Stills from the weekend

Last week our little Tayte man thought it would be fun to get into the stage of pulling anything he saw off counters, chairs, desks, beds... you get the point. One of the things that was pulled off the counter was our SLR camera. 
LUCKILY the only the thing that broke was our lens and not the camera body. (ahh!!) I had a photo shoot this weekend and obviously needed a lens so we rented a newer and more intense lens. It was really fun to play around with this weekend.  So Brandon was my handsome model as I learned about the lens. 
Hiking 
We also went hiking with some friends and our goal was to see all the beautiful changing leaves. It turned out that the leaves were still pretty green with a few spurts of yellow and red. Nonetheless, it was peaceful to be hiking in nature and enjoyed the company we were with.

There were some questions as to how I did my hair.
 Its super simple: just two french braids on the sides and combined into one large french braid in the back.

Beautiful scenery as always Shelby! I had a chance to go to Ohio last weekend and the changing colors were breath taking! Not like the brown dirt and cactus here in Arizona! It looks like Tayte has a little red in his hair maybe? Enjoy the cooler weather!

Theres nothing like the fall to appreciate God's creations. So breathtaking. Almost as pretty as Utah mountains. :) Tayte is a doll. He's changing so much. Brandon looks like he is a model.

Ahh, note to self: when you go out with Shelby and Brandon never wear sweats! But maybe that is the best part about you guys, you are so comfortable to be around :)

Sorry about the camera when I read that I ached inside. Isn't fall just absolutely amazing. Each year I'm always amazed of beautiful it is. Sometimes I wish it lasted for months.
