I’ve mentioned this before, but I’m kind of a naturalist. I love what nature and the world offers by shear chance more then what the computer can simulate. The perfectly imperfect wisp of hair that blows, the sun flare or light leak, the funny or weird face a baby makes that is uniquely him, or when a horse comes to the window to peak out by a barn, all of which capture the moment more then freezing the subject as a pose on a velvet couch, photoshopping out every pore or adding a fake sunset. So when Lia’s mom told me Lia was an old soul or kind of a hippie, my heart skipped. We met dawn at a very popular sunflower field and drove the back valleys of KS for what seemed like a minute. It was such a pretty midwest morning, divinely granted and uniquely Lia’s. I think these capture her grace. I want to take a moment and say what a generous place Grinter’s Sunflower farm is, they let thousands of people just explore and take photos, park and traipse through their fields.
