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 there... I'm Sierra!

I am from a family of all girls. I always keep a journal. John & I were married back in 2013. It was a miracle then & it is now. We had three kids between Oct 2014 & August 2018 : Joslyn Shea, J.D., and Jesse Lee. We remodeled two houses & moved three times in our first 5 years. I grew up in Missouri, but was transplanted to South Dakota. I am working on my masters at Sioux Falls Seminary as of 6.1.19.

I started Sierra Shea & Co. as a space to curate encouragement for all women toward creative, redemptive lives as daughters of the King of Kings.
