Everyday Stories | Siebert | April 27, 2016

For the past month, I've been taking an online photography workshop called "The Documentary Approach" through Click Photo School.  I've loved the class and it's given me freedom to shoot how I want to shoot and has resulted in some of my favorite photos. 

For our last assignment, we were to shoot a "session" for someone else. A few friends invited me into their homes and life, and I chose to document the Sieberts as they did their evening chores.

I've known this family for 20 years (that sounds so crazy!  Their daughter and I were best friends in junior/senior high school) and it was super fun to follow them around for a few hours and document what they do every day.  (To say the least, I could not raise cattle. Wow.)

So, on a cold, windy, almost-rainy evening (seriously, it was the end of April...I really hoped for 70 degrees and sunshine!), I joined Meghan, her husband Kendall, their little girl, and Meghan's father-in-law Kim as they completed their evening chores.

I got a lesson in rounding up cattle, sorting cattle, breeding heifers and cows, and treating sick calves. I hope you enjoy these pictures as much as I did taking them!
