Fall Newborn Shoot

6 Nov

I prepared for my newborn shoot by collecting a couple of pumpkins because it’s fall.  I bought the white one (and a big orange one), but the little orange ones came from my garden.

I used them for the great-nephew’s 1/2 birthday shoot.

Then I used them with the beautiful little girl’s newborn shoot.  The candy corn hat my mom made was perfect!

Then I put the baby in the pumpkin.  Seriously.  I had to.

She was perfect!

Who wore the hat better–Cookie or the baby?

After the shoot was over, the critters got to enjoy the big pumpkin.

Everyone was happy.

But I seriously need more newborn shoots.

Time for Leftovers!

8 Oct

This week was my parent-teacher conferences at work, so I am quite excited for the weekend!  I’ve missed not being home in the evenings.  And it means I haven’t done much to blog about, so here’s just some random thoughts with leftover pictures.

Bob is still struggling with getting back to his usual cranky self. He needs to come in the house and hibernate for the winter.

I really am trying to decide who to breed and who to retire and who to give a year off.  I’m pretty sure Gidget is getting a year off or retiring.  I hope the copper I gave last weekend kicks in and helps Reva and Gidget look better.  They really need it.

These two are happy to be together again.  Other than when Astra goes to get bred, they shouldn’t have to be separated again.

I am excited because I’m soon going to be doing a couple of photo shoots.  I will get to photograph a little girl!  Wish I could get my camera replaced before then, but I guess as long as my old faithful just keeps working, I’ll call it good.

Finally, just some more of the goats out in pasture.

Zinnia is still giving me a decent amount of milk.

Happy weekend!

Another Little Farm Hand

3 May

My nephew and his wife blessed us with another little farm hand. I was lucky enough to get to do a photo shoot with him.

Welcome Henry to the family!
