Peach Picking!

I’d never been peach picking before.  In fact, I wasn’t sure if peaches grew on bushes or trees. I really had no idea.  (They grow on trees for those of you who also didn’t know!)  Katie and I had talked about having a peach picking date to get some fun pictures of her kids and some peaches all in one trip!  We met in the morning when the light would be great and the temperature wouldn’t be full blast yet and we had so much fun.  Before long, the kids were in the trees, picking peaches and tasting a few with the result of some juicy goodness running down their arms.  I loved it!  It was a perfect summer-time session.

The peach on the right made me think of Jasmine Star‘s orange tree and how she would practice backlighting in her yard when she was getting started :-)

Oh my goodness, Ellie.  You are adorable!

Seriously, if you want some amazing peaches, Fischer’s Orchard will have them through August.

Ellie might also be the strongest kid I know.  That basket had at least 10 peaches in it and she was still picking it up!

Oh morning light, how I love thee.

A picture of the five of them… because Katie is expecting :-)

Thank you guys for introducing me to peach picking!!  You better believe I’ll be back before the end of the summer.   I hope your cobblers and jam turned out amazingly delicious.  If you need a taste tester, I’m available.

This is the recipe that Katie uses (she told me this wasn’t “hers” but that ones from friends and online are very similar)

Peach Cobbler
(Make sure to try some peaches along each stage, picking to oven, to make sure they’re good)
2c chopped peaches and juice (adjust depending on your desired peach to cobbler ratio)
1c flour
1c sugar (I mix regular and brown)
1/4 t salt
2 t baking powder
1 c milk
Melt 1 stick butter in the pan
Mix all the rest (except peaches) and pour into the middle
Spoon peaches and juice around
Bake @ 400 ~40 min.
She also recommends doubling or tripling and never serving without ice cream (I fully support this).

Happy Monday everyone!

Emily is 1! | Greenville Children’s Photographer | Furman University

The thing I love most about photographing children is watching them grow up!  And I realize that it happens quickly, but when you only see them once every three or six months… they REALLY grow up fast!  And I just can’t believe Emily is a year old already.  And oh my goodness, she’s like a little baby doll!  You can’t help but want to pick her up and snuggle and cuddle with her.  And that smile… with those blue eyes… :-)  Well, she’s just adorable.

Emily, I had so much fun following your curious little self around parts of Furman.  I loved watching you explore and wonder as you wandered.  I also love how much your cousins, your aunt, and your parents love and adore you.  You are one precious little girl!

I love when kids will look straight up into my camera.  Just love it :-)

And Emily is really great at it!

I wish I could know what’s going through her mind.

It was in Furman’s Rose Garden that I fell in love with this little girl all over again!

Gah!  So sweet!

I’ve never read The Secret Garden, but I feel like these next few pictures would fit right in.

I love love love, Furman’s Rose Garden.  Like, love it.  Especially in the summer when the roses are in bloom.
It also reminds me of camp when I was a counselor as a teenager :-)

One last outfit and one last location.

Oh my heavens… Emily, your baby blues are to die for!

She’s already working on her model face!  Love it!

But her smile just melts my heart :-)

Happy first birthday, little one!

I think the last one is my absolute favorite! In black and white definitely!

So Blessed

It’s days like today that I realize how incredibly lucky and blessed I am.  It’s days like today, when we have nothing on our agenda but what we want to have there, that I realized how blessed I am.  I hope we never take for granted the freedoms that we have and those who have risked and given our lives so that we can enjoy days like today.

Happy 4th of July to you all.  Be safe, be happy, be thankful.
