The Prouty family in Montana!

You may remember –> this <– post from earlier in 2012!

If you are at all familiar with this beautiful family, you will know that they sold their house and all their belongings in southern California and hit the road this spring in their 1950 Spartanette trailer! Along with thousands of other instagram followers, I have thoroughly enjoyed their adventure through Joy’s amazing photography! We just happened to be travelling through Montana at the same time this summer and I spent a lovely weekend with Joy & Donny, their 4 gorgeous children, and a stray dog! hehe

I could easily write a novel about this family and my sweet friend Joy but I’ll just let the pictures tell their loving story!

Joy’s taste for decor is so amazing. I love her style and free spirit which has been passed on to her children!

We danced, ran and picked flowers in the golden sunlight in the woods in Montana… sigh!

We ended the evening in the trailer; reading, jumping on the bed, and snuggling.

Joy my friend, you are so blessed but I’m sure you already knew that. A very gentle, supportive husband and 4 beautiful, loving, and sometimes wild (hehe) healthy children! Thank you for allowing me into your humble home on the road and sharing a weekend laughing and chasing each other’s crazy children! Such sweet memories were made.

Donny & Joy have since settled into a home in Washington state! And I can’t wait to visit and play again.

    rosie. they are magical and perfect and such a dose of beauty to my heart. thank you for taking such amazing photos of my family. there is something so special about seeing the story in it’s entirety. i am living it, and it seems always long and weary and just going through the motions… trying to keep afloat. but to step back and see my family here, it is stunning. now that we are settling, our trailer sits outside here, torn apart with things pulled out from when we got in the accident, things left in, half a life left there out in the cold. i have plans for the happy space. but how quickly i had forgotten the magic in details of that place and the journey that brought us here. thank you for capturing it while we were living it to the fullest. these may be the most FULL photographs of our lives. we will look back on them and remember that we went after a very big dream. thank you for seeing my family not only as a photographer and an artist, but as someone who loves us. nothing much compares to that. thank you, friend.

    wow! Your work is so light and airy, but filled with so much warmth and love. I am truly inspired. I’m so glad that I was brought here through my love and following of Joy. I’m sure that I will now spend the rest of the night browsing your site and soaking in all the beautiful inspiration! Great job to both ladies, Rosie for the beautiful work, and Joy for the beautiful family.
