We trekked out to a new spot in the field at Alvis Farms that I hadn’t used before, and there was a perfect tree behind us to diffuse the sun. I loved this spot!
As I edit through the latest round of shoots this week, I have to go ahead and share a bunch from last Thursday's mini sessions at Alvis Farms LLC. Editing this sweet mom-daughter duo made my day! We had a great time out in the sunflowers--I'm doing one more set out there tomorrow while the flowers are still in bloom, and then we will just have to wait until next year to get back out :) See lots more from this mother-daughter shoot here.
If you don't know her, Caitlin is a sweet and hard-working person who loves her brother and loves caring for her cows on her family's land--she and I share a love for photography, too! I visited with her earlier this week to shoot some images of her doing what she loves. See more from the shoot on Facebook.
Last fall, I joined up with my friends at Richlands Dairy Farm in Blackstone to offer dairy farm mini sessions during their fall festival--we had so much fun that we decided to offer them again during the farm's June Family Farm Day!
I had a wonderful time shooting some images of Claire, her awesome horses, and her friend Molly. We got lucky with beautiful sunset light and a very convenient apple tree that made a perfect shooting spot. See more images from the session here.
I had the wonderful opportunity to photograph Richlands Dairy Farm in Dinwiddie County this weekend. The place is full of happy cows, happy calves, and the family's enthusiasm for sharing their passion for dairy farming with the public. Follow them (Richlands Dairy Farm on Facebook) to hear about their events and catch a glimpse of daily chores! Great people, great farm.
