This fall, one of my photography clients suggested that we do our shoot at Riverview Farm in Plainfield, NH. I had never been there before and am always excited to scope out some new spots to shoot. Little did I know it was going to be so beautiful, I would have to bring my kids back there the very next day to spend an afternoon ourselves!
We had already done our apple picking for the season, so this day was all about fun. We explored the beautiful farm and all its end-of-season glory, including a stop in the pumpkin patch to introduce my littlest pumpkin to one up close and personal.
Nothing like having a baby around to remind you of the wonder in all things! Even the texture of a pumpkin stem (and the amusement of watching her try to eat it).
After the pumpkin patch, we explored a very impressive corn maze. Jax took charge and actually led us through with barely any problems. We are definitely going back next year (but I think I’ll put the baby in the Ergo–it was quite a walk!). The big kids loved being explorers and taking charge of our adventure.
Forced photo hug.
Now I look out the window at the grays and browns of early winter and wish for the bright warmth of fall! Trying to count my blessings and focus on the upcoming holidays, rather than the months of cold ahead! Looking at these photos helps warm my heart–but doesn’t help my longing for a vacation!
