Halloween Traditions

This year was the first year we carved pumpkins with our son. He’s almost 2.5 and still a little young to help but we thought he could help carve out the inside and that he would enjoy watching Daddy turn his pumpkin into Mickey Mouse. We were wrong about him wanting to help pull out the seeds, he thought it was so gross!! We should have known since our tough guy, who falls down a hundred times a day and doesn’t say a peep, doesn’t like to get his hands dirty. We finally got him to help by using a spoon but it was short lived. However, the first thing he asked me the next morning was to turn off the lights and see Mickey Mouse 😉

Even if our Halloween tradition is very typical and didn’t necessarily go how we had planned it’s still a great memory and almost even better because his faces are just priceless!!




carleeCarlee lives in south eastern Massachusetts and is a wife and a mom to a 2 year old little boy. They are expecting number 2 in the spring! She started out as a studio portrait photographer but after having her son she realized she never cared about bringing him to her studio to have the perfect background, props and outfit. She wanted pictures of him that really show who he is in his natural surroundings. She wants him to someday look back and SEE his childhood, the home he grew up in and the things he loved. And she wants this for herself too!  Life is going by way to quickly for Carlee and she’s so afraid to forget any moment, big or small. After all someday today will be the good old days! So photography helps her preserve every moment 🙂 She is currently transitioning from a studio portrait photographer to a storytelling photographer so she can also capture these real memories for her clients. Besides photography Carlee is also a graphic designer and designs custom wedding stationery and invitations for all sorts of events. She also loves sweets and lazy nights watching her favorite TV shows snuggled up in her PJs.

    Love you all 😉ReplyCancel
