Meet Me at the Farm

The Christmas Tree Farm that is.  I love visiting this family farm in Easton every year.  It is familiar, yet I always find new places, little nooks, that make it feel new at the same time.  Last month I did a few days of mini sessions at the farm and I had the pleasure of seeing some familiar faces.  We had beautiful weather and got to try out some of the new spots I want to share with you.

Let’s start at the dock.  This farm has so much more to offer than just evergreens.  The pond and dock are perfect to keep the kids engaged and add some interest to the setting.  There are usually ducks at the pond, sometimes even a cormorant makes an appearance.  Only problem we had that day was that the dog would not step foot on the dock for a family photo.  Nope.  Not happening.  

Even in full sun the dock has something special to offer as well as the grasses nearby.

This rock is a special place to me.  I have been eyeing this rock for years, waiting for the right time.  In prior years there was always an old oak tree nearby that was perfect for some shade and its bark added texture to my photos.  This year that oak tree came down in a storm.  I almost cried a little when I saw this (I might like trees more than the average person).  I stood on the stump where it once stood.  Then I turned and looked around from a new vantage point.  One that had never been possible until now.  The rock and its tree lined background were perfect.  This was the year.  [More photos on this rock in FB/IG posts this week]

There are of course lots of Christmas trees.  Rows and rows.  But I also really like the stone walls throughout the farm.  They add something extra and make the whole place feel cozier somehow.

The amazing owners of the farm made a HUGE, beautiful wreath this year just for us!  Hung on their red barn, it is perfect for that holiday feel.  Thank you so much!  I feel grateful to have such a great relationship with this farm year after year.  It was a great weekend with perfect weather, and wonderful seeing friends old and new.
