Autumn's glow...a fall photo shoot

Monday, October 14

a few weeks ago my sister said
"katie, let's go find a field and take fall pictures!"
it was spontaneous and just plain fun. 

I didn't shower or do anything fancy, I just threw together a "fall-ish" outfit
(comprised mostly of yard sale clothing)
and together Lena and I went on a hunt for the perfect field. 

less than a mile from our parent's house we spotted a beautiful field of weeds. 
weeds...so romantic, right? 
we parked
 and ran past the very obvious "no trespassing" sign. 
little rebels, I know.
{even though the "inner-rule-followers" in us freaked out every time a car drove by! hehe}

there was so much beauty in the radiant autumn sun, it washed us in it's ruddy glow. 
we even dragged our pumpkins out there to really give it the Fall touch:) 
peeps! I forgot how heavy those suckers are! 

and in that moment with laugher and golden hues and the warmth of the sun,
it just felt good to be alive. 
and to thank God for the good things I got going in my life. 

of course we will all experience the rough and rocky at times, 
but this season is a reminder to dwell on the incredible blessings that flow down to us from the 
Father of Lights! 

He delights in us, 
and that delight in contagious! 

Happy Fall friends! 
love Katie 

{hahaha...lena will probably hate me for including this one, but I think it's hilarious!}

 {love my sister...a lot}

  1. Awww! You are both so beautiful! I love the autumn feeling of this photoshoot! So lovely! Makes me want to grab a chunky scarf, a hot cocoa, and a pumpkin to carve. My "photoshoot" was with my sisters too! It was fun because I had been stuck in my apartment after getting my wisdom teeth out and needed some fresh air and some beauty to look at, so I was very thankful to explore a bit and shoot some photos!

  6. You and your sister look a LOT alike! Beautiful photos! Frame-worthy, for sure! When I don't have my brother around, I don't have any good photographer, so I wasn't planning on linking up, but I decided that yesterday's car pictures looked definitely fall-ish with the colored leaves. So I linked up anyways...
