Mr, Mrs & Miss Drew go apple picking | Westward Orchards Harvard MA

The Correia Family (that’s us!) went apple picking a few weeks ago.  We decided to go to the Westward Orchards not to far from us in Harvard MA.  I must admit that our trip was also to scout the location for a family session & for the Lowell Photo Shootout at the end of this month.  We had been wanting to go apple picking, but weren’t sure if we’d be able to do it.  Luckily Drew had a Friday off so we were able to go on a weekday when it wasn’t super busy!

It was a warm sunny day in October and we headed up the hill to pick some apples.  We had to walk a little bit into the orchard because the trees closest to the farmhouse didn’t have any apples on them.  For a minute I was worried that we were in the wrong orchard and weren’t going to find any apples.  Luckily we finally came across some that were low enough that Prue could pick them herself.  Then it was picking & eating time for Prue.  Since we went apple picking she has been crazy with eating apples.  She must have had 4 on the first day.  She kept swiping them from the dinning room table.  I suppose she could like worse snacks, I just don’t want her to only eat apples!Westward Orchard Westward Orchard Westward Orchard

YEAH! for apples that were at Prue’s height!  also YEAH! for Prue  actually listening to us! She went under the tree for a photo & looked at me (though only for a second).  You would think that Prue would be really good at standing still so we can take a photo, but that is the farthest from the truth.  I think she actually refuses to look at us when we are holding the camera!  We aren’t even the crazy type that try to put her into silly sets & poses, we just want her to look at us & she refuses to do that most of the time.

She didn’t understand that Drew needed to see in order to pick apples.  Why would she care though, she already had an apple in her hard!

I played around with editing these so they are a little more vintage & warm looking.  I thought it would be fun to do something a little different.  Let me know what you think of them.
