“You’ve got your getaway and I’ve got mine….”~Wade Bowen
It’s funny what the definition of “home” becomes to you as you grow older and life happens. When I left Texas 8 years ago, I cried and cried because I was leaving “home.” Ironically, leaving Mississippi to come back to Texas has been just as emotional. It’s never easy to leave behind your friends and your routine, and for me my established business. Since moving here I’ve been in sort of a “funk.” I’ve felt uninspired and haven’t picked up my camera much.
When I start to feel this way, I have to get out and create and visit places I love or find new places and create art. So yesterday I drove around my favorite part of Texas and shared it with my daughter and it was exactly what my soul needed. It’s been a long time since I’ve been to this spot. About 10 years ago, my husband and I had our engagement pictures taken here and I used to regularly drive here in the spring to capture the wildflowers. So when I turned down the old, familiar road, it was like new life was breathed right back into me. My daughter and I had an impromptu photoshoot and it was perfect and magical and I’m excited to share it with the world. I can not wait to capture moments like this for families or couples here in Texas. Look at that amazing, evening light!
