elle at the farm










elle is here at the farm. phrases like " auntie am i almost a farmer like you" and " can we go for a walk and see the horses" come out of her mouth and make it to my ears like the sweetest melodies. like in all things elle is a natural and the horses are so drawn to her . she is right in there doing it right even showing her brother the way to do things around here. the weather today went from a mild and grey morning, to a heavy snow, then the sun came out as big flakes fell and the mix of all of it with elle was just too beautiful!

Indeed, this mix is beautiful. I can't believe how pretty these photos are, Nadia. Oh, yes I can. You took them, after all! What a wonderful auntie you must be.

I totally agree with Aran.
These are so beautiful Nadia.

And a question... doesn't snow make any problem for the camera?

these photos are extraordinary. there is a story here and we want to see where it began and how it unfolds.

(not at all surprised that Mike is already cozying up to Elle:)

nadia, i realized that i have been away from here for too long. i'm sorry i didn't know about your sister--i hope she is doing ok now--and the farm looks heavenly and elle has gotten so big and through your incredible lens even prettier...
maybe next bonbon photo shoot at the farm?

These photos are so dreamy and surreal! Elle is beautiful. Is that a poncho she is wearing or a coat? It is really adorable. Do you mind if I ask where you got it?

Joie Moring said...

What a series...just great. And that knowing face...stunning. Where'd she get that cape!? I want it!!! ( info please ;) )

the red cape is from http://www.utilitycanvas.com/, it is actually mine but elle has the same in fuschia and i also have it in black and kaki. i love their line and used to carry it in my shop. they also make the best aprons ever!!

I love love LOVE these pictures! The little girl is absolutely adorable and as someone who has always adored horses, I wish I had been there...

Caroline said...

These photos make me happy... and you can get a sense that Elle has a very great spirit. My husband and I are off to his family's farm in France in JUNE... these pictures make me so excited to GO. I hope you had a wonderful holiday, and life is lovely!!! xo

Quel joli "Petit chaperon rouge" Connaissez-vous le conte de Charles Perrault ? Sarah Moon l'avait illustré avec de superbes photos. L'atmosphère de vos photos me l'a rappelé. Antonia
