Prior to Fall sessions every year, there is another type of session we capture here in this lil' country town, they are a HUGE hit here in Louisiana, it's cotton field sessions. These are personally some of my favorite sessions. I had so much fun this year with these sessions & cannot wait to share all the beautiful families with you guys.
I learned last year to wait until right before sunset & shoot when the sun is setting over the cotton field. This is one of the prettiest things through the lens of a camera. It makes me thankful to be raised in the country. Cotton fields are just a part of our everyday life. You can drive down the road and see miles of cotton, it's part of the livelihood of so many in Louisiana & it's just an added bonus that it makes for beautiful portraits. I captured the Faulk's late one afternoon & the lighting could not have been better, the sunset was beautiful and their session turned out great!
This is a very special family in our community so I wanted to share a lil' about this family. Mr. Faulk lets me use his cotton fields every year, so I am always honored to be able to capture his sweet family. I have enjoyed getting to know them & their kids are always so nice and respectful, always willing to help me carry my equipment and a true pleasure to be around. This family is very involved in our local community. Mr. Faulk is the President for Franklin Parish Farm Bureau & a local farmer. Mrs. Faulk is the women's chairperson for Farm Bureau & the board president and JV cheer coach at Franklin Academy. The oldest of the two sons, George Adam, plays on the Franklin Academy football team and works with his Father farming. Katelynn, plays basketball and cheers at Franklin Academy. The youngest of the two sons, John Randall, plays tackle football for the Franklin Parish team. The Faulks are heavily involved in many aspects of our local community & are active members of the Bouef River Baptist Church. They are a great representation of Franklin Parish and we are proud to have them in our community!
