Ocala | Florida

We got to meet Sarah and Roger this last weekend at their home in gorgeous Ocala (which takes much longer to drive to than google maps led us to believe, sorry guys) for their big red barn engagement session. Both Nate and I were excited because Sarah had made our lives easy by deciding on a theme for her portraits and even finding the perfect barn to shoot at! (Thanks Sarah's friend's neighbor!) Can I please, for a second, tell you all how much I LOVE having some sort of theme for these sessions? It doesn't have to be anything super detailed, even something as simple as a big red barn can give us such inspiration and can keep all the images cohesive. I am so in love with these frames from their session. It doesn't help that I'm listening to my "I love country" playlist while I edit these. Now I'm all nostalgic for horses, homemade cornbread, big open fields, and rugged old barns... le sigh....

Yeah, we know... "GQ called and they want Roger back" ;)

The good stuff...

I can't lie, I'm really excited about this one...

Sexy legs...


I can't get Nate to listen to country music but I still sneak it while he's gone and I'm at home working.
And in case anyone is curious, here is my "I Love Country" Playlist, for your listening pleasure:

.Bad Things / Jace Everett (True Blood theme song, hello yum!)
.Nothin' Better to Do / LeAnn Rimes (Because I like the sassiness)
.Flat On the Floor / Carrie Underwood
.Last Name / Carrie Underwood (This one cracks me up)
.Down in Mississippi / Sugarland (A favorite since freshman year of college)
.Save a Horse, Ride a Cowboy / Big & Rich (How can you not love this?)
.Honky Tonk Badonkadonk / Trace Adkins
.Boondocks / Little Big Town
.Kerosene / Miranda Lambert
.Rough & Ready / Trace Adkins
.Jacked Up / Gretchen Wilson
.Tim McGraw / Taylor Swift (I'll admit it, she tells good stories)
.Before He Cheats / Carrie Underwood
.Moments / Emerson Drive
.She's Everything / Brad Paisley (Swoonsauce)
.Want To / Sugarland
.Stay / Sugarland (Sugarland may be my favorite country band)
.Would You Go with Me / Josh Turner (His voice is like butter!)
