As many of you know, I live in South Alabama.....in the south we grow this white stuff called cotton.
You know, that stuff your jeans and t-shirts are made of!?! ;-)
It's a thing down here to have photo shoots in cotton fields!!! My only concern was the snakes that we are also known for!! O.o
My friend texted me one day and asked if I would take some family photos for her....of course I said YES!!!! It is my love to do so !!! We were worried about the weather (pretty off the charts unpredictable around here) and the timing as this was Thanksgiving weekend!!! Everything worked beautifully and we were all happy with the results!!! =) The farmer agreed to allow us to use his field, we were all available at the same time, and the cotton was at peak!!!
So...on Black Friday, I got to capture some fabulous moments with a wonderful family out in a cotton field!!!
I must say, I MUCH prefer that to shopping any day!!!!! =)
The whole family!!
Love the light on this one!!!! Such a gorgeous evening!!
Not sure I have ever laughed so much on a photo shoot!!! I will work with this family ANY time!!! LOVED every minute of it!!!

I chose this photo because this guy is so stinkin' funny and this is how I remember spending the afternoon...Laughing and seeing love!!! =)
Mr. & Mrs. ..... A sweet love story
Part of the epic-ness of the day was... as were finishing up, and by that I mean "just packed the camera away and walking off the field with the props", the cotton pickers showed up to clear the field!!!! Talk about perfect timing!!! It was an awesome sight to behold!!! These machines are massive and very efficient!!!
