Spring Lamb, Wildflowers and Outdoor Church

 
On a hot and humid spring day in Florida, between thunderstorms, magic happened...



Spring 2021 on the farm was a bumper crop of lambs...and 2 very special little boys needed to be bottle raised....So when you add very sweet and gentle kids to the mix and a field full of wild flowers, a once in a lifetime (never to be repeated) photo session happened.



I normal do not do photo sessions using live stock, children and animals are unpredictable. Plus these kind of session can be very stressful for the animals...But since Butter Bean the lamb is a bottle raised baby, he is very used to being handled and loved on by children well known at our farm.



With a super wet spring, the white wildflowers in the side field put on a lovely show and created the perfect location for our "Outdoor Church"



What better place to create memories, and thank the Lord for an abundance of blessings.





Psalms 23:1 - 6

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.
He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.

Through the Looking Glass - A new adventure awaits.


There was no question about this maternity session needing to having a little "Alice in Wonderland" feel to it.  We are ready to dive down the Rabbit hole hearts first, already in love.



But first as the Hatter will tell you "There is always time for tea"



"Actually, the best gift you could give her, is a live time of Adventures."

We are so excited to be counting down the days to meet this precious boy
and a new adventure to begin. 💕

Vintage Vibes

 



We had so much fun creating these images.



We took my studio light setup & knowledge, and applying it outside on location
during this workshop as I prepared for the 2021 Spring Minis the following 2 weekends.



Two gorgeous models, a precious dog and
a vintage 1967 2 door 122S Volvo from our personal collection here on the farm.



How could we not have a blast and create some super fun "Vintage Vibe Spring Time" images.




The combination of the natural and strobe lighting was so delicious,
add a super relaxed vibe with good company.



It was a great way to spend a weekend afternoon.

Hearts, Home & Horseshoe Beach



When a client invites you to step out of your comfort zone and into their world it is such a special moment. This amazing family invited me to explore and get a small glimpse of their home and island life that they love.



As the fog rolled in off the Gulf of Mexico at 3.30 in the afternoon, a still and sweet calmness settled around us.


Though we did not capture the "sunset" light we had planned for, instead a lovely softness to the light that gave the images a truly tranquil quality that I love.



After the beach we made our way towards the marina but stopped next to the canal to capture just a few more tender moments before the light completely faded and another day ended at the edge of the Gulf of  Mexico.



Thank you to the McCall Family for this unique opportunity to experience your little hometown of Horseshoe Beach through the eyes and heart of your family.
