Yesterday we went and explored more of my favorite pasture! It was so much fun.
I love finding little fungus! It's like an easter egg hunt every time I got out.
They look like little sea urchins!
I posted this photo on my Instagram! These types caterpillars are out this time of year, and they love sand plum thickets!
The blossoms smell so heavenly.
I was walking and a mourning dove flew off! We were worried it was hurt, as it wasn't flying normally. But then realized we fell for it. Mother doves often pretend to be hurt as they fly away to distract you from their nest of chicks!
They’re so ugly they’re cute!
I hope you enjoyed these photos!
This fog was amazing!
Where I live, we don't get just a whole lot of moisture, we've gone about a five month span without any measurable moisture. I was like a toddler in Disneyland, haha.
I love how fluffy the hood looks in this photo!
This is one of my first times taking pictures in fog, so it was different, but fun!
Can we just take a moment for my model? She's adorable. She's going to cut off her hair, it's going to be so different but cute!
Can you tell it was cold outside? We froze, haha!
This shot took soooo long to get! Her hair kept flipping in her face, but we had fun with it.
I really love the colors in this shoot! I'm partial to purple and earthy tones, folks. I can't not like them. It's not possible.
In photoshoots I have a tough time with bouncing light back to the subject's face sometimes (I need to learn flash, cough, cough.) I just need to get a shirt that's one big reflector, haha. Is that even a thing? Can I buy a shirt that's shiny metallic gold? That'd be so helpful, lol. You want to talk about people staring at you while just taking photos in public, having that shirt would be like having that annoying beeper on golf carts. Everyone and their dog would be staring at you.
I almost wish it was still cold out so we could wear layers still. Almost. That's one of the only things I enjoy about Winter, aside from the shorter days and snow (when we get snow.)
This has to be my favorite photo from the shoot!
Thank you so much for checking out my blog post! If you came from here, go to my recent on Instagram and comment a snowflake (❄️) emoji!
It's been awhile since I've last posted, and I've missed it a lot! Life has been so crazy. Even though I took a break from the blog, I haven't stopped taking pictures. I've begun taking a lot more portraits of people. I'm happy that I've expanded my niche. I have really started to enjoy it!
About a week ago, one of my dear friends and I decided to do a shoot with her goat!
He was her bottle baby that she has raised into a sassy fluff ball of personality.
If he could talk, we would've had an earful of complaints, on how there was a frightening lack of treats on the photoshoot, when in reality there was more than enough.
He's basically just a big dog. Haha, fun fact, I was just told that he prefers brown paper napkins from McDonald's as his snack!
Bottle babies get very attached to the people who care for them, and you can definitely tell that, that is his momma.
I love taking pictures with animals! They give a very natural, candid, look to photos. No matter how hard you try, you will most likely not come out with a posed photo. They will do their own thing, whether you like it or not. So you might as well go with a loose idea of what you want, and just capture what happens, at least when a stubborn goat is involved, haha. And in all honesty, who wants a posed picture when you can have candid shots that show emotion and their natural interactions? This is, of course, just partaining to certain shoots. There are shoots where you want to have more styled photos.
They definitely love each other, so their interactions were very fun to capture.
I could not get over how cute they were while editing these. Their happiness is infectious!
This was the first shoot we got to have in the golden hour! The lighting was perfect, and I absolutely loved this old tin barn.
That's a wrap folks. I hope you enjoy these photos as much as we do! It was a blast.
Don't forget to check out the posts below!
Some photos from a few years ago. I was particularly proud of them at the time! Lol, Ike did not like the bubbles, at all .
Thanks for checking out this post!
