State Fair Photography // 2018


Happy Monday, everyone! I hope you all had a great weekend and that you stayed safe during the hurricane! ❀ We didn’t have any serious damage beyond a lot of fallen trees/limbs, which I’m very thankful for. πŸ˜€

I took an abundance of photos when we visited theΒ state fair last year, and I was hoping to go back this year and take more photos. My family wasn’t planning on going, but then I won tickets from a raffle at the library! We finally found time to go yesterday afternoon, and we got there just in time to watch the sunset over the fair. The weather was lovely and the sunset was beautiful! I hope you enjoy the photos that I captured. πŸ™‚

We’ll begin with some fuzzy sheep. πŸ˜€ Several of my blog readers have mentioned that they find my posts more enjoyable when I narrow down my photos, so I tried to do that in this post. Let me know what you think in the comments!

This sheep looks so unimpressed…

Isn’t the soft golden light pretty? It made everything look so beautiful!

I love the shadows in this one!

The sunlight reflecting off the water was so gorgeous. ❀


I hardly ever post vertical photos because they’re so big, but I really love the reflection in this one!

This photo is one of my favorites! That ride looks terrifying. πŸ˜›

This is the first time I’ve been at the fair at night, and it was really neat. Everything was so bright and colorful!


I hope you enjoyed those photos! The fair is such an amazing place for photography, and I can’t wait to go back next year. πŸ˜€ Have you visited a fair before, and if so, what’s your favorite thing to do there?

Have a wonderful week, everyone!

Which photo was your favorite?


P.S: A couple of you already noticed, but… I updated my profile picture and you can see my face now! If you’ve been wondering what I look like, then you can visit my homepage to find out. πŸ˜‰

    1. I agree! Thanks so much, Aria! Haha, yeah, ours is quite late in the year – but if we had it in September it would still be 90 degrees. XD Thanks for sharing your favorites and for commenting! πŸ™‚

  1. Ooh, those are so gorgeous! I love riding in the sky lifts! XD Here is my favorite photo:

    I LOVE your new profile picture, your shirt matches the color of your blog design, and I think that’s super neat and really well-thought-out. πŸ˜‰

  2. AHHHH, LOVELY PICTURES. ❀ Fairs are so much fun! Those sheep are adorable, hee hee. Yes, I LOVE the golden light and the shadows! Here are a few of my favorites… (it looks like a stock photo!) (I like the rich colors in this one, and at first I thought the roofline or whatever it is on the right was someone raising their hands! XD)
    And yes, I think you did great with narrowing down the pictures but still keeping some variation! πŸ˜€ Lovely post, dear!

  3. Sunset photography is so pretty, and I’d say you’re a master of the art! πŸ™‚ We haven’t been to the fair in about three years. However, your pictures make me want to visit again! ❀

    P.S. Beautiful profile pic! πŸ˜‰

    1. YES! Oh my goodness, I totally forgot to tell you about it! I ended up buying the D7000 and it came a few days ago. I LOVE it so much – I had no idea how slow my old camera was!! I’ve been able to take photos in the dark without any noise and it focuses so much faster and better. I’m so happy with it! <3 I’ll be posting photos in a few weeks, but if you’d like to see some photos that I’ve taken with it, I posted a few on Instagram. πŸ˜€ Here’s a link:


      1. Unfortunately Insta doesn’t work on my computer but YAY THAT IS SO FABULOUS CONGRATULATIONS AND I AM SO HAPPY FOR YOU! I can’t WAIT to see the pictures, dear! And I know – I LOVE IT TOO. β™₯
