Another weekend family photoshoot in the books! The weather was perfect, and even though the autumn gold has mostly faded by now, there is something strangely festive and nostalgic about the simplicity of the colors of October. Tan and rich brown, cream, sage, and the almost-gold of dying grasses.
The Priors own Dakota Greens, the greenhouse where my sister Sarah has worked for the last year and a half. It was fun to get to know them a little bit this afternoon. We took pictures at Stockade Lake, and then drove a few miles into the park and pulled off to the side of the road. Beautiful rock outcroppings, waist-high grasses, and shoulder-high cattails are the textures of autumn. Fall is a wonderful time of year.
