With the radiant autumn sun streaming through my den window, illuminating the brilliant fall colors of fall, I find it very difficult to not stroll through the trees, camera in hand capturing the artistry of the Creator.

Perfection or lack thereof can keep me from the little things, like actually getting in the photo with my children. Last week I set aside the lack of perfection of myself, handing the camera over to another and actually being in some photos, so that my children will have a memory of us playing in the yard, and snuggling and laughing early mornings in the den. Those little things that will someday be a treasured memory.
edited to add: I took these photos and wrote this post before photographer Jen Thompson passed last week. I'm not too familiar with Jenn but noticed the tribute on Clickin Moms to her and how she encouraged moms to get in the photos with their family. I was impressed with how God laid this on my heart even before I knew of her losing her battle with cancer.

September was a busy month both in life and photographic opportunities and finally provided me with an opportunity to capture a silhouette. I've wanted to try this for some time, but finding a treeless, and flat location has proved difficult. A couple of weeks ago I happened to be with my brother and his daughter at a local airport as the sun was setting. The open runway provide the perfect flat open area I needed. I'm looking forward to trying some more silhouettes at this newly discovered location for taking them.
