enjoying the fall foliage with me! Consider yourself lucky that I didn’t focus my camera on my current fall obsession: everything and anything pumpkin flavored!
Be sure to head on over to the lovely Kristina Rust to see how her fall season is coming along!

Welcome to another Make It Monday! I can’t believe we’re rolling into fall already! My girls start school this week and I’m excited for my favorite season of the year to begin! It’s been unbearably warm at times here in San Diego, but getting to play with these gorgeous fall dies from Top Dog Dies has me ready for the cool days of autumn!
I love using what I have and creating something totally unique. That’s probably why I like using a couple different die sets on most of my projects! On this fun “Fall in Love” banner, I’m using two super adorable new dies: Make a Banner Die Set (pennants) and Pocket Page Fall Die Set (leaves and squirrel). Look at the super cute details!
I hope you’re inspired to create something with these dies! The quality is amazing – they cut like butter!
