My son's preschool is surrounded by open acres filled with trees, wildflowers, and grazing cows. I often brainstorm how I can make photos work there seeing as we are directly up against barbed wire fence keeping those grazing cows from entering the parking lot! A couple weeks ago Thomas and I went exploring to kill time before picking up the big boys and that is where we found our hidden golden spot. It is up on a small hill that looks over an even smaller valley and another small hill. However, with a little creative angling, while hiding the parking lot behind some trees, it looks like we have been transported to a beautiful country side somewhere far away from Flower Mound, Texas. Today was Cowboy Day so it was prime time for taking photos of sweet Thomas before school started. I believe these photos prove you can find beauty in random locations, including spots overlooking a parking lot.
If this location is what you had in mind for family photos, and close to home, contact me soon to get on my calendar!
When I first met with Tracy, she had won an auction in which I had donated a Mom & Her Camera class lesson. She emailed asking to switch to a photo session instead and upon further discussion she said one of her family's new hobbies is to go shoot bows and arrows together. What a super cool thing to do together, right?! And I was thrilled to get to capture this activity for them so they can preserve the memories that is unique to their family. As we walked and talked at Cinnamon Creek Ranch (which was also super cool and I can't wait to take my boys now!), I asked if they had ever done real hunting with their bows and arrows. Dad said he hadn't in a while, but he remembered hunting with his dad when he was younger. He also said if is son was showing interest in it now, that he wanted to continue to enhance that so he could have that same quality time with his son that he did with his dad. What a sweet sentiment and you can immediately see the connection they had during their time practicing their archery. Thank you, Tracy, for letting me tag along with the fam on this fun activity!
