sugar and spice and all things nice

this girlie here? she is a the sweetest of peas. 
beautiful blue eyes, dark, curly eyelashes (yes, I'm jealous.), adorable freckles, and the sweetest smile of all time.

we had a great time. along with my sister (who was holding umbrellas in the very likely event of rain), we chatted about dancing, dogs, birthdays, hats, and all that goodness. 
the best part? this darlin' lives next door to me.

did I mention that she looks way better in hats than I do?

you'll probably be seeing many more pictures of this wee poppet. 

terrifically curly eyelashes. I want some.

I can't tell you all how amazingly good it was to be taking portraits again. seriously. I nearly died from happiness. 

as much as I love leaves and flowers, it was so blissful taking pictures of a sweet, little face that made gorgeous expressions and laughed and smiled. 
leaves just don't do that, you know?

gumboots, hats, scarves, knitted cardigans.
puddles, leaves, chilly air, grey sky.
it's all part of it.

an autumn photo shoot.
where black and whites are a must and hats are a necessity. 

thanks my little sweet-pea from next door. you have given my autumn the best of beginnings.

done any autumn photo shoots lately?

P.S. the winners of spot the blogger will be announced on the next post!
