Oh October...

October and I have a love/hate relationship. Professionally, October is one of the most grueling months I have to endure year after year. As a Business Architect and Process Design Specialist in the Health Insurance industry I must ensure my work is complete and handed off to my stakeholders with plenty of time for Technology, Training, Client Implementation, Consumer Communications, Recruiting and Workforce Readiness to do their thing by January 1 launches. I should not complain; a hellish October beats being overworked in December. This hate of October is painful in that prior to launching my career it was always my favorite month; crispy leaves, caramel apples, pumpkin picking, homecoming, the World Series, hay rides, mums, Halloween. October does have so much going for it but all too often I miss it with stressful, late nights at work.

October is especially beautiful as a photographer; the colors, the light, the family fun, all contribute to some of the most wonderful photographic moments of the year. I wanted to share some of my favorites from this October, mostly as a reminder to myself that I was still able to squeeze a little fun between deadlines.

Yo Chelle, October is STILL my favorite month-for many of the reasons you mentioned. Luckily my job has not killed it for me-yet.
