Family Portraits | Can We Say Adorable?

I had the pleasure taking photos of this adorable family this weekend. Aren’t they about as photogenic as you can get?  Three-year-old Tynlie is about as cute and fun as they come (but don’t tell her that). And you can’t help but want to squeeze 7-month-old Wyatt with those adorable cheeks and big eyes. I loved the farmland – the hay bales, the silo, the barn … so serene.

Project 52 Week 4: Survival of the Fittest

We passed by lots of open fields driving to Topeka, Kansas this weekend, as I’m sure you can imagine. I’d seen this silo with a tree growing out of it several times in the past, so I had big plans to stop and take photos. I finally decided to tell my husband about these plans after we got on the road. I guess he’s used to my odd photography requests by now, because he didn’t think twice about it. When we approached the silo, he graciously pulled off the highway and even trudged through a dead corn field with me. I seem to pick the coldest, windiest days to take photos, and Saturday was no exception. But I think the end result was worth it.

A tree growing out of a silo is truly a sign of survival. It’s always interesting to see where trees will grow.
