I confess that I am in love with The Outlander series. In my reading of the series over the past few months (I'm in the middle of Drums of Autumn right now), I have become ravenous in my research and understanding of ALL things to do with Scotland and our Scottish heritage. I have learned SO much about my blood and bones through Ms. Gabaldon's admirable story-telling that I am brought to tears with PRIDE just thinking about my ancestral homeland.

It's become a family tradition to take photos of our boys at the local pumpkin patch each year for Halloween. Nothing says "fall" to me like a huge pile o' pumpkins!
When I was growing up, my parents used to take us to the annual Pumpkin Festival in Morton, Illinois - the "Pumpkin Capital of the World". They see hundreds of thousands of pumpkins through that town every year, and they claim that up to 85% of the world's canned pumpkins come from Morton's Libby's cannery.
That's a lot of pumpkins, huh??
We had the pleasure of meeting and photographing Mr. and Mrs. Veach's daughter ("A") for our Portraits With Santa event last year. "A's" were among our favorites of the day, so we were very excited when her mom contacted us this fall for family portraits! For this session, the Veach's wanted an urban, distinctively Austin feel, so we headed down to the South Congress/South First area.
This little angel paid us a visit for a short session with her parents yesterday. She looked so adorable in her red dress and earrings! The big smile was courtesy of mom, who was over my left shoulder doing her best to make this little model laugh.
