It was cloudy and chilly; a typical fall day, as we rode with the windows down past miles and miles of cornfields to the orchard.
This farm was MASSIVE. Acres of apples, pumpkin patches, and the smell of kettle corn and hot dogs…my heaven.
Not to mention it's the beginning of baking season and the holidays are approaching. Sweets are on my mind 24/7, and how many pumpkins I need to get to carve, or what kind of Halloween candy I should buy..(or should I just make it instead??) So when we got to the orchard and I saw all of those apples, I was so happy I could explode!
My stomach was also in knots because I was taking my camera out of my safe little apartment for the first time to practice taking photos. As much as I'm always dying to capture new adventures, I never have the time to look at every button, figure out exactly what it does in correlation with the rest, and not be confused when I look at something I want to take a darn picture of. So as a result, I haven't been happy with my post pictures, and I've become really frustrated with my lack of skill behind the camera.
But Dan forced me to suck it up and take the time to try this weekend, and I'm glad he did because I got to capture the first few moments of fall! (He snuck in a few photos too).
It's inspired me so much with the help of Dan's encouragement, that this is going to kick start my new project: 365 Days in Photos!
On top of the weekly recipes I share with you guys, I will also be posting a new photo everyday here and on Instagram, documenting life's moments both big and small, starting October 1st! I wanted to create a challenge for myself so that I could hone my skills, and share a little more of my everyday life with you guys!
If any of you want to join in, PLEASE PLEASE DO! I would LOVE to see what's going on in your lives and be inspired by your journey! Upload them to Instagram with the hash tag #bakeandshoot and we'll get to see each others progression!
Can't wait to start this with you guys! Happy photographing!
