Halloween 2014

CARISSA BYERS PHOTOGRAPHY: Halloween 2014 &emdash;

Lucy's babysitter, who also happens to be a talented seamstress, pulled out an array of old costumes her children wore when they were little. Lucy had her pick, but I can't say we didn't nudge her towards the bunny costume. Penn was allowed to be something scary for the first time, albeit still pretty tame on the 10 year old boy costume scale.

We played with the neighbor babies, trick or treated our street and then we handed out candy. Penn, Eddie and Mrs. Deborah walked the next street over to Avalon where Halloween is big fat deal.

Milo: Four Months

Four month old Milo is the sweetest thing. He loves his family. He does not love loud sounds like sneezes.

Milo: Three Months

CARISSA BYERS PHOTOGRAPHY: Milo: Three Months &emdash;
Milo is three months old. He is round and cuddly and sweet and soft. He laughs when I nibble his hands and it is the best little sound. Today he pooped in the tub. He seemed relieved. Lucy, not so much.

I think our house has fabulous windows that got lost in that boring old tan color. I wanted something really bold. Peppercorn was my first pick browsing colors online, but the swatch was practically black and I chickened out. We painted the brick Gauntlet Grey, the porch Dorian Grey, the trim bright white and the door black.

We also got the gutters repaired and leaf guards added.

It feels a lot cleaner and more modern which is a much better reflection of the inside and our taste. Now, on to dreaming about landscaping!

Lucy and Milo

CARISSA BYERS PHOTOGRAPHY: Lucy &emdash;
A few shots playing around in the studio with 2 year old Lucy and 2.5 month old Milo. These moments happen by chance. Like when I'm taking down lights and she wants to come in and help.

If I were to dare change their clothes, or at least put Milo in a onesie that fits or wipe the yogurt off Lucy's pants or her mouth or take off that band aid accessory or if I were to show any hint that I wanted to brush that beautiful mane of red hair, I'd never get the photo. Never.

For the record, this is not what I mean when I tell you I shoot lifestyle photography. But they are adorable.
