Puppy Love

Today was an absolutely beautiful day to get outside and snap some photos.  We even brought the dog along for some extra fun!  While the pooch was sniffing around every tree on the path, I took the opportunity for some solo snapshots of Ali.  Scroll down for the ones with both of them!

I promise no dogs were harmed during today's photo shoot!

Whether we were looking up or looking down, there was an awesome view today.  The sun was shining, and leaves were falling.  It was warm, but a slight breeze was still rustling the trees in the woods, and the colors of fall are really starting to show up now.  I just cannot express how much I love this time of year!

The beautiful fall colors might not be in full swing yet, but these beautiful girls sure make up for it!  I had so much fun hiking through a nature park with them last weekend for this fun photo shoot!  I'm looking forward to going back with them when more of the leaves are on the ground instead of still in the trees!

Here's a look at some of my favorites from the photo shoot.  A link to the full collection is at the bottom of the page.

By the House in the Woods

I think sometimes I find beauty in the strangest of places.  In little things.  Things people normally wouldn't stop to photograph.  Things that don't really stand out, but should.  A small detail.  Something that makes you stop and think.  Those are my favorite type of photos.  And these photos fall into that category for me.
