It was a beautiful July evening when the Taylor’s arrived at Redemption Square Farm in Gautier, Mississippi. The humidity was high but the summer heat was far cooler than usual this time of year. I had left my camera outside for thirty minutes before they arrived, so my lens wouldn’t fog. You wouldn’t believe how hard it is to capture clear photos without prior planning during a Mississippi summer. Living on the Mississippi Gulf Coast is exactly where I want to be, but it comes with unique challenges.
I had sent that style guide to Kelli, and she had dressed everyone accordingly. I was so impressed! She was a master of choosing complementary colors that made everyone look their best. Each person photographed so well. The kids were excited to see the animals, and I promised to make the session quick, fun, and easy. Promising a farm tour afterwards is ALWAYS a good bartering chip with kids.
Everyone had fun, even the parents. Haha! I think the photos do a good job telling the story of how much they love each other and how much they have to be thankful for.
May God bless you as you do ministry and life together. May you remember the joy you share. May the laughter between you bind you together. May your good memories be long and the sorrowful ones short. May you always remember the kindness God has shown you, and may you share His love with the world you meet.
