Schyler recently came to visit us in South Dakota. For one whole week. It was epic. Naturally, she took quite a few pictures while she visited. I wanted to share the photos she took during her trip. This is already the third installment of photos from The Barefoot Photographer. So far, we’ve featured her shots of spring, summer and now her trip to South Dakota! DSCN4126I wrote a teeny, little poem inspired by her photo series. It is intertwined with her collection in place of formal captions. Sometimes, just a few words suffice.

Hey, I’m Sierra Shea! I am so glad you are here. 

Where do I start with writing to introduce this blog? At the beginning, I suppose: I’ve been writing on various platforms online since 2013. I started blogging shortly after moving to South Dakota.

I am a mother and a maker at heart. I’m so grateful to be married to John and mother of three: Joslyn, J.D. and Jesse.

I am a self-taught decorator and designer. I am a brand new shepherdess and a Spiritual Director.

I love living in South Dakota, even though the winters & the wind can be a near-daily struggle.

Blogging is a grounding force in my life and it helps get me out of my head, unstuck and moving in the directions I always hoped I’d be going!
