Happy Pups & Grumpy Cats

Hello, dears!

We recently visited our old farm and the area where we used to live because of some graduation parties, so I made use of the time to get plenty of cute pet pictures. πŸ˜‰ I didn’t get many of Pebbles, sadly, but I did photograph my cousins’ adorable newΒ  puppy and two of their three cats. I’m pretty pleased with how the photos turned out, and I hope you guys are too! Enjoy your daily dose of cuteness!

Sweet Sixteen Barn Dance

Hello, dears!

Remember how one of our friends had a barn dance at our shop last year for her birthday party? Well, this year we did it again and it was SO much fun! The shop was a mess, so it was a good thing we had a dance motivating us to clean it up. πŸ˜› I took plenty of pictures throughout the preparation and actual party, of course, and I hope you guys enjoy browsing through them!

Whatever Floats Your Boat {Pond Swimming}

Hello, dears!

Remember the post from last year about swimming in our duckweed-covered pond? Well, it’s swimming season again and “our pool is open!” XD It’s a rather greenish pool, but hey, it’s water, right?

One Sunday evening a couple of weeks ago, we all went down to the dock and my siblings went swimming and canoeing. Sort of. I stayed on dry land and took photos instead, heh heh. I managed to capture quite a lot of amusing action shots and funny expressions, which I hope you enjoy as much as I do!

Ready? Set? Go!

The Library {Indoor Photography}

Hello, dears!

Today I have a different sort of photoshoot for you. While I was taking pictures for my Day in the Life post, I found a bunch of interesting subjects in our library and just kept snapping as I walked around. πŸ˜› I usually prefer nature photography, but it was fun to capture the texture of man-made things and the character of our old farmhouse from the inside. I hope you enjoy the tour!

Hay Days

Hello, dears!

By the time May rolls around, the orchard grass and fescue are getting tall and ripe in the hayfields, ready for the first harvest of the season. I took these photos of my dad and brother baling a field a little while ago, and thought you guys might like to see some behind-the-scenes (and some picturesque farm landscapes πŸ˜› )! I don’t usually photograph tractors or machinery that much, but it was fun for different. πŸ™‚

Enjoy!
