Our upstate NY vacation to Lake Placid – part 1, part 2.

I didn’t dedicate a whole post to it but September was a huge milestone – It’s the month I left my full-time office job and because a full-time stay at home mommy & photographer!

MY BIRTHDAY was in September!  Another year older but it just keeps getting better!

I started a new series on my photography blog.  Make sure you check it out and continue to check in every week!

A peek around our house – summer 2016.

For my local, central New Jersey readers – I am currently booking fall mini sessions for one day only – Saturday October 22nd!  I would love to capture your families precious fall memories.  Email for more details!


  1. Rummage sale!  We have everything in a pile in the basement + asked our neighbors if we can borrow a 6 ft folding table so now it’s just a matter of having good weather on a Saturday!
  2. Print pictures for my 2016 365 project.  I have the photo album that I’ll be using (it’s similar to what I used for last year’s 52-project) but I have zero pictures printed so far. (copied from July + August….)
  3. Pull together a solid list of activities that Peyton and I can do together during the day.  Learning things – colors, letters, numbers, words, etc.  I know she’s only 16 months but just this week she learned to tell us what a horse says (she’s always been able to repeat the ‘neigh’ sound but now if I point out a horse she automatically says ‘neigh’.  She knows the sounds for a cow, dog, and sheep too!!)  She’s absorbing so much but I want to find specific activities that we can do.  Or that she can do independently which is still a little difficult because everything goes straight to her mouth.)
  4. Rock my fall mini sessions!

Until next time — Cindy
