Mom Snaps Gorgeous Photos of Her Kids' Lives on a Farm That'll Take Your Breath Away
Danielle Awwad, a photographer and mom of three who lives on a hay farm with her family, is making us want to pack up our things and move in with them. The mom's stunning photos of her kids' lives around the farm are so breathtakingly beautiful, you would never believe that 98 percent of them are completely candid. Thanks to a high shutter speed and a long-focus lens, Danielle is able to capture her kids — Allie, 6, SJ, 4, and Jake, 3 — in the moment, whether they're jumping in puddles, petting cows, picking flowers, or interacting with one of their adorable cats, all named after fruits.
"I photograph my images using a long focal length, which allows me to step back and observe my children as they play and interact with our animals," Danielle told POPSUGAR. "Since I don't really pose my children, they don't even realize I am photographing them most of the time. If they see my camera out, they assume I am taking photos of the nature around us."
And some stunning nature, that is! When asked her favorite thing about being able to raise her kids on such a gorgeous farm, Danielle told us that "watching them explore and having an appreciation of nature and animals" is the best part. "They love the outdoors!" she added.
