Autumn is a favorite time of year to capture children’s photos amid the gorgeous Fall glowing leaf and sky colors!
Being able to document these children and their sweet personalities is pure joy. Each one is so different, so caring and kind, so special! They have great parents and are so blessed in many ways! I feel blessed to know them and see them often!

Who doesn’t like weaving spider webs for plastic spiders?
Or scraping the guts out of a pumpkin and saving the slimy seeds to roast?
Just a couple “lifestyle photos” in my Fall Family season collection! Super Fall Fun!

Today is All Saints’ Day on the Christian church calendar. It’s a day to celebrate those sinner-saints who have gone before us to their heavenly rest.
During this beautiful Autumn season I’ve spent some time walking and photographing in Jefferson Barracks National Cemetery, St Louis, MO, not far from where we live.
When my parents moved from Ohio to the St Louis area in early 2015, they changed their plans so that this national cemetery would be their final resting place.
Our dad is now at perfect peace and has been committed to JBNC since his recent passing from this earth. It’s a sad/happy time for us. Sad because we miss him so much–almost daily visiting, laughing, eating ice cream together, singing and listening to polka music, hearing his great stories about family and World War II and travel experiences and more.
We’re happy and comforted to know that we’ll see him in heaven someday, because we believe Jesus’ promise that’s written in John 11:25-26: “I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies; and whoever lives and believes in me will never die.”
God blessed Dad with almost 95 years of life on this earth, with a beautiful and loving bride of 70 years plus, and with a caring family and many friends. For all this, we’re so thankful.
See you later, Dad.
“In Christ alone my hope is found, He is my light, my strength, my song.”
“For every sin on Him was laid; here in the death of Christ I live!”

Parenting isn’t “a walk in the park”! But this daddy makes it look easy as he and little one reach for each other’s hand and walk on a mild winter afternoon.
So little. So big. Looking up. Looking down. Reaching up. Reaching down. So trusting. So giving.
It’s great to see a father’s love and a daughter’s trust. May it grow and grow, bloom and blossom!
