in the green and yellow || portraits




When the leaves are changing, all you want to do is go stand under a tree and stare up at a kaleidoscopic canvas of greens and yellows and oranges. It sounds cliche, but I really do love this Fall-ish time of year. Desolate spots in town are now transformed by the blushes on the sidewalk trees, and raking up the fallen leaves is a chore I'll never complain of.

Yesterday I proposed--out of the blue, as it usually goes--to Olivia that I grab the camera, she don a dress and curl her hair, and we go down the driveway and do a photo shoot. On a whim, just like that.

And so we went to the yellow and green trees at the end of the field, as the rain hushed for a moment and the overcast skies churned like cotton.

Here is our work. Enjoy.
