these has to be my favorite newborn session i have ever photographed. these were taken just after my workshop in round top, texas in may at rachel ashwell’s the prairie (swoon), in the late hours of a warm texas evening. it all felt like a dream. we began the session in the farmhouse were were staying in there on the property, followed by a visit to the ranger’s lodge with lovely linens and barnwood galore as our backdrop and then headed out to the watering hole out back where we all were knee deep in warm mud, surrounded by the sound of bullfrogs and crickets beneath the setting sun. and the icing on the cake was that my tiny subject was a fresh baby i had been counting the days down to finally meeting for months (well, years really); his mama and daddy are some of my favorite people, hunter and brittney and they drove up from louisiana for the session. it was such a treat looking over these images again as i prepared to blog them as they just made me feel the same way i did on the day of the session… serene, overwhelmed with bliss and just simply grateful.
