in utah, fall lasts for about two weeks.

and those two weeks are the most beautiful time of year.

we have had  beautiful weather these last few weeks and i wish it would never end.

we took leah, chase, and beck up a little hill behind lincoln's parents house and took some fall family pictures.

the leaves right now are absolutely AMAZING!

and beck is the cutest ever.

this is my favorite:

and some of us:

 this is how we pretend we are: 

but this is how we really are:
that's the face lincoln scares children with...

and the best photos of the day:

we love this little guy:

oh!  and i forgot to mention that i got a new camera last week!!

a lot of you have asked before what camera i use...

well, now i have the amazing nikon d700!  it has brought my life so much happiness... haha.

before i had the nikon d80, which i believe is one of the best cameras nikon has ever made.

but good pictures are a product of good lens.

one lens that i've had forever is the 50mm f/1.8.  it's really inexpensive and a great lens.

i also use a 35mm f/2 that i bought a few months ago.

that's all i use.  two lenses.

how wonderful are those leaves?

Ah i was always wondering what camera/lenses you use! Thank you so much for sharing!! Your photos are beautiful... the expressions you got out of that little one are adorable.

I wish we had leaves like that out in Cali... here, it just gets colder and sometimes a little rainy.

Congrats on the new camera! My dad got a new camera a while back which is a death sentence to my camera. I can't not play with the new one.
