Here’s what we have been up to lately.
I got a new man in my life. I know it is too soon, but one look into his hazel eyes and I was captivated.
Always happy to see me, listens intently and eats my hairbrushes.
Played photographer to the marriage of some dear friends who have touched my life beyond compare. As a couple they have shown me grace and love through suffering. As a family they have shown me strength in faith. Many times as I looked through my camera, my breath caught at the power of their connection and love that was so apparent. The whole family brought me under their wing long ago and many times I have found myself held up in my darker days by their belief in me.
Worked with the girls on channeling their inner farm women (before city life claims them too much) Learning that grass stains on your feet is better than a pedicure any day. Discovering that a good romp in the sandbox beats the snot out of a scented bubble bath.
Had a photo shoot with one of my favorite little girls plus a wonderful cookout with her parents (The horses were at her place) It was great to sit and talk in the company of this family. To be with those who understand me, love me and know what I am going through some days. Watching our children running as free as the horses; kicking up their heels as the open spaces.
More horses cause you know I can’t get enough of horse photography (Especially after I heard my “life” song: Wild Horses by Natasha Bedington)
“All I want is the wind in my hair
To face the fear but not feel scared
wild horses I wanna be like you
going closer to the wind, I’ll run free too
Wish I could recklessly love like I’m longing to
I wanna run with the wild horses
Run with the wild horses
I see the girl I wanna be
Riding bare-back, care-free
Along the shore
If only that someone was me
Jumping head-first, head-long
Without a thought
To act and damn the consequence
How I wish it could be that easy
But fear surrounds me like a fence
I wanna break free”
