Benbrook Stables, Benbrook Texas
Sweet Levi turns three and his momma said he has an incredible love for horses. After deciding that neither of us had access quickly to horses and a beautiful piece of property, she suggested Benbrook Stables. We were able to rent a horse and a trainer to make sure all went well. Levi couldn’t have been a happier boy. We walked the property with our horse and she was so kind and patient. Levi’s mom told me that he is completely infatuated with horses… and let me tell you – he was in absolute heaven. After we walked the property, we stopped for some family photos and to feed some of the horses that were already out in the pasture. It was a perfect location for some awesome family images.
Levi is three
He is all boy. Full of life. A mind of his own. A force to be reckoned with. Levi was so inquisitive and couldn’t wait to be done with me so he could feed the horses and see all of them. We may or may not have bribed him with grass to keep him focused on the task at hand. Have you ever tried to reason with a three year old and get them to sit still for .5 seconds?? No? Well let me tell you, it’s kinda like asking a the wind to not blow. Three year olds will do what they want – when they want – and how they want. This age is SUPER fun to photograph – because honestly, you just never know what you are going to get from them. Levi kept me on my toes, but he gave me some fantastic images as well. We had so much fun and I’m pretty certain we all slept really well that night.
We are family
While the main focus of the session was for Levi and his birthday pictures, we went ahead and snuck in some family pictures. If you know me, or have followed me for very long – you will know that I don’t do boring, sit still and smile pictures very well. I want my families laughing, moving, loving each other. It’s the emotions that are given when you ask everyone to snuggle in, or the laughter that bursts out of kids when you ask them who can laugh the loudest. THOSE are the moments that should be documented. Those the images that are priceless and will last a lifetime. Sometimes as mommies we want that perfect picture where everyone is acting right and smiling just perfectly… but sometimes – its the moments that happen around that perfect picture that are so much better.
Thank you Charolette & Ashley for trusting me to document that milestone for Levi and for your family. These images tell a beautiful story of your family in this moment, I hope you cherish them forever.
Happy Birthday Levi.
