From Orchards to Oceans

In Washington, especially in Othello, there is a plethora of apple orchards. Back in Utah, I know a popular place for taking family pictures is in the Orem orchards. I always meant to have our pictures taken there, but it never seemed to happen. Earlier this summer, my sister-in-law, Jenny, was nice enough to take some photos of our family. Lucky for us, we are surrounded by tons of crops, including apple orchards. The lighting wasn't great and the camera battery died a few minutes after we began taking pictures, but I am happy with several of the shots!

A few weeks later, we went to South Carolina (as I have talked about and well-documented). My sister took several family pictures for us while we were visiting Pawley's Island. As you can see, it is a beautiful place to be. If you are ever in South Carolina, you need to go. Unlike Myrtle Beach, the beaches are quiet and devoid of all the touristy things. It is my idea of heaven on Earth.

Yes, I am wearing the same dress in these pictures and Nathan is wearing the same shirt he always wears. What can I say? We know what we look good in :)

I love our Nikon. I am constantly grateful we bought it. We have definitely used it these past few months, and I know we will use it even more often once the twins are born.


  1. I don't know why, but both of the ones where you are all walking are my favs! I'm super jealous your sister got a picture with Eliza looking. That was not going down for me. Haha.

  2. Your photos look amazing! Yes, you'll be so glad to have them when your boys are here! Oh I can't wait to see them! :)

  3. Beautiful! Thank you for blogging so much, I love it!

  4. I don't know if I've ever seen Nathan NOT in that shirt, so a change would have been disconcerting. :) I'm with Becca, this plethora of blog posts is making life worthwhile!!
