Wow! Northern California, well at least Sonoma County has been hit with some pretty magnificent weather this last week. Between the gorgeous fall colors, soft directional light, and did I mention awesome weather, I've been out personal shooting as much as any mama can. Starting the week off by playing hooky from work, the family set out to the coast for some much needed r&r and giggle factory therapy. Having fun with shadow play, here's a first look at my rapidly growing pregnant belly. While packing up we discovered Milo loved reaching up for the blanket blowing in the wind (which made for some great pics). All in all, it was a great start to a week full of activity, hard work, and some good shooting time.
