Memories of Home

September 17th, 2012

A senior session this last Friday took me back to my roots.  I grew up on a farm in Audubon, Iowa.  Even though I was a farm girl, I have always been a town girl at heart.  However, this last week, while taking pictures on a farm, I became a bit nostalgic.   We went into one empty building where I saw a mama cat with 2 baby kitties scurry away to hide behind a hay bale.  New life is always exciting on a farm, and my family loved to tame the new baby kittens we found in the barn.  We walked among the chickens during the session.  My chores growing up included gathering the eggs and feeding the chickens.  One thing I did not anticipate was taking pictures, such as this one, up in the haymow.  I haven’t climbed into a haymow in at least 27 years and I stuggled a bit getting up and down, reminding me that I need to work on my upper body strength.  I was reminded of the fun we had spending hours playing in our haymow growing up.  The pictures that we came up with were totally worth the workout and I am enjoying the memories that came back to me during our session!
