Just when you think you know everyone in your tight-knit small town Iowa community, up pops someone new. Amy popped up last fall when she emailed inquiring about me coming out to her and her family's rural Iowa farm to do their family photo session.
Through our interactions, we discovered that she kickboxes with my parents at the Rec Center in Dyersville, my childhood neighbors are her cousins/aunt/uncle, I dated her cousin in high school, I photograph her cousins, and the list goes on and on... We were like long-lost pals. :)
Having grown up a farm girl, photographing on farms comes really naturally to me, so I was SUPER excited for their session.
As I drove down their dusty gravel road and approached their farm, I couldn't help but be inspired by the sun beginning to set behind the cows grazing in their pasture. Luckily Amy, Bob and Libby were up for a little hike out to their pasture (being sure to avoid the cow pies, of course).
