Sydney B. | Senior Session | Pride.

July 8, 2014

If you love old trucks, cowboy boots, + country girls, you are in for a treat with today’s senior session!! Miss Sydney was born + raised country. She grew up on her father’s very successful dairy farm where her family, I’m convinced, could completely sustain themselves for the rest of their lives!! PLUS, the property is absolutely beautiful, stretching for miles + miles, literally as far as the eye can see : ) They have it all!! If you haven’t picked up on it already, I just LOVED this meaningful, special, GORGEOUS location for Sydney’s pictures!!

We spent the entire evening driving down the backroads of the Brooks’ land in Sydney’s pickup truck, listening to country music + sharing life stories. <<<For those of you who know about my current country music obsession that has come out of the closet, I was LOVING this : ) : ) I learned that Sydney was raised on the values of hard work + discipline, + this has given her the strong desire to join the Air Force Academy after high school. (Her dad is also a pilot in addition to being a farmer + businessman, so that might have something to do with it as well : )!!) 

I also saw how proud this young woman was of where she came from. So proud to show me where she grew up, all the land her father owned …. proud to share the history of her family + all their accomplishments. It was really quite a beautiful thing.

I am certain you are going to enjoy the images from Sydney’s session–so full of LIFE, meaning, + pride : ) -M

I think I forgot to mention that Sydney’s also a model … no, but really. She has done modeling in the past!!! Can you tell?!

And then there were calves.

And dogs!! Lots of dog pictures coming your way ; )!!

These shots were taken in the wheat fields!!

An absolute favorite : )

The below image shows one of the gates that mark where the family’s property begins!!

Sydney helped her dad build this stone fence that lines either side of the gate : )

The wall behind Sydney in these images is from an old farm house that has been on the property for years!! I’m pretty sure all four daughters had some of their senior pictures taken here; and Sydney is the baby of the bunch!!

Okay. Dying. I love these guys!!!!!

Sydney + her dad finished restoring this old truck together–I LOVE the teal color!!

I don’t think this could be more perfect!!

Sydney with her pup, Ace, on the right : ) 

Favorite from the night <3

This is Sydney’s truck!! The one we rode around in all night : ) 

Seriously gorgeous!!!!

Syd with Mr. Apollo : ) Love the head tilt!!

And last but not least, I love this shot of daddy + daughter, the man who truly has Sydney’s heart : )
