Home again: personal {dallas, tx engagement & wedding photographer}

Tuesday, July 26, 2011

I flew home from Colorado yesterday after 17 days of being gone.  Days that were full of visiting favorite people, internship, portrait sessions, and a gorgeous wedding surrounded by the Rocky Mountains.  It was a lovely 2 & 1/2 weeks away but I was soooo happy to come home.  Last night I worked on catching up on hugs, laughter, sweet tea, tickle fights, and funny stories...I still haven't had my fill, but we're getting there.

I always plan a transition day in between getting home, and jumping right back into work.  A day to sleep in, un-pack, drink lots of sweet tea (I seriously miss it so much when I'm gone, guys...), and enjoy being back home before I hole up in my "roffice" (that is what I have decided I'm going to start calling my room that also doubles as my office) and start catching up on all the editing, blogging, and emailing that awaits me.

So that's what I'll be doing today ( + I think I might try and fit in some pool time too ;) but come back tomorrow because I'm going to be posting the my new favorite portrait session.  Not even kidding--it's so much gorgeousness.


Here's the question that I ask every time I fly...
How do they get the crops in such perfect squares and circles?!
I really would like to find the answer to that question before I die.

Much Love.

  1. Haha. When you find the answer, tell us all. They're perfect little shapes! ;) And soooo excited for the images to come tooomorrow! :) Welcome home! :)

  2. Can't wait for tomorrows pictures. :-) I don't know how they plan the fields, but I know why they use circles. It helps with the irrigation. One end of the sprinkle is in the middle and they can just rotate it around like the radius of a circle without losing much of their crop. :-)

  3. I've just discovered your blog and kinda, absolutely, adore it.

  4. I've always wondered that too! Goodness :) I'm guessing it's just how things are organized and wasn't necessarily meant to look adorable from the sky, hehehe.

  5. share the answer when you find it. ;] welcome home! ♥

  6. Ahaha... you have to ask a real country girl!! Joanna is definitely right about the sprinklers... they've got these huge ones that just automatically rotate around the center 24-7.

    And they usually plant them in circles because it's easier for the machines to make wide turns than narrow little ones. Starting from the inside, the circles just get bigger. It's wayyyyy easier.

    So now you know. And you don't have to die before finding out. =)

  7. This is incredible. Your work inspires.


Oh hey!
Thanks for taking the time to say hello, it makes my day everytime! :)
