COLE & HIS RED TRUCK | ALLOUEZ, WISCONSIN

While ENJOYING a little trip up to Door County a few weeks ago we visited a few country markets along the road and picked up a few pumpkins, aren’t they gorgeous? The day Cole & I decorated our porch for fall we decided to do an impromptu autumn session to honor his love for the season.

A few weeks ago Troy’s parent’s also know as Gigi & Poppy visited us and they brought along Grandma Weeks. It was the first time Troy’s Grandma has been able to come visit us here in Wisconsin and we were so glad to have her. The first two days the trio visited we spent our time on a little mini getaway in Door County. We enjoyed shopping our favorite lakeside stores including…..

THE HELGESONS | DANIEL TIGERS HALLOWEEN | ALLOUEZ, WI

All year Cole has had his eye on a Tigey the Adventure Tiger costume for Halloween. I have never heard of a kid this young having his sights so honed in on one costume and not once changed his mind throughout the full year. 

What kind of Mom would I be if I didn't make his little dreams come true?!

THE HELGESONS | ROMBACH'S PUMPKIN FARM | CHESTERFIELD, MO

Our little monkeys first trip to the Pumpkin Patch. The Pumpkin Patch that my family has been going to since I was born. Rombach’s is a part of our autumn as much as Halloween and a family tradition we hate to see end. However Rombach’s has been forced out of their property by the ever growing Chesterfield Valley. What once was a family farm on the outskirts has become in the middle of the now shopping mecca. It’s sad to see such memories fade away and we’re forever grateful we got to share it with Cole.

ERIC & KATE | SOULARD FARMERS MARKET ENGAGEMENT | ST. LOUIS, MO

It was such a pleasure getting to know this couple. Two of the sweetest people I've ever met. Clearly made for each other, these two kind hearts made each other smile constantly. We actually did this engagement session the evening before their Wedding. Such a fun way to spend the big night before, relaxing and loving on each other before the big day. Eric and Kate were obviously not nervous at all, we just walked around Soulard snapping photos before heading over to their Rehearsal at The 9th Street Abbey.
