Fall family fun

We’ve enjoyed getting pumpkins and celebrating fall with my sister Danielle for several years (here is my post from last October)  and this year – for the first time – our other sister now graduated from college, was able to join us.  It was a muddy, perfect, beautiful, cold day.  Upon peeking outside at the weather, I grabbed my bulky old Minolta SLR for the adventure.  The pictures I get on that camera are always better than the ones from our little digital pocket camera so I decided it was worth the hassle for this lovely day:

If you’ve made it this far, bravo!  Here are my top two reasons for busting out my old 35 mm camera:

Audie and Daddy

Those eyes melt my heart.  All four of them.

Mama and Kyler

I love this boy.



Great pictures Karissa! Love & Hugs!

Oh, sweet! Such fun! Love the matching boots idea, and especially the ones of you & Christopher with kids. We bought pumpkins at the trader joes pumpkin patch (yes, they actually called it that all fenced in, in the parking lot). Audrey’s coat is very cute.


Looks like it was a very fun day! Love the picture of Kyler kissing you, very sweet of him.


Pics are gorgeous!! You can totally see the difference between the two cameras. I need some prints of some of these for sure. What a fun, fun day that was.


The pictures are priceless! Keep it up Karissa. Love you!
