I know most of my readers are in the US and in the middle of summer, but it is Winter here, COLD winter. My last month's photos? are Autumn photos. I am going to save some of them for later, but here are some of my favourites this month:
Lucas loooves the moon, he is always looking for it.
Just after we got back from our trip to Brazil I noticed that Autumn was at its peak and I was going to miss out. So I grabbed Mateus one day after school and let him play with the leaves while I photographed to my heart's content (I swear the trees look like they were on fire... the photos don't do Autumn justice in here!!).
awww my sun flare (and my cheeky boys LOL)!
check Mateus' fingers on this one LOL isn't he too young for that?
Now some home shots (since we have been at home so often with this weather!).
Lucas has been VERY attached to Mac, they are together non stop. Mac has become an inside dog since we came back from Brazil. It is too cold outside and I don't to keep her outside if she is allowed to come in all the time. If she is coming in so she should stay in so she is clean! She has been VERY good up until now, she is very clever and rarely has an "accident" inside but she started to get interested in the kids toys now that it has been a while and she is started to get bored with her own toys. She chewed on a couple already. It is good to teach the kids not to leave their toys in the floor though...
(ugh, look at the carpet next to Lucas, meals area + carpet + children = not a good combo)
My boys at home sick and just so tired:
and lastly, the state of the living room that week we spent home:
that was like a minute after I had organized everything and tried to settle the boys down with a movie... it does get worse than that if you put toys in the equation, but that is supposed to be the TV room which is clean and organized at all times (quite different from the family room).
Talking about being home sick... we are sick again... just me and Lucas this time, but still, it sucks a bit. Hoping to get out of that cycle... I want to go see the snow. I have a feeling the kids will LOVE it.
Sorry for the long and image heavy post, it just built up and up and I still have loads more photos I wanted to share. I did a photoshoot last week that I REALLY want to share, it was with a friend who is pregnant, and I like the results of this first attempt at a maternity shot. But I wanted to share my photos before so, next time :)
*** Edit to add: from the sun flare photo down, all photos edited with Jinky Art's Sweet Photoshop Actions. The first 4 photos just had a little boost of light, shade and color in Lightroom.
