What does fall mean?

It's a great question.  Fall is just about upon us and what does that mean?

1) Pumpkin flavored things.  mmmm I hoard cans of pumpkin so we tend to have some year round but I love pumpkin season.  Not so much coffee but baked goods!  Pumpkin muffins are happening ASAP!

2) Back to school.  Ty started his last year of elementary school.  I'm trying not to think too hard about him being a fifth grader because that makes me old and because I was trouble at his age! Katie is in second grade and declared it "The Year of Katie".  I don't know what that means but I feel like we should be scared.

3)  It is almost hockey season!!  Hockey hockey hockey!  Hurricanes preseason training starts THIS WEEK and Squirrel and I will be trying to go to practices once a week.  He loves it, it makes a great bribe for good behavior and Mommy isn't too sad about having to go!  The season starts October 10 and we will be there! So plenty of hockey pictures will be on the blog here soon.

4) Halloween!  Another fun fall thing I love!  We trick or treat with a mob of kids from the neighborhood and we have so much fun.  This year I think the kids have decided that they will be Batman, Robin and Harley Quinn.  Katie was going to be Batgirl but she wanted to be old school purple batgirl and the costume is more blue than purple.  As this does not meet her "I must have the perfect costume" standards, she went the villain route and chose my favorite!  I don't have many years left before Ty will refuse to dress up with them so I am excited!  There are requests in for me to be Harley too, but we will see what Mommy has time for.   If you want a quick mini of your kids in their halloween costumes let me know and we can set something up. I'm always happy to put together a costume mini or two if anyone wants them!

5) Holiday shoots.  This one might be the most relevant to this actual blog.  I know most of you don't even want to think about Christmas yet but holiday deadlines are November 23 for your shoot and December 14 to place your orders.  Which means it is coming up fast!  That means I only have 8 weekends available between now and the deadline.  These will fill FAST as we get later into the fall season so if you are even thinking about a session for the holidays talk to me soon.  If you wait I may not have the availability you need.  Book your session by October 1st for a $25 session discount and a free print 8x10 or smaller!

We have a new look here on the blog and I am working on all the website updates as well.  I will not let the slideshows defeat me!   Next week I will be doing a post on why I became a special needs friendly studio and exactly what that means for you!

Don't forget to tell your friends about the session deal because we have awesome referral and loyalty discounts!
