It’s not so easy for me to travel as it used to be. It’s harder and harder every day to leave the sweet face of my bright and sunny baby girl. But in short order, Saci and Paul flew me to Laredo when some free time popped up on their calendar. Saci’s warmth reaches through her emails and the phone, and I was so excited to meet her in person. And HELLO GORGEOUS PEOPLE. Did I mention also that every client I have this year is my favorite? What is it about people from Texas that makes me love them so??
Saci is a mother of an unusually handsome young man, Bricen. To photograph this family on their ranch that’s been in the family for 6 generations, to witness the little histories spread all through out their beautiful desert paradise was ALMOST enough to make me want to stay another day and just hang out. We spent the day, taking ridiculously wonderful pictures, collecting rocks, searching for ubiquitous arrow heads (Bricen finds boxes full on a daily basis – he is an arrowhead ninja) and petrified wood (there used to be a whole petrified FOREST on their land!!!), bird watching, and for me, just being in awe of that beautiful place, and these beautiful souls. When our time was up and Saci took me to the airport, I almost missed my flight because I was just enjoying her company so. I have one wedding left to photograph this year, and it’s Saci and Paul’s. I AM SO EXCITED. See why??
