A Snowy Sunday Photoshoot

Hello, my friends!

Guess what? (I think you probably already have.) It finally snowed here! After not getting a decent snow at all last winter, I was delighted to wake up and to white outside. There’s just something so magical about the first snow day of the year, isn’t there?

Knowing me, you guys won’t be surprised that the main thing I did with the snow was photograph it. XD I did also enjoy eating snow cream and walking around our farm to see how different everything appeared.

Anyway, this post is about the photography part. Enjoy falling snowflakes, a happy dog, and generally a lot of white space. ๐Ÿ™‚

Morning Light Photography

Hello, dears!

Today I have some more lovely light photography for you! Instead of a photoshoot at golden hour, I took these in the morning. Sometimes I go outside to feed the rabbits or something and find too much beauty to leave unphotographed, which naturally means I postpone my other plans and take some pictures before the light changes. ๐Ÿ™‚

This time, instead of editing my photos as usual, I decided just to let the pictures shine as they are – terrible pun intended. I did edit a few very minimally, but for the most part these are straight out of the camera!

Enjoy the results of me wandering around the yard with a camera in dreamy lighting. ๐Ÿ™‚

Sunflower at Golden Hour {Sisters Photoshoot}

Hello, dears!

I’m back with the promised golden hour photoshoot today! My sister Megan received a beautiful sunflower shirt for review from this shop, so of course we had to get a bunch of pictures for her post. (Also I literally just realized I copied her title after I finished writing the post. :’D ) We had fun finding different photo locations and attemptingย to think of different poses, heh heh. I hope you enjoy these golden photos!

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. ๐Ÿ˜› 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!

Golden Hour Walk + My Favorite Music

Hello, dears!

Last Saturday evening I decided to wander around our farm and take some pictures, and I’m so glad I did! The woods and fields looked so peaceful and gorgeous in the golden light. โค Since the lighting was perfect, I focused on adjusting the settings in the moment to capture beauty without having to edit it later.

I absolutely love how the photos turned out, but instead of just saying that after every photo, I’m going to share some of my favorite music interspersed throughout with a link to a YouTube video for each of them. ๐Ÿ™‚ I mostly listen to Christian music, but I also have a few pop, country, classical/instrumental, and folk songs on my playlist. Pretty much whatever strikes my fancy. XD They’re all clean, though; you don’t have to worry about that. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Now, I hope you enjoy the photoshoot and maybe even find some new music to add to your collection!

~ Fields of Purple ~

Hello, dears!

I’ve loved purple basically my whole life, so I was thrilled to see a little “meadow” of purple henbit pop up in one of our fields. Henbit is rather an ugly weed up close, but from the right perspective it can be stunning – so of course, I set off with my camera to find and capture that right perspective. ๐Ÿ˜‰

My little sister and I went to explore it one morning, but sadly I can’t find the pictures from that day. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ At least I still have these pictures (which are probably better anyway) from more recently to show you guys! This will be a short and sweet post, but I hope you enjoy all this sun-soaked purple as I have. ๐Ÿ™‚

Photography Challenge {My Entries}

Hello, dears!

A little while ago, the marvelousย Amanda came up with a 12-day photography challenge for her photographer friends and herself. I was one of the aforementioned, and it was a lot of fun! Several of us contributed prompts and then posted our photos from each day on a Google Doc, so all the other participants could see them as well. I enjoyed intentionally creating photos instead of just snapping a picture of whatever was already there, like I usually do.

So, as you might guess, today I’ll be showing you the photos I took for this challenge! Continue reading
