Today’s post is the next installment in my personal project, “The Farm Series”.  This series is part puppy marketing images and part documentary images of Valley View Farm, a dairy farm in south-central Wisconsin and my brother-in-law’s pride and joy.  (If you missed previous installments, click the links below!) http://amylynnphotoblog.com/valley-view-farm-labs-puppy-photos-2-weeks-old/ http://amylynnphotoblog.com/the-farm-series-nankey-family-pt-2/ http://amylynnphotoblog.com/the-farm-series-puppies-part-2/ http://amylynnphotoblog.com/puppies/ This installment […]

For many, the Christmas season lends itself to reminiscing like no other.  I am no exception – I realized yesterday that it was my 7th Christmas spent with my husband’s immediate family and that it was finally starting to actually feel like Christmas.  See, Christmas has always been my favorite time of year and until […]

Two weeks ago, I had the chance to visit my sister Katie in South Carolina.  We had planned this trip months ago, even before finding out that my sister would be leaving to spend a year working at an orphanage in Tanzania, Africa. As the time approached, Hurricane Irma kept us in suspense.  We weren’t […]

Ask anyone who knew me at any point between 3rd grade and sophomore year of college and they will tell you – I was not getting married.  I just wasn’t.  My plan was to graduate from college, move to Colorado, and have lots of cats and if I got lucky, a horse or two. That […]

You guys, when I say I grew up in the woods, I’m not kidding.  This was my backyard, and I wouldn’t change a thing! Some of you know that I went home for a few days in July to visit my family.  My five days in New Hampshire were filled with quick visits with friends, […]

This past Saturday marked the first real day off I had had since February and also happened to be a gloriously sunny, breezy, warm, actually-feels-like-spring day.  The kind of day that makes me want to go plant a garden, even though past experience has taught me that that is a terrible idea that results in […]

When your brother-in-law’s dog has puppies you make time to go snuggle them.  You just do.  And maybe take a few photos here and there!  We somewhat spontaneously decided to drive over to the farm after work Saturday evening and it turned out to be a lovely evening away. Life seems much simpler when the puppies […]

As I am an introvert, writing about personal things does not come naturally and this post has been a draft on paper and in my heart for a long time! Stories, true and imagined, have fascinated me ever since I was a kid.  I was a voracious reader and my mom actually had to limit how many […]

You may have noticed that its been a tad warm lately.  I’m so thankful for little things…like completely perfect weather that we never could have planned for!  Wisconsin winters are not, as a rule, photographer friendly.  This past weekend was an exception and thankfully, Becky and I were able to take full advantage! Becky is a photographer friend […]

I’m just going to be honest.  My 2016 was positively ridiculous.  Its the year I gave up on from-scratch meals and started having our groceries delivered.  We consumed far to many chicken nuggets and my husband ran more errands (grabbing things I forgot) than he’s ever had to do in his entire life thus far.  The Chick-fil-A curbside pickup app […]
