It’s that time of year! We load up the kids and drive an hour to the Flower Mound Pumpkin Patch, always arriving just as golden hour sets in, leaving me only enough time for beautifully lit shots if everyone could just HUSTLE AND SMILE AND COME ON JUST LOOK AT ME for 15 minutes.
#LeynasSmirk comes everywhere with her now.
You know what I appreciate about Lowell? He gets my vision. As for the rest of them…
FYI, it’s really hard to adjust white balance and tweak skin tones when you’re surrounded by an orange house of orange pumpkins. Black and white to the rescue!
Okay, that? Up there? New favorite of her. It’s like a smiley smirk. Like the smile and the smirk are fighting and the smile is winning.
Honestly, I was going to list my Canon 85 1.8 lens for sale. I so rarely use it. But I took it with me instead of my trusty Sigma 35 1.4 this time, and DANG, I will now keep it forever. I fully understand it’s dreamy capabilities after this.
Um guys, my 7 year old is enormous and this is not okay. Also he now only wears sports clothes. NO he will not wear a pumpkin shirt to the pumpkin patch. AS IF.
And then there are these two who have literally never taken a bad picture, together or apart, ever in their lives. Jerks.
Yo, check out those light-up Transformers shoes Lowell is rocking. We are SOOOO far past caring about dressing our toddlers like tiny grown men in pricey brown loafers.
That pile of hay look familiar? I shot this there a couple years ago, back when Kendall let me dress him in seasonally festive clothing… or at least in pants with zippers and buttons.
Remember when she had almost no hair for like 2 years?
Remember when this guy didn’t look 12??
(Sidenote: Those Under Armour shirts are 100% worth the money. They can not be destroyed. Plus? Kendall is STILL wearing the some of the first ones we got him back when he was a chubby toddler. Now they stretch vertically instead of horizontally.)
