Oh hey, hello, hi there! Been a minute since I’ve “blogged”, going to try and be better about that!!
I can only blame myself really… March was quite possibly the busiest month I’ve ever experienced in my life. Here’s a quick rundown: my full-time job, blogger photoshoots, doctor appointments, birthday parties, a three day work trip to Arizona coupled with an allergic reaction (still have no idea to what), a newborn photoshoot, a family photoshoot, a styled photoshoot, two multi-blogger collaborations, a puppy’s veterinary appointment (that we were 3 weeks late for), more blogger photoshoots, and last but not certainly not least, “wife-ing”, “mom-ing”, and three weekends of mini sessions at the Springs Farm peach orchards. There are a ton of other things that I won’t bore you with, but that’s the 30,000-foot overview. Needless to say, there was A LOT of coffee consumed in March and admittedly, I overdid it.
That being said, now that I have time to reflect on the month – I had SO MUCH fun!! I got to spend time with my OG blogger babes, meet a ton of new people, and hung out with some of the cutest families for my peach mini sessions, thus prompting my blog post!
Springs Farm is in Fort Mill, SC and they have the most beautiful (and working) peach orchards, where families literally flock to have photos done. As with anything in Mother Nature, it is a guessing game and the blooms are only around for 2-3 weeks, making the window for error very, very small. Truth be told, I had no idea what I was in for! I knew it was a big deal, but man – it was a BIG DEAL. The orchards were mostly quiet during the day and exploded with families and photographers around “golden hour”, which got interesting to say the least! I held sessions for three days over two weekends and photographed so many sweet families!
These sessions challenged me and pushed me outside of my comfort zone. I’m talking temper tantrums, sunburn, dodging other photogs and families, and shooting in direct sunlight but I swear, they made me a better photographer. With so many great moments over those two weekends, I feel honored to share some of my favorite moments captured of these sweet families. A big thank you goes out to Springs Farm for allowing us to photograph in these beautiful orchards and my amazing families for trusting me with those fleeting moments!
An even bigger thanks goes to my hubs for holding down the household while I ran around like a mad woman all month!
Hope y’all enjoy these! Promise I’ll be back for another blog post soon!
