Apple Orchard Snapshots

June's preschool had there annual trip to the apple orchard. I was so glad to have lovely weather this year (last year it was 40 degrees, rainy, and Kendall was strapped to me in a baby carrier and snowsuit). Although, there were times I wished Kendall was strapped to me on this day we all had lots of fun. We started our day on the playground, had an informational movie/talk in a tepee, picked apples, ate apple cider doughnuts, then of course more play time. I had hoped to get some really nice portrait shots of the girls at the end of the day....you will see how that turned out. LOL. However, it was a fun day and I love spending time with my two girls (who would have ever thought I could say "my two girls":). Enjoy.


Kendall enjoying the playground.


June and her 1st bag of apples.


Kendall and her bag of apples.


Did you know the number of seeds in an apple represents the number of times the apple blossom was pollinated?


You will notice more pictures of Kendall than June. June was enjoying time with her friends, if you have visited before you know Kendall is a bit of a wild child, which left me on Kendall duty. The definition of Kendall duty: keep small girl from danger and trouble. Look below, she is heading straight for danger!


Look, even a picture of me..me and my two girls!


Yes, I let some one hold the Nikon:)

Now to the perfect photo shoot in the apple orchard....it is times like these I wonder if I can ever take pictures professionally. The setting....


The girls....


Kendall more interested in picking rotten apples off the ground and of course chewing on them...


The look from June, "Are you really making us do this today?"

So I decided the pumpkins were a better choice!


Happy Tuesday Everyone!

Thanks for looking.

Beautiful photos and beautiful girls. If you don't mind me asking, what lens did you use? I am determined to get my SLR off auto mode and am curious as what settings and lenses folks use to get such great shots like yours.

Your commentary in this post was very amusing! I consider you a professional photographer anyway if you can manage taking all these great shots while chasing a toddler. Love the shot of June with her bag of apples. How nice that you got a shot of the 3 of you and you always dress your little ones so beautifully.

Such fun! Love your black and white shot, and I did not know that about the apple seeds, very cool!

WOWOWOW! You are a GIFTED photographer. I feel like I fell into each picture, smelled the apples, felt the sticky caramel....wow. You babies are adorable!
