I also have two little girls so I know how precious they are. I had the honor of photographing the Montgomery family recently. These two girls really got into the shoot after a little bit and after they explored the sunflower field for a bit. I showed them the pictures on the back of my camera and they laughed when they saw I accidentally took some photos of their feet – which in actuality I wish had turned out better cause that would have been a cute shot.

Casey [the mother] was a previous boss of mine and still a mentor for me and someone I highly look up to. The fact that she reached out to me for this opportunity warmed my heart. I would do it again and again if she asked. She is a strong, beautiful mother who knows how to run the world (and I kinda wish she did) – seriously I haven’t met many women like her. When I worked for her she held me up, gave a voice among the little people. I always loved the way to lead our office with poise and grace. Also too, her hands. I love the way she speaks with her hands. I don’t think she knows that.

So everyone is really excited about Grinter’s Sunflower Field because it’s 40 acres of sunflowers! But little did I know that there was actually a small sunflower field right off of 75hwy south of Topeka by a 4H group. That’s where I shot these photos and the sunflowers turned out great even though we were worried about them after such a down pour and flooding our area had a few days before.

Every time before a photoshoot I get really nervous. I hope and say a little prayer that I’ll do a good job. It’s this work that is giving me an artistic outlet these days. I just love seeing what shows up through my camera lens. I love editing and seeing how far or little I can push it. Sometimes I’m a little over dramatic with my edits. I just can’t help it.

I hope this family loves these photos for years to come and remembers this little late afternoon. I know I will.
