Is it already Fall and the end of September?!?! Seriously, I feel like life is just speeding by!

Kinda scary!

The week flew by, and I am so happy that I had my first few sessions this past week, which was just a small test of what October is going to be for me! 

Take a look at the sneak peeks and reveals from last week! I finally finished out the remaining Virginia sessions as well!

So much goodness this week!!! 

I didn’t do much blogging this week as I am in the midst of making changes to the blog! But I did do a couple of “A Look Back On the Blog” Posts.

Here was the top blog post of the week:

If you are on my Facebook Business Page, you will see that I made an announcement that I am almost FULLY booked for the remaining on 2015!!! This is such a blessing! California is definitely treating me well! If you are waiting to book a session for this year, DON’T!!! Contact me today to book a session and get you on the calendar!

I also photographed the Air Force Ball the other weekend, and was honored when I was asked to photograph the Navy Ball this year at Naval Postgraduate School! YAY! Will you be there?

Also, stay tuned for this weeks blog Posts! I’ll be talking all about Birth Photography and Fresh 48 Sessions! There will also be a new series called Thoughtful Thursday! Stay tuned!

Now on to my favorite image this week:

I seriously just can’t get over how beautiful this maternity session was with Sara! I am not one that uses a whole lot of black and white, but when I do, it is absolutely needed! This picture was one that needed to be black and white as it was just timeless!

The most “liked” image this week was another favorite cake smash session! As I posted, this is what I look like when I eat cake. The problem is Logan is a cute 1 year old! I am 30!! This is only acceptable for one of us!! 

That’s all for this week! Taking a few deep breaths as this weeks starts the very busy season for me!!! Wish me luck!!

<3 Vanessa
