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!

Etcetera #13 {Skyscapes, Self-Portraits, Mysterious Feathers, and Inflatable Pineapples}

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!

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.

A Girl and a Goat {Extreme Cuteness Photoshoot}

Hello, dears!

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. ๐Ÿ˜› )

Okay. Here we go. Get ready for some cuteness.

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?

Sunbeams & Hay Bales

Hello, dears!

Yay, I finally get to share some of my favorite recent photos! Our cousins from Canada stayed at our house over New Years and we had many lovely adventures with them that will have to last us until we see them again. ๐Ÿ™‚

If kids (and sometimes) adults come over to our house and want to go outside, there’s a high chance we’ll take you to 1) the hay barn (basically an enormous, extremely dusty playground), or 2) one of the streams (which can provide hours of entertainment as well). As a bonus, they both make for some pretty fun pictures!

Enjoy this collection of sunbeams and hay bales and warm winter adventures!

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!

Etcetera #9

Hello, dears!

I’m back with another etcetera post today! If you’re new here, I use these posts to combine all the “orphan photos” and mini topics that aren’t quite big enough for their own post. It’s basically a virtual scrapbook of little moments from the past two months. ๐Ÿ™‚

Enjoy this collection of summer adventures, memorable explorations, golden hour photos, etc.!
