EEEP, if you need some cheering up today, I got a smile for you! Or maybe a couple dozen. I am seriously SO excited for this post – this may be my favorite photoshoot yet. I love everything about it.
The other evening I took some golden-hour pictures of my youngest sister with her beloved, adorable dwarf goat and… *flails* I love these photos so so much, and I hope they’ll make you guys grin as much as they did for me! (Warning: this may make you want a dwarf goat and/or a little sister. 😛 )
Okay. Here we go. Get ready for some cuteness.
SEE WHAT I MEAN?? Just… everything. The lighting was perfect, Dad had just baled a photogenic hayfield, Carmen (my sister) and Nellie (the goat) were adorable, so how could I go wrong?
Nellie is the most adorable goat to ever live.
Heh heh, Carmen came up with several of the poses and this was one of them. *grins widely* Good thing Nellie is a longsuffering pet. (This whole photoshoot was really her dream – an hour of attention an petting and holding.)
Maggie (our dog) accompanied us all over to another fresh haybale by a glowing tree. *heart eyes*
What cracks me up throughout this whole photoshoot is the contrast between Carmen’s and Nellie’s expressions. :’D
I think I was telling her that whenever she had a hard time smiling naturally, it usually helps to pretend to laugh because that ends up making you actually laugh. It worked. 😀
Carmen wondered if she could make a little nest for herself and Nellie in one of the windrows, to which I agreed. We kinda had a bumper crop of hay this year, so the rows nearly swallowed them up!
One of my absolute favorites from this shoot. 😀 😀 😀
After a while in that field, we crossed over to the wheatfield on the other side of the tree border to catch the last light.
BAHAHAHA LOOK AT NELLIE. “Yes, you may kiss the queen.”
❤ ❤ ❤
I got a few last ones as we headed home, but the light was fading fast. The pale sky and bleached wheatstalks made such a dreamy effect, but sadly a lot of the pictures ended up blurry. Also BAD NELLIE, I think she’s about to eat a soybean plant in this one. XD
And that, my friends, is all for today! If you want to share this cuteness with others, repost it using the buttons at the end of this post, or pin the picture below to Pinterest!
*happy sigh* I loved making this post, and hopefully you guys loved reading it!
Have you survived un-melted? Would you like to see more photoshoots of Carmen and Nellie?
Thanks so much for reading, dears, and have a lovely day!
