Bodysuits + High Waisted Chambray Pants + Leather Jacket + Booties

I posted a look last week that was beyond comfy, yet still for the warmer temps.

Seattle has since gotten a lot colder, but it’s hopefully going to be back in the 60’s this next week a few times!

The easiest way I know to transition your summer favs into fall is by adding a fun jacket (my favs are denim and leathe!) and booties!

So…I did just that! And meanwhile…there’s Maya art directing haha. 😉

On me…

Leather Jacket- Plein Sud (eBay, similar here), faux leather option here)
Bodysuit- Velvet Torch
Booties- Sam Edelman “Posey Chain Trim Bootie” (eBay, fun ones here & here)
On Maya…
Dress- Hanna Andersson (love this for fall)
Leggings-Hanna Andersson (thrifted, similar here)
Clogs- Hanna Andersson ( similar here)

A lot of the times, I tell Maya she can pick what we do.
Usually, she wants me to copy her.
Usually, we do something weird haha. 😉
I just wanted to post this, because it looks like I actually have boobies here!
I don’t… 🙂
Must remember what bra I was wearing haha.

Family Pictures 2016

As a photographer, you’d think I’d put a ton of time and effort into our family pictures every year.  Truth be told.  I’m SO freaking busy taking everyone elses pictures, that I am contstantly amazed and thankful that we even TAKE pictures!  Oh, and it’s getting even harder as the boys get older.  With all of our schedules, and the weather, it really is a miracle that these ever happen…

SO glad that they do though!!

I’ve been dying to shoot in “good light”, but it’s so hard in the fall.  Maya takes her nap between 3-6, so it’s dark when she wakes up.  We usually go for a long walk with my parents in the morning or Maya has preschool twice a week, so morning shoots are usually out.  This morning, my parents were out of town, and it was a gorgeous fall morning!  So, we put off the morning walk and went to the park!  No time for showers though, but hey…I can only fit in so many things haha.
