When my 2nd cousin, Missy approached me about taking her son, Wyatt's senior pictures I was so honored. But when we started talking about details I find out she also wanted to do family pictures... in downtown SMITHVILLE, wowza! I was thrilled to say the least. Any Sandra Bullock fan knows that Smithville, Texas is where Hope Floats was filmed!! Fangirl moment... I digress.
Wyatt is a senior, class of 2014. He competes in rodeos and loves his animals. Especially his 3 legged pup, Peg. To capture the importance of his rodeo background, Wyatt drove me out to his dad's property where he keeps his horses. I got to meet W (yes, as in George W.) who got some face time in front of my camera. I even got to see the wild ones running amok in the pasture, which I'll admit, startled me for a moment (someone has been in the city too long...)
After some one-on-one time with Wyatt out in the pasture, we drove downtown and met his mom, Missy and younger sister, Abbey (who has always secretly been one of my favorite people, ever.) We walked around the square, then went back to their front yard, taking advantage of the last bit of gorgeous golden sunlight the day gave us. So happy to have captured some sweet moments of the three amigos. Love, love, love them. Such a fun day.
