February was a dandy, let me tell you. We live on the western side of Oregon, which rarely gets snow (we love to drive to it a mere one hour away!). But this February’s snowfall was one for the records (80+ years). The beginning of the month we got a few inches, and the end we got a couple of feet. I think we maybe had one week without snowfall on the ground at my house (and we’re still digging out and assessing damage/fallen trees from the late storm). This first set of photos is from the first snowfall, which was not much at all. To say the girls enjoyed it is an understatement.
This second set of photos was actually taken during the late snowstorm, where we didn’t leave the house (couldn’t leave the house!) for nearly a week. We had no power, water, or cell service. When I wasn’t outside building forts with the kids or melting snow on the woodstove, I spent my time indoors reading or freelensing my animals who were also having a bit of cabin fever, haha.
I’m giggling at the next couple of photos, as our rescue (foster fail) daisy is not very photogenic. She also hated every minute of the snow. Yes, she is a dog.

Beautiful freelensing, all that lovely blur and bokeh – and the snow looks like so much fun!
Oh, these photos had me smiling and giggling (sorry Daisy!). I was looking forward to your snow photos as I knew they would look quite magical, but seeing the girls’ faces was the best. I’m not actually sure if they were enjoying the snow or fed up by that point, but no matter what, what an incredible experience for them. How nice it gave you the opportunity to slow down, practice freelensing and read too.
There i such magic in these photos April, and that light xx
