I feel like I’ve been talking to this sweet momma forever trying to plan a date for her session!  Her husband is living in Texas right now finishing his PhD so we were working around his schedule.  I had Mardi Gras week off from teaching and her husband was in town so it was a perfect opportunity to do their session.  Well leave it to Louisiana’s crazy weather….we had a downpour of rain for days!  The day of her session it was cloudy and not raining but the park was completely under water.  This sweet momma literally trucked through maybe 3 inches of slop to get to different locations in the park.  And we had crawfish mounds everywhere! So editing was fun lol.  But I adore how they came out.  Despite all of the obstacles. She looked so pretty!

They were the sweetest couple!  She kicked off her shoes and was such a trooper standing in the mud!

Because it got so quickly we had to move towards the lake for some light.  I’m glad we did because I got to use spots that I would’ve never used before.
