Photostory Friday~ The Growth of a Pumpkin


Hosted by Cecily and MamaGeek



Struggling to come up with a suitable Photostory this week, since I am short on time. I have taken a TON of photos, but have edited nearly none. What's a girl to do? Go back in her photo files....THAT'S WHAT!!!!

I'd like to share a few of my favorite photos of Halloween Season's past. The first features a nearly 10 month old Sugar Bear naked in a freshly carved pumpkin. I have to say that this is quite possible one of my most favorite photo shoots I have ever done. While I wish I had a better camera at the time, I think I did quite well for knowing absolutly NOTHING about photography. Sugar Bear was quite the sport if you ask me. Look at her....all happy....trapped in a pumpkin. AWWWWWWW.....you have to admit....you want to pinch those cheeks, huh?

This second shot features a 21 month old Sugar having a blast in our 2006 fall photo shoot. Sigh....she still has those delightful cheeks, and her joy melts my heart.

This last photo, was taken last fall at the pumpkin patch. Sadly, I did not manage a fall photo shoot last year due to some pretty gloomy weather, and a less than cooperative Sugar Bear. I love this photo for entirely different reasons than the other two. Unlike the others, she isn't exuding happiness. In fact she looks quite glum. I cherish this photo none the less, as it brings back such wonderful memories of a fabulously fun family day. It was our first time at this pumpkin patch, and following the Sugar around discovering all it had to offer was a blessing for this mama.

I love the 2006 fall photo shot. I might just have to steal that idea for my two year old. I would love to try to get her naked in a pumpkin, but something tells me she would not go for it!

Christina said...

Oh. My. Gosh!!!! Baby Sugar IN a pumpkin! That is the sweetest ever. Seriously. I'm just loving seeing these vintage Sugar images. :o)

Michelle said...

I love these comparison photos! The first one is too cute for words! I have a question - when you talk about editing your photos, what exactly do you do to them? Crop? Change the lightning/the tone? And how do you find the time to edit all those pictures?! LOL

Deb said...

Amanda D said...

These are WONDERFUL shots of Sugar Bear--my God she's gorgeous!!!!! I love the pumpkin the best though-and if that were Sophie it would be hanging in the family room for sure!
You are a fantastic photographer--good for you Corey! I always love to see your pictures.

Jo Beaufoix said...

I love those shots Corey. And what have you got planned for this year?
