As we all know, Abilene is a bit on the small side. Sometimes looking for a great location to shoot at can be a challenge unless you own beautiful land. I knew the look and feel I wanted to go for when I saw this beautiful building. This is actually the pool at the Abilene state park! The Sams were super willing in following along with my idea for a styled shoot. They let me choose their wardrobe and styling and Lauren had her hair and makeup done professionally for a complete, polished look.
Lauren and Tom have been together for 12.5 years and they recently celebrated their 10 year wedding anniversary! I don’t know about you but I think that definitely calls for updated portraits! They are originally from Watertown, NY. The Sams have been here in Abilene, for 7 years now. I love meeting new people and hearing where they’re from and where they’ve been. We have been all over the world and all kinds of places but at the moment, we are here. I think that’s neat!
Along with a little bit of romance in our session, came lots of fun! Everything from deep gazes to slow dancing!
I think it’s safe to say we all had a lot of fun! The twirling is always fun and gets genuine smiles out of everyone.
The color palette for this session is pure LOVE!
How cool is this stairway? If you haven’t gone out the state park, I highly recommend it! Do not forget your bug spray though!
I had to snag single shots of each of them because, look at them! Why wouldn’t I?!
Our session ended at this cute little bridge with some more laughter and the beginnings of a gorgeous sunset. My drive home was so stunning!
