Fall Fest 2021 {Event Photography}

Hello, my friends!

Has anyone else gone to multiple Fall Festivals this year? I feel like there were so many of them! And they were all fun! I was especially looking forward to this Fall Fest since our friends who host it always do such a good job of filling the day with fun games and contests and food and barn dancing. I got to be an event photographer again and I’m so happy with how the pictures turned out! Here’s a little sampling of them.

Enjoy some pumpkins, bistro lights, and cute kids!

MacRae’s Senior Photoshoot

Hello, my friends!

I got to take senior pictures for one of my friends earlier in October! I’m so happy with how they turned out. We had a lot of fun because it’s pretty much impossible not to have fun with MacRae. I loved capturing her contagious smile, goofy pose ideas, and beautiful spirit. Enjoy some pretty golden hour portraits featuring a kissable pumpkin, a serious new trend, a helpful wooden post, and a fall unicorn.

Onward to the pictures!Β

Hello, my friends!

Thank you all so much for entering the giveaway in my last post! I’m excited to announce the winner. πŸ™‚ But first, a little about this post…

Fields & Forests Sisters Photoshoot {Part 2}

Part two of last week’s sisters photoshoot includes blurry smiles, a pocket full of posies, a forest-made flower crown, and the fluffy vine that’s eating our porch. πŸ˜› It also includes, you know, Megan and I – we’re the sisters part of the sisters photoshoot thing.

As always, Megan took the photos of me and I took the photos of her as well as editing all the pictures you see in this post. Alright, that should be enough information to get started. Let’s… get started!

Fields & Forests Sisters Photoshoot {Part 1}

Hello, my friends!

Remember sisters photoshoots? It’s only been, like… a year since we did one! πŸ˜› Megan and I finally got around to taking more portraits and I’m quite pleased with how they turned out. As usual, Megan took all the pictures of me and I took all the pictures of her + edited all the photos I used. We got so many good ones that I decided to post the photoshoot in two parts. This is mostly the “fields” portion. Stay tuned for part 2 next week with some forest pictures! πŸ™‚

I hope you guys enjoy scrolling through these photos as much as we enjoyed taking them!

Heidi & Shayne {Wedding Photography!}

Hello, my friends!

Back in May, I had the privilege of second-shooting a friend’s wedding! This was my first time photographing a wedding and phew, it was a lot. I couldn’t have asked for a better couple than Heidi and Shayne for my first time, though. Their sweet spirits, Christ-like love, and laid-back demeanors shone strong the entire day despite the excitement and stress I’m sure they were dealing with.

I feel like I should say, “Heidi and Shayne, enjoy some of my favorites from your special day!” But this isn’t a wedding blog, so… I guess whoever’s reading this, enjoy some pictures of my friends getting married! This post features the sweetest couple, a plastic bug, a mysterious water bottle, a vintage car, and some of my favorite pictures I’ve ever taken.

Ready? Set? Go!

Etcetera #15 {Doughnut Making, a Spring Festival, and Old Hotels}

Hello, my friends!

Get ready for a LOT of pictures today because I haven’t done one of these miscellaneous photography posts in five months! I still haven’t shared small adventures from way back in December, like making doughnuts and going on a rather spontaneous road-trip. Not to mention more recent events like a spring festival our friends put on with barn dancing and competitions and lots of fun memories. And, of course, plenty of pretty nature and landscape photos as usual. πŸ™‚

Enjoy this mixed-up collections of moments from the past half year!

Birthday Explorations {a Green Truck Ride}

Hello, my friends!

Last week for my birthday, I chose to go on a Green Truck Ride around the farm and it was PERFECT, ahh! “Green truck rides” are kinda a lost tradition in our family. Dad has this vintage, mint-green Chevy truck he built that’s perfect for exploring our land in, but for the past four or five years it’s been out of repair. He finally fixed it up and we got to drive around at golden hour in perfect weather for my 21st birthday! It was an absolutely lovely evening.

Enjoy some happy photos of a delightfully flower-lined path, a soggy dog, and golden hour goodness.
