"On Hallowe'en the thing you must do
Is pretend that nothin can frighten you
And if somethin' scares you and you want to run
Just let on like it's Hallowe'en fun."
– Author Unknown

If anyone can figure out how to drag out Halloween, it is my girls. Awhile back you may remember a post about Pumpkin Picking. Later that evening as we were leaving my parent's house, the girls decided they wanted to 'trick or treat' at Oma and Opa's house. Since we won't make it out there for Halloween night, we thought it was a great idea. They went up the steps in their adorable costumes and when my Mom opened the door, filled their little pumpkin buckets with candy. Then they would dump it back and do it all over again. I grew up in this house and although it has changed since my trick or treating days, this was a super cute memory to make for me, the girls and my parents.

Happy Halloween everyone!

"What we see depends mainly on what we look for. " – John Lubbock

One beautiful, sunny afternoon I was pushing my daughter on the swing we have tied to a big tree in our backyard. I normally watch her but that day I noticed the ground, and saw this perfect shadow of her. I ran to get my camera and was happy to have it turn out the way I saw it.

"Fill your paper with the breathings of your heart. " – William Wordsworth

These photos just 'happened' one afternoon when my oldest daughter climbed into my bed on a gloomy afternoon with a found notebook and pen. She started writing and writing, pouring out all the stories she had inside her. I live for these moments and am grateful to be able to capture them to remember for always.

October 7,2013 Pumpkin Picking – Winnipeg Lifestyle Photography

Last Friday the girls and I visited (with their Oma) a place we go every year to buy our pumpkins, Schwabe Pumpkins on Henderson Highway. I could buy them at the grocery store, or let the kids dress up and play in decorated haybales instead. This seems WAY more fun.

"Life loves to be taken by the lapel and told: 'I'm with you kid' " – Maya Angelou

This is the quote I chose for my week 5 Life in Loud photo. The image was plucked from a mini session I did last weekend when we visited a local farm and it describes the entire day perfectly. The girls adventured through a big corn maze, petted animals, pretended to drive old cars, ran among haybales and took a ride on the little 'train'.
I enjoyed the freedom of following them around capturing their joy and discoveries.
