for the last 4 years we have been in washington state, we have made a tradition of getting our tree at a farm. I wish I had documented it each year, because when I saw through my lens of them pulling the cart and walking with the saw, I could see how much they had grown from the first time we came here.
we had a sunset picnic to watch the super moon eclipse, it was beautiful, clear purple skies for sunset. and a red red moon. of course i didn't carry lenses that could capture that beauty, but i could capture a few moments before dusk settled of my oldest in her excitement. we have been having warm sunny days then dropping to cooler (55 degree) mornings and evenings. fall is here. and we celebrated with warm nourishing chicken soup.
just some of my favorites from this session, some last photos of the family of 3 before their second child comes into the picture, very soon.
on today's day of celebrating mothers, i can say one thing: you're not alone, sister. and if you feel you are, i hope you have someone you can reach out to, and can quietly, with no words, wholeheartedly understand you, and all that you do.

beautiful days here. unbelievable how the wild beauty of the pacific northwest becomes illuminated when the skies are blue. and how the misty rain always brings out this moody ethereal atmosphere. it is february, and it is spring in western washington. cherry blossoms are blooming, we have sunny days with temperatures in the mid to late 50s and even breaking 60 in the afternoons. we took the opportunity of this great weather, early still that they can be awake for sunset (545pm is when it goes down). nick shared with the girls of the crabs that like to hide under the big rocks. veda loves to skip stones, or dunk them :)
