A Family Outing: the Autumn Edition

A Family Outing: the Autumn Edition

Can you believe that October is just about done?! Neither can I. I swear I was just counting down the days until summer ended and now my favorite month is wrapping up. At the beginning of the season I was pursuing Pinterest looking for the perfect autumn to-do list. (I must have pinned at least three.)

We'd been planning a trip to a corn maze for the last few weeks, but our schedules are always all over the place. We finally had a day—not to hot, not to cold—where we could spend the afternoon at Skelly's, an incredibly well known farm market complete with not one, but two corn mazes!, a pumpkin patch, warm drinks, and absolutely scrumptious apple cider donuts.

Hailey + Shaylee

One a warm afternoon, just as the sun was setting into golden hour, I met Hailey and her adorable daughter, Shaylee at her apartment. A quick, five-minute drive took us to an open field just outside of Firth, Idaho where we had planned to have their session. As most children would, Shaylee just couldn't wait to kick off her shoes and run through the tall grasses, the mud not really bothering her. Minus the small swarms of insects flying around, it was a perfect day. 

I've known Hailey since we began working together at a local feed and supply store about three years ago. She is one of the most compassionate women you will ever meet and her love for Shaylee knows no limits. What I loved most about this session was the fact that many of these moments were 100% candid. There was, of course, the occasional comment from the photographer to "turn this way" or "tilt your chin, please" but for the most part, it was a matter of keeping up with Shaylee.

Their fun, contagious spirit of adventure had us traipsing all through these fields. We're just lucky no one came by to harvest that afternoon.
