Fall Photoshoot!

Standard

Hiya, people! ๐Ÿ˜‰

For the last while I have been trying to find a good day for a Fall photoshoot, but each day has been too cloudy and rainy… Yesterday afternoon it was finally clear enough to get some good pictures!

I started out with a few pictures taken at our house.

And, I just got some cool new shoes, which I love, so…. Consequently, there are now quite a few pictures taken of them. But, I won’t bore you with all of them. Just three of them. XD

After that, I wanted to drive to an apple orchard nearby to take some pictures there. So I went and took my sister, Gracie, with me! ๐Ÿ™‚

Little Brother Photoshoot

Standard

Hey guys! So, I know I haven’t done very many photography posts lately, but that’s because I honestly haven’t been taking very many pictures for a while. It’s because I’ve had… well, what you might call the photographers’ version of Writer’s Block. So Photographer’s Block I guess. XD um, is that a real thing? xD It should be.

Anyway, thankfully I’m getting over that now. So a few days ago I did a photoshoot of my adorable little brother James, and I love how it turned out! He is THE cutest, bestest, sweetest little bro anyone could ask for. โค โค

James, 2019, 3

Those eyes! โค

James, 2019, 8

Aww!

James, 2019, 15

I love his face in this one!

James, August 19, 2

He was laughing at his brother Philip, who was in the tree. ๐Ÿ˜‰

James, 2019, 19

James, August 19, 1

โค LOVE THIS ONE โค

He looks like he’s thinking really hard about something.

James, 2019, 4

This smile is sooo great!

James, 2019, 13

James, 2019, 14

Aw!

James, 2019, 10

Love this kid so much! โคย 

James, 2019, 18

James, 2019, 7

James, 2019, 9

Aaaaah, his blue eyes!!!!

Bonus picture:

So, during the photoshoot, I asked James to reach up into the apple tree, and pretend he was picking an apple. I did that, and Philip said, “Take a picture of me doing that!” So he reached up into the tree to pretend to pick an apple, but the apple accidentally came down in his hand. We weren’t technically supposed to pick any apple yet since they weren’t ripe, and this was his face. XD XD

IMG_2050

HAHA, isn’t that epic? XD

James and I had such fun with this photoshoot. He’s the best. โค So are all my siblings. ๐Ÿ˜‰ โค

Also, Gracie and I finally took the video for our Q&A. Sorry we took so long. More on that in the video. ๐Ÿ˜‰ I can’t wait to get that finished and edited so I can post it soon! ๐Ÿ™‚

Hope you all are having a wonderful day!

Lizzie and a friend’s dog.

We spent a looong time in the car… Like, 6 days worth of driving… Ugh! To pass the time, we listened to a lot of Jonathan Park, Brinkman Adventures, and sermons by Israel Wayne. ๐Ÿ™‚ So it wasn’t so bad. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Weย didย have a few really carsick kids though… XD

Y’all. I LOVED the South. It was sooo pretty, and I loved the people, the accent (lol!), the trees… And guys, the GREENNESS!!! ๐ŸŒณ๐ŸŒฒ๐Ÿƒย It was so beautiful! I loved it all! Except for the ticks.ย Death to all ticks. Seriously, if it hadn’t been for the ticks, I probably would have moved there. Ok, maybe not quite… ;P XD

Well, I hope you enjoyed these pictures! Keep on the look out for a video about the trip, where you can see all you just saw, and lot’s more! ๐Ÿ™‚ And also the video about our visit with Amie. (Amie’s making that one.) I can’tย waitย to see it!! :D๐Ÿ˜

See you soon! (Figuratively speaking.) ๐Ÿ˜‰
