In Which I Meet a Pen Pal

Hello, dears!

GUESS WHAT? I recently got to meet one of my pen pals and blogger friends, the amazing Charis Rae! She and her family visited our farm and spent the night in our guest house last week, and we all had SO much fun together, ahhh!

Charis is pen pals with Megan and I, and her sister is pen pals with my sister Carmen. It was super neat to see each other in real life for the first time! The rest of our siblings got along wonderfully too, and it was just all around a lovely time. πŸ™‚

Enjoy some of my favorite photos from their visit!

Fields & Fences {Sister’s Photoshoot}

Hello, dears!

A couple of weeks ago, I did a senior photoshoot for a friend of a friend’s son (well THAT was confusing), and practiced the day before with this little mini shoot of my youngest sister. πŸ˜€ Some of these poses worked better for a senior guy than a little girl, obviously, but she was the only volunteer, so I just went with it anyway. XD

Even though I didn’t use all the poses and locations in the real shoot, we had a lot of fun walking around the farm at golden hour and taking a bunch of photos. I hope you enjoy a sampling of the result!
