I'm a huge fan of Lea's work, so I was excited when I saw her submission come in. I love how Portra 400's punchy colors enhanced the pops of color throughout this set, from the bright boots, and the reds in the tractor and chickens. And I really want a baby goat. Another farmhouse scene for the win!
In Lea's words:
"I photographed this sweet family about a month ago. They live in the same little North Carolina town as I do, and have the most adorable farmhouse and homestead that they have been restoring and enjoying for the last year or so. Three boys including a set of twins, chickens, dogs, goats, and the occasional frog or turtle caught in their pond. :) I showed up shortly after sunrise to enjoy that nice warm light before the heat of the day took over. Everyone was so laid back and relaxed, and we just had a blast exploring each and every nook of their homestead! My family sessions typically only last about an hour, but this one easily hit the 2-hour mark, and I think I could have stayed even longer just soaking it all in and taking even more photos! There was just so much love and positive energy... and what's not to love about photographing chickens and goats with film!?"
