{Fall Crafts} – Seattle Area Lifestyle Photographer

It’s been a long time since my last blog post, but I figured that I should dust off the old blog and share what’s going on in my life lately. I’ve been taking a break from the business side of photography for the past year for various reasons. In taking this break, I’ve reconnected to what drew me into photography in the first place, which was my love of capturing the joy and wonder every time my kids learn something new. Lately, we’ve been enjoying our gorgeous dry, fall weather. ¬†One good thing to come out of the obnoxiously bad Seattle summer was that we’ve been having a lovely, lovely fall. The leaves around here have been turning GORGEOUS colors. At every park, and every walk, the boys and I pick some leaves off the ground, take them home to press, and then I had a bunch of pretty leaves for pretty art crafts and projects.

Leaf Fight!

Dried, pressed leaves ready for crafting. I love the assortment of colors.

I used this leaf lantern tutorial to help make these lanterns with the boys. They used them as flashlights for our nightly walks.

Then we took up mask making.

First we painted on some glue

Then we added glitter. Lots and lots of glitter.

Lots and lots and LOTS of glitter.

And after drying overnight, voila! Who is that masked child? I think he looks a little bit like an owl.

My youngest was very very serious behind his leaf mask.

And even mom and dad got to join in on the leaf mask fun as well
