it's definitely october...

because it's breast cancer awareness month.

i had the pleasure of photographing the breast cancer candlelight vigil on thursday night, and loved it. not only are candlelight events so much fun to photograph, this is a cause that is important to me and my family. my aunt's recent treatment and remission has encouraged me to support a number of breast cancer groups and events, and i want to encourage EVERYONE to support breast cancer awareness this month. wear pink! support the survivors. and do something as simple as clicking a button once a day to fund mammograms. (and while you're there, feed a hungry child, save an acre of rainforest, help animal's an awesome website!)

great button i found:
The Breast Cancer Site
and they have the coolest stores that donate a percentage of sales to each of the causes. their free trade items are awesome, and i'm tempted to buy all of my christmas presents here. would be quite unique and very eco-friendly.

so anyways, some of my favorite candlelight shots. was so digging the bokeh here...

and i love luminaries. relay for life, holidays, any event with luminaries, i'm just fascinated with them.

because it's definitely the middle of football season.

so my friday photo job got rained out, thank goodness. after nearly a week of upper 80 temps, we finally got back into the fall weather friday afternoon, with rainy weather and a sharp drop in temperature. i wasn't really looking forward to staying out in the gross weather for high school football, and i just needed a break :)

we also had to pleasure of hosting linda and brandon last night, and enjoyed a great dinner and evening of hanging out and catching up. we all made it out to the game this morning, complete with tailgate pics (again, got hit on--i asked for a phone number and heard a guy in the back say, "i'd like the photographer's phone number..." sheesh...) , our own quick tailgate of some bojangles, and then a very wet, very chilly game. but we won! and we had a great time watching the pirates FINALLY show what they're capable of.
my sweet husband let me wear his hat since i didn't have a hood and it was drizzling the whole second half.and the final sign that it's october...because we got pepper a halloween outfit.

granted, it was just five bucks at target, but it's her first "official" outfit. and as you can see, she wasn't so thrilled with having it on at first. she's tolerating it now and had it on pretty much all day today. so cute!
