As a parent, it’s difficult sometimes to think outside the box when it comes to halloween treats – all we see when we walk into the grocery store is so much candy.  Well recently I was happy to see some affordable choices for halloween at my local target and other stores.

 And hey, one kids trash may be another kids treasure! I have tons of long forgotten little treasures of little toys and things received at past birthday parties etc. It may be a good time to dig down to the bottom of the toybox and find some of those items still in good shape and do a little recycling – why not!?

Here are a few ideas (taken from www.greenhalloween.org) to help get you started!   Got any spare change? I remember getting pennies or nickles (or a quarter if you were lucky) in my trick or treat bag when I was a kid.  I loved that!

I love photographing kids with H names!  And this little one never lets me down.  I was told that at last years session she was little miss grumpy.   Well, she’s a very well behaved little miss grumpy then because I didn’t even notice. ha!  This year, she was a doll!  So sweet, and fun.  We played fairy and she blew us all over with her very strong winded kisses!!

This is such a fun location – full of nooks, crannies, colors, and of course garbage cans so we can look for Oscar the Grouch!  Luckily the garbage cans are more dressed up than most.  And luckily for the garbage can obsessed {N} there were plenty to be found.  :)

Thanks Chris and Kat!!!  Here’s a little sneak peek…

OH how I loved this family and this beautiful day!!! The sunlight was beautiful in September this year.   I’m missing it!   Although it looks like we are having another beautiful day today.    I’m a CSA member of Jubilee farms in Carnation this summer and have really really enjoyed this beautiful farm.  Erick and Wendy, the owners have been so kind to grant me permission to use their property for photography sessions.    http://www.jubileefarm.org/

Thank you Ulrike and Leif!  It was great seeing {F} and {F} again – they’ve grown SO much.

I don’t get that many senior boys typically, but when I do, it’s always a treat.  Kyle – you are so handsome! Thanks for asking me to take your senior portraits!

LOVE this location he  took me to.  The bushes were taller than me along this trail.

Oh my these two are super cute!!  I was so honored to have been asked back to capture {A}’s first birthday and photograph big sister {R} again.   They are both full of spunk and cuteness.  I loved it!!    And you can imagine mom has her hands full with these two – but does a great job of it!  My own kids are close in age too, and I know just how challenging that can be at times.  But it’s so sweet to see two sisters that are practically the same size!

What cuties!! {M} was such a riot, I loved her expressions and sense of humor – I still chuckle when I remember the things she said to me.  haha!   {J} took a bit to warm up with me that day – we managed to get him to come around eventually, and when he does – his face sure lights up!

The location (Bothell Landing Park) was a perfect setting for this beautiful family too.

Julie, thanks so much for asking me to capture your beautiful family!
