5 Tips For Dressing For Family Photos

5 Tips For Dressing For Family Photos

So you finally scheduled a photo session for your little family! Good for you! Now, what will everyone wear?! (insert overwhelmed emoji) The days of matching outfits have come and gone! Even I fell victim to the all-denim 90’s family portrait. I would share it with you but it’s somehow gone missing! 😉  I’ve come up […]

Spying On The New Neighbors

Spying On The New Neighbors

Sometimes I work from our dining room table. It’s a great place to work other than the distractions out my window. We have a lot of busy bird-neighbors!  I couldn’t help but watch this one couple. I tried my best to snap some photos of them to tell their story.  One bird perched on the old […]

Foggy Farm Photos & Recent Storms

Foggy Farm Photos & Recent Storms

Recent Storms Mother Nature sure has been making me jumpy these past few days. Over this past weekend we had a tornado touch down about two miles from our home. It tore through one home and took several barns in our neighborhood. Thank God everyone was okay despite the fact that the storm came without […]

A Tiny Tea Party Photoshoot

A Tiny Tea Party Photoshoot

I’ve been editing these photos for what feels like decades. The more mobile Ren becomes the faster my days seem to fly! One second I’m focused on my computer screen, the next I catch my son rolling across the floor in his walker with a house plant uprooted in his hands! Laundry is beeping, husband […]

From The Garden: Bountiful Blessings

From The Garden: Bountiful Blessings

I talk about it all the time but I can’t help but think how much this “homestead” has been a blessing to us. We didn’t buy this land for the house, yard or garden but those things have surprisingly become the things that make this our home. It’s almost as if this place found us. […]

April Showers Bring May Flowers

All the beautiful flowers popping up around the farmhouse have reminded me of some photos I took a few weeks back.

I enjoy it […]

Farmhouse Fever

Farmhouse Fever

Check. Check. Check. Finally starting to GET THINGS DONE today! This week has been a little… odd. I worked all day on Saturday and then the Super Bowl made Sunday feel like a Saturday. AND after that mess, we had another big winter storm push through with snow and negative temps this week. Dan was […]

Lessons of the Season

Lessons of the Season

I really enjoyed the rainy weather earlier this week, although I know most farmers would love to get back into the fields to finish the harvest season. Sometimes during hot, Missouri summers it seems like the rain will never come again and when it does, I just want to watch it, smell it and take […]

Happy Fall Y’all!

Happy Fall Y’all!

Fall doesn’t technically start until Sunday but I just can’t wait any longer! It looks like fall. It smells like fall. Heck, I think it should just be FALL! Look at our corn! As you may know, I have been capturing photos of our corn throughout the summer. It still fascinates me how quickly it can […]
