Roots & Wings

Generally, when I'm going through pictures after a session, I turn on some music and settle into my favorite cushion on the couch. I get so encompassed in what was captured in those few hours of a session that I don't hear the rest of the world's noise anymore. But in this case, a certain song came on my iTunes that felt so right, that I sang it over and over and over through this editing process. It's called "Roots and Wings" by Miranda Lambert. And I think it hit home because this family, by definition, seemed to be just that. Look at these lyrics!


I thank the Lord above
On my Sunday drive
For Daddy’s hands
And Mama's dreams
He gave me roots
She gave me wings

He said run on love
And run on life
And plant some seeds
Until you're tired
Don't take anything at all for granted

You see, I spent an entire afternoon photographing four generations of a ranching, farming, rural family that gave me memories I'll never forget. I heard all about this little girl's puppy, kitty, and mini-hereford named "Slobber Bucket", and I watched as this family not only came together for pictures, but came together over and over again through their stories of trial and triumph.


 

It was such a pleasure, you guys. Thank you for choosing me to capture such a gorgeous day! <3, Naomi
