Downtown with Hannah

Hannah is a good friend of mine, and guess what – she’s also a photographer! The funny thing is, we both became friends years ago, before either of us were interested in photography. Then, at around the same time, we both launched our businesses! Hannah invited me out to coffee for my birthday last week, and I very much enjoyed getting to visit with her and talk shop. 😉

All in a Day’s Work

Y’all, summer is going by WAY. TOO. FAST. I can’t handle it. Why did summer have to be so short? For us, it’s been a busy season, and a wet season. Unfortunately, it’s rained just a little TOO much. But yet, we still enjoy a bounty of good food – fruit from our orchard, apples and peaches, and veggies from the garden. Beets, onions, green beans, tomatoes, peppers, cabbage, and watermelon.

Carol and Her Boys

aria-photo-9

I met lovely Carol when I started to get facials at a nearby medical spa. Carol was one of the aestheticians and she gave me several wonderful facials. As we got to know each other, and I found out she hadn’t had family photos done in years (like TEN, seriously!), we decided she really needed some. Noah, her eldest, just finished his freshman year in college, and Ben just finished his senior year in high school. New photos were a must before any more big changes happened!

Visiting Allison

Aria 13.1I LOVE this picture of all of us ♥

Hey, y’all! Today I’ve got the rest of the pictures of our trip up to Allison’s farm. You already saw our Best Friends’ Photoshoot and their Family Photoshoot, and now here are all the pictures from some of the things we did together. We seriously had SO. MUCH. FUN. with Allison’s family. All her siblings are such great sports and patient with people who don’t know how to play games (i.e. my brother and I XD).

Family Photoshoot on the Farm

aria-photo

When we went up to Allison’s, I offered to do her family’s photos to thank them for letting us come and stay. I’m so glad I did because not only does her family have updated photos now, but I got to spend more time with them. ☺ It was SO HOT and we were all, unfortunately, dripping with sweat, but her parents and siblings were as chill as can be and were just NATURALS in front of the camera. They were the crowning glory of photo subjects!

Best Friends Photoshoot

aria-photo

Allison and I have an unusual friendship. We’re best friends, and yet we live over three hundred miles apart. “What’s so unusual about that?” you might ask. That in and of itself is not out of the ordinary; many best friends have had to move away from each other and keep up their friendship long-distance. What makes our friendship unique is that neither of us had to move away: in fact, we became best friends before we had even met each other in real life.

Growing

Much is growing on the farm! I love watching all the plants from seedlings and transplants to full-fledged fruit. This year we have so many veggies! Tomatoes, summer squash and zucchini, cabbages, broccoli, onions, watermelons, honeydew, cantaloupe, potatoes, blueberries and cucumbers to name most of them.
