You Capture - Family and a Little Bit of Fall

This week's You Capture had a variety of subjects. I chose two of them to feature with a heavy emphasis on family. After all, what's more 'family' that a brand new member and what could possibly take precedence over her.

She was born October 1st.

And we photographed all the newborn processes.

After she was home, we watched and photographed some of those amazing mother/baby moments.

And of course sibling/baby moments.

Last night I visited after having been away for a few days. Clara is growing up already.

She almost smiled here.

Anna and Noah are back to their fun-loving selves.

And adorable Eli was involved in an intense game of Wii. I wonder what he'd think if he knew his controller didn't work.

Before I headed to Beth's I opened my back door to gale force winds, set up my tripod and photographed our koi pond.

Obviously it was pouring but you can still see the colors and images of some of the koi. You can also see some of the colors and images of all the leaves that are blowing into the koi pond. I sure hope we have a good weekend ahead because the pond will need a major clean-up.

And I sure hope Beth gives us another shot at 'Fall' because the weather the last few days has been horrendous.

For more You Capture and fewer excuses, visit Beth's I Should Be Folding Laundry.


  1. Clara has already changed so much. You really do have some beautiful grandbabies. Yes, it's me Nancy. I'll get around to figuring out what's wrong with my blog at some point. At least people can comment again.

  2. My favorite is the very first picture. Absolutely adorable!!!

  3. I love your new baby! CONGRATULATIONS : ). What a pretty name. I love her big brother with the broken wii too. How cute is he? : ) I hope your weather turns nicer so you can enjoy the pretty fall days.

  4. Those close-ups of Clara are just SO wonderful! I adore all your photos and how much love you have for your children and grandchildren. :-)

  5. Beautiful photos! I love them all!

  6. Love sweet Clara's almost-smile. And remotes that don't actually work are our little secret, aren't they?? =>

  7. All of the pics are great, but I absolutely adore the first one. The expression on her face is just perfect. I'm glad you got to go for a visit.

  8. wow, loving all of the awesome pictures. It's amazing how fast Clara is growing already!!!


Gentle, strong, kind or true, I'd love to hear what you have to say.
Short or long, it's up to you, your comments and thoughts really make my day!
