Pumpkin Patch Kinda Day

I don’t know about you but Fall is my favorite season! The colors, the sounds, the smells and the cool air all signal a closing of another year. For us in the Pacific Northwest it is a time we cherish before starting our 6-month rain hibernation

Yesterday was a rare treat because I got to tag along with some beautiful families and share in the simple joy of finding the perfect pumpkin. We found the coolest place called Bella Organic Farm (www.bellaorganicfarm.com) out on Sauvie Island. Be sure to put it on your to-do-list if you’ve never visited before. The hayrides, haunted corn maze, pumpkin patch, petting farm and the Adults Beer Garden promises fun for everyone. Even my 19-year-old became child like for the day.

For me it was a great day because I got to play with my new camera (Nikon D7100) and lens. My hope for the day was to capture candid shots of the kiddos. My friend Julie  (Instagram: jul_of_minnesota) spent time this summer teaching me how to use a long lens. Her tricks and techniques allowed me to fade in the background and document the day without being too intrusive. Thank you again Gigi for inviting me along…it was so much fun!

Too many choices creates a sit down moment.

Favorite photo of the day. I love when kiddos don't know I see them.

    Kyla! This is such a fantastic idea!! So happy for the new creative space in your life and online. The photography is breathtaking. The narrative is lovely…heartfelt and generous.
    I just saw your note about sharing some photography tips but honestly I didn’t think I was showing you much that would be helpful. You are too kind.
