Cornfields in Texas are some of the most beautiful places to take photographs. I’m lucky enough to live on a farm with hundreds of acres full of them. Tall gorgeous cornstalks in the summer, then beautiful golden wheat in the fall. There’s a reason I shoot 95% of my outdoor sessions here at our farm.
Brynley celebrated her fourth birthday a couple days prior and mama wanted to be sure she captured her at this time in her life. Our goal was to illustrate Brynley’s personality in a realistic raw way, and I think we achieved just that.
I get asked all the time, “what if my child doesn’t cooperate? They hate taking pictures.” What I always tell clients is that I don’t want their family or children to feel like they are on a photo shoot. I want the kids to feel like we are just playing, having fun and I randomly have this huge black thing attached to my face occasionally. I’ve found that beauty isn’t in the photo of every person looking at the camera with a cheesy grin. It’s in those REAL moments where children looked puzzled, or dad is tossing a kiddo around and mom is snuggling and loving on her babies. Those are where the beauty lies.
Even in the details of a little girl caught up in the curiosity of what the inside of a corn stalk looks like. That my friends, is my passion and what I love to document.
Brynley’s session was one for the books!
