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.
The Baska’s just got back for a Spring Break trip to Nashville–which is bursting with energy, I hope to put some images up later, we pretty much ate our way through the south (hot hot chicken)and saw some good friends. Why I bring this up is our next senior was accepted to Belmont’s school of music which we had a chance to visit and it was very impressive. He is still considering his options, but I think we may know his name in the future. Colin, a man of the arts, sings opera and is no stranger to the stage. What a fun afternoon exploring the city’s obvious landmarks (uh-huh Kauffman and #kcloves) but the back alleys as well. Wherever he ends up I hope he remembers these from his hometown. #kcnativeson
I’m really excited for Spring and everything that comes with it–a new beginning and new energy. So I’m launching March off with some 2018 graduates and first up is the stunning Audrey, senior at STA and future University of South Carolina Cocky. It’s not too late to do senior photos, it is never too late. Capitalize on this time of your life, where you are young and vibrant and I aim to make each session as unique as you are.Its a good time to get a few of the family as well…..
As we exit February, my last love post features Diane + Martin’s wedding. Both had lost their first spouses and found each other through friends. It was a simple and sweet morning wedding, that came down to the important things– faith, family and friends (oh and a really sharp top hat).Martin gave a toast that had not a dry eye in the house.
