i am thankful for.... - my two children; they bring pure joy to my life. their smiles and laughter make my heart sing. - my husband; for his constant support and patience - my family; their unconditional love and support gives me strength - my brother who is the strongest person that i know - my friends who support me and look after me - my home; i am so grateful for a space to come home to every day have a wonderful thanksgiving holiday weekend! "May gratitude continue to take over your heart -- crowding out worry, fear, jealousy, envy, hate and the litany of other useless emotions." [pumpkin pie image from]

i had a lovely photo session with the w. family. we met at ardenwood which was perfect since the extended family lives on both sides of the bay. if you live in the bay area and have never been to ardenwood, it is a beautiful park!
they are four boys and another little boy on the way! all of the cousins were running around and having fun together. everyone in this family is so sweet!
here are a few of my favorites...enjoy!

i really wasn't kidding when i said it was super busy around here! every weekend has been full of fun family portrait sessions. i can't complain - i get to meet people in beautiful parks all over the bay area and take pictures of cute kids!
meet the f. family - mom, dad and tristan met me at gamble gardens and we walked all around the grounds and admired the beautiful flowers and plants. tristan enjoyed checking out all of the various fountains on the property.
tristan is a very sweet little girl and we ended the session with a talk about fairies. so fun!

we headed out of town for a mini-vacation on sunday. the change of scenery was wonderful and it was nice to spend some time away from the computer. we spent one night in calistoga and the vineyards are absolutely stunning right now. i couldn't resist taking a few pictures even though i was supposed to be on vacation. how can you ignore these colors?
one of the highlights of going to calistoga is going in the hot pool at night. going out for a yummy dinner and then soaking in the pool is such a treat. here is a picture of sam after getting out of the pool.
this is my dream driveway which is right outside of st. helena. i have no idea what is at the end of the road but the driveway is enough for me!
