Just in time... {Maternity-Delray Beach, FL}

I finally have the opportunity to post some gorgeous photos of, then, mommy to be, Courtney, and her husband Todd!  We did their maternity shoot at Morikami Gardens on November 6th and a few short days later, Landon arrived!  Thank goodness we booked her appointment when we did or else we may have been doing a newborn shoot instead!  Thanks again to the glowing parents for being so awesome to work with and congrats on your tiny little boy!

FALL FOLIAGE {Blue Ridge Mountains}

I was fortunate enough to take a quick road trip up north to run a race and witness the beautiful fall leaves changing!  I traveled to many quaint places and thoroughly enjoyed my little "photographic field trip"!  Below are some of my favorite pics from each stop along the way, and of course, a "family portrait" with my favorite girl who, despite the temps in the 30's, had an amazing time sniffing around outside!

McCaysville, GA & Copperhill, TN

 The cabin: Copperhill, TN

My boots, JD hat and my Grampy's flannel!

Taking the Jeep up there was fun...even got to use 4WD a few times!

TrackRock Stables: Blairsville, GA
Enjoyed a 2 hour trail ride with the friendly "folks" at TrackRock Stables!  Have always loved horses and being outside in the fresh mountain air was an added bonus!

Still a John Deere girl after all these years!

Cherokee National Forest: Cleveland, TN



 So many leaves....

Murphy, NC
I ran a race in the small town of Murphy on Saturday.  It is a very cute little place and I liked the vintage signs posted on the side of the "No Name Ice Cream Parlor".  I was especially fond of the Phillips 66 sign I encountered on the way to the start line! 

Sleepy Hollow
A very unique and interesting place located near Blairsville, GA.  This "enchanted forest" is the entrance to a store that sells handcrafted whimsical fairy houses!  It caught my eye from the road and I'm glad I stopped in and snapped a few photos.

Las Olas Tattoo Company {Ft. Lauderdale, Florida}

Having always been intrigued by the art of tattooing, I have also always had the desire to take photos inside of a tattoo parlor.  I finally got my chance this weekend at Las Olas Tattoo Company, located on Las Olas Blvd just west of Sushi Rock.  
My friend decided to get a new tattoo and since her husband knows the owner, Shamus, I was granted permission to capture some amazing images.  Las Olas Tattoo Company is one of four tattoo parlors owned by Shamus.  (His other stores are located in New York, as well as Vermont.)  He is a very friendly and professional man and his staff is equally as wonderful.  Check them out if you are interested in any body art or piercings!

 Love all the different colors of ink!
