sunflowers + sunshine

I am THE WORST at blogging.

I want so badly to be able to put all of my thoughts out there and create this beautifully amazing blog, but, let's face it... half the time, I truly don't know what to say. My goal for 2018 was to keep up on blogging my Sessions and truly give it my all and like most new years resolutions, I did not stick to it! I guess that makes me human right?

Some sessions... just have to be blogged though. They just have to! 

Sunflowers are my favorite flower and I swear to you guys, this day spoke to my soul. Sometimes I just need those days of calm to keep myself grounded and this was one of those days. 

I had recently joined a Traveling Dress group... let me explain. So. Katie Denton, from Katie Denton Photography buys these BEAUTIFUL dresses from extremely talented designers and she then creates Traveling Dress Series where fellow photographers can then pay a small fee to rent the dress for a week. These dresses range from hundreds to thousands of dollars and she organizes all of this herself! It's seriously amazing. Check out her Instagram @reviveyosoul to see all of the beautiful images of the dress from photographers around the world! You may even see a few of my images on there!

Anyways, back to my point. 

I joined this Traveling Dress group and the series I joined in on was a Mommy + Me Series. It just so happens that one of my best friends and her beautiful daughter were the perfect fit for these dresses! I immediately called her up and asked her if she was interested and the week that I received these dresses I heard about a gorgeous sunflower field a road trip away! It all seemed to perfect, so we had to go and of course my friend and her kiddos were up for the road trip. We blared music and sang along, of course picked up all the snacks and headed to the field. When we got there it was so quiet, all you could hear were the birds chirping and I swear if you could hear sunshine you would have. It was breathtaking to see nothing but sunflowers all around us for miles! The images that came from this day give me all the feels and I am so happy to share them with you! I loved the dress so much that my friend even took some photos of me in it!

Eeeeeek! Just over here dreaming of such a beautiful day!

I know what you're thinking... could Melissa and Jo be any more beautiful?

Here are a few she took of me! Getting in front of the camera is SO nerve wracking to me!
