This past weekend I had my camera in tow everywhere we went. Cortney had a professional shoot with a Chicago photographer, Jeff from Rebirth Photo. I took pictures of him taking pictures of Cort. Totally makes sense right? We had done the photo shoot at Lincoln Park Zoo. I hadn't been there for years, and I have to say it is a truly beautiful zoo. I seriously had my camera in front of my face the entire time. This lion...amazing right? We walked the Lincoln Park area and I took a few photos of the historic Brownstones. Brian snapped a quick photo of me on our walk. We went to a trendy restaurant on Halsted street called, Summer House. The food was amazing!

Cortney had received a gorgeous one of a kind coat from a sweet lady, Ellen. She is owner of Kaleidoscope Wear. She makes each one of a kind coat with so much love and thought to detail. I loved the coat so much that I am getting one too! So I guess when mine is done, we may have to do a mother daughter session! ;)
It is almost time for of course I couldn't pass up the opportunity to dress up my pups! They are always willing models for the crazy lady with the camera!  My husband told me he was disappointed in the photos I took.  He stated that no one is going to know what they are dressed as.  Maybe he is right....but I am hoping with the stripes and little pom poms that people will figure it out! ;)  Maybe I will have to take a few photos from behind.

We went apple picking yesterday....but I was too tired to upload and edit the photos. So those will be coming at a later date. So this is why I have nothing crafty to share. I've been spending my time on my photography skills. Time with my family. Creating memories. My youngest is going to college in less than a year. I need to enjoy these days...they are fleeting. Thank you for humoring me.....and letting me share other passions in my life! HAve a great day!

The costumes are adorable. The dogs are pretty cute too! I think they have something to do with FOOTBALL! Everything right now has something to do with the game. Have a fun day. I enjoy all the pictures. Thanks for sharing.
