Ashley and Davin are a very sweet couple. They met in Denver at a cattle showing, only to find out they were both from Ohio. After many dates and a couple of years, Davin popped the question at Ashley's childhood farm. Since showing cattle is how they met and is still a big part of their lives, we incorporated the feel of the country life, and of course the cattle. That week was very wet, so when we approached Sunday, Mother's day, I started to get a little worried. Fortunately the rain stopped for the shoot that day, but it was very wet.
I'm definitely a city girl poser. I was raised in home surrounded by cornfields and a town called Farmland was in my backyard. The name says it all. On our free time, my friends and I would hang out on a farm or go on long bike rides in the country. I'm DEFINITELY not a city girl... even though I decided to wear my knee high leather boots that day. If I was thinking correctly, I would have put on my leather cowboy boots and fit in with the rest. With that said, I was not scared at all. I love animals, I love mud (I'm so lucky I end up with a baby boy). Although my appearance for the day was that I don't like mud or animals... I do.
I can't stop saying how sweet Ashley and Davin are. They were very welcoming when I arrived and the entire time they were so positive. I shot ended up being longer, mostly because I loved being around them. Ashley has a smile that is genuine like Olivia Mary de Havilland in "Gone with the Wind" (Am I a total nerd for referencing that?). Not only is Davin a driven guy who will be a great provider, but he also loves Ashley in a true and honoring way. I love working with couples like this!
The session was a lot of fun and it was so sweet of Mrs. Rumpke for sharing her daughter on Mother's Day.
I hope you enjoy!
