I wanted to FINALLY get back here and post all my Halloween pics.  I really miss blogging and I need to make time for it!!  The first few photos are of each of my kids (minus Truitt:(. . . still working on his pic) in their Halloween costumes.  I always try to take photos of them in their costumes prior to Halloween since no one ever wants to stand still long enough for photos when it’s time to trick-or-treat.  I’m SO glad I planned ahead this year because Trick-or-treating weather was miserable- wind and rain.  Of course we braved the elements anyway and had a great time slopping through the puddles.  The rest of the pics are from the pumpkin farm and pumpkin carving- some of my all-time favorite family traditions.  Hope to be posting more regularly . . . thanks to all of you who keep checking in:).

Alicia - I have to say, your photos are always so crisp and beautiful! You have such an eye!! What lens did you use at the pumpkin patch? What settings? I’m trying to move off of “auto” with my dslr and struggle with settings. My kids are 4 and 1 and are always moving, so it is so hard to get crisp photos. Also, the photo of your daughter throwing the leaves in the air…she AND the leaves are in focus. Amazing!!

Abby P - It’s been a while since I’ve checked out your blog. Love what you’ve “done to the place!” I’ve always loved your photos — envious of your talent, and will be checking back regularly to get some tips!

Four Speelmans Monthly: September

I feel like I very barely come up for air since school started.  I can’t believe my last post here is from our summer vacation?!  Isaac made the Walnut Hills Mens Soccer team back in August.  Truitt and Owen are also playing soccer and I literally have not stopped moving – except to sleep, since August:).  It’s been a fun and wild ride, but I am getting worn down pretty quickly.  I have barely picked up my camera which makes me quite sad.  The soccer games are challenging to photograph due to the large field and my lack of an appropriate lens.  I borrowed a telephoto lens from one of our gracious custodians at school and I’m LOVING it!!
