A Forest Photoshoot

Hello, dears!

I know it’s fall now and everyone’s looking for oranges and reds, but I wanted to quick sneak in some green photos before we get too much further into the season. ๐Ÿ˜‰ I took these a couple weeks ago when the light started taking on that golden fall look but the woods were still lush and green. I had so much fun editing these vibrant pictures – hope you enjoy them!

Hello, dears!

I’m finally back with a collection of the random photos I’ve acquired since my last Etcetera post! ๐Ÿ˜€ Some of the pictures for today include vibrant sunsets, undignified cats, friends’ engagement photos, a baby turtle I rescued, my brother playing drums, and a large collection of paper butterflies.

I’m never quite sure what I hope to accomplish with these posts, but if you’re interested in pretty photos or hearing random bits about a farm girl’s life, mayhaps you will enjoy this scrapbooky collection. ๐Ÿ™‚ There’s only one way to find out, isn’t there? So, onwards! To the pictures!

Chains, Goats, & Flower Gardens {Golden Hour Photoshoot}

Hello, dears!

How’s that for a random title? I was looking for something like, “A Post Where I Wander Around the Yard and Take Photos of Lots of Random Things at Golden Hour,” but that would be a tad long. It would have been helpfully explanatory, however, since that’s what this post is about. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Walking around and taking pictures is honestly one of my favorite things. It’s so refreshing, plus I get to be creative at the same time. โค So yeah, I hope you guys enjoy taking this evening walk with me! ๐Ÿ™‚

Field Work at Golden Hour {Hay Baling & Farm Life}

Hello, dears!

It’s baling season right now, so my dad and brothers are out pretty much nonstop during the day, cutting and baling and putting away the hay and straw we will sell later. Despite all the nature pictures I take, I don’t often make a post about field work or farm life like this for some reason. So I hope you enjoy today’s photoshoots!

Harvesting is one of the most interesting parts of farm work to watch, I think, and it’s also one of the most beautiful to photograph… particularly when you’re taking pictures during golden hour. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Enjoy some peaceful fields, sunrays, and a little bit of farm trivia! ๐Ÿ˜€ Let’s do this.

Golden Days {Farewell to Teenage Years +a Photoshoot}

Hello, dears!

Welp, today I officially turn twenty. O.o I feel so old, good gracious. So far my birthday has been amazing, especially the part where almost 30 of my friends sent me birthday videos that GAHHH made me smile so hard. If you’re reading this, dears – thank you for making my day X100. โค โค โค I love you girls so much!

*deep breath* Anyway, where was I? Oh yes. This birthday post is going to be one of my favorite kinds – a pretty golden hour photoshoot, because those make me happy. ๐Ÿ™‚ And instead of photo captions, maybe I’ll do kind of a “Thoughts On…” ramble about how it feels to not be a teenager anymore because whyyyy does everyone act like it’s terrible to be one? It can be, but it can also be wonderful. So yeah.

Let’s go for a walk and take pictures of flowers and chat about life. Let’s have a golden day, shall we?

Spring Playlist + Aesthetic {2020}

Hello, dears!

Let’s talk about music! I’ve had a lot of fun putting together another playlist post for you guys today since my, it’s been a while. Spring always seems like a season of hope to me, despite whatever the news is saying right now. It’s hard to be too sad when I go outside and see new green life spreading over the old brown world as it always does, year after year…

So here are a few of my recent favorites and hopeful songs to brighten you day. I hope you enjoy! Grab your earbuds or speaker and let’s get listening. ๐Ÿ™‚

Thoughts On… {Seeing Beyond}

Have you ever been out walking in the golden evening when the world is soft and quiet and the honey sun coats everything?

Have you ever seen the brown and dull things glow around the edges, gilded by the light, or a sullen cloud with a silver lining and just… it just looked beautiful, even if it was the saddest looking thing the last time you passed by? Sometimes the light makes flowers on the trees where nothing exists but brown buds, shining and illuminated with warmth.

What I am asking is, have you ever seen the sun transfigure ordinary things into something glorious?

I have seen it happen. And I know, whatever happens, I cannot quite give up hope…

Explore with Me 001 | Golden Hour Walk

Hello, dears!

I don’t know about you, but I spend WAY too much time on the computer. I could give a lot of good excuses, some of which are legitimate, but still, the fact remains. I do love being outside and especially exploring our land with my family, but I don’t have much motivation to go outside by myself because it feels like such a waste of time when I could be doing many more useful things inside. Anyone else??

But. Yesterday I was tired of being on a screen and it looked beautiful out there, so I decided to give myself a break and take my camera and just walk around. And it was lovely. Sometimes a breath ofย  fresh air is useful in itself, right?

I hope these pictures can inspire you to take a screen break (after this post, of course ๐Ÿ˜‰ ) and find some beauty where you live!
