If you live in the Evansville, Indiana area you might know about the sunflower fields at Bluegrass Fish and Wildlife, unless you live under a rock like me! I just learned about it this summer.
My friend told me about these beautiful fields back in July and we planned to go together but our schedules didn’t allow that so I went by myself. I spent a good hour walking through these gigantic, precious, golden, and glorious flowers that were taller than me. I took tons of pictures trying to capture the moment. I was in awe.
There is something about being in stillness of nature that always makes me feel closer to God. It makes me realize just how small my worries are in the grand scheme of things. Whether I am sitting on a chair on my back patio watching the squirrels and listening to the birds sing, lying on a blanket on the beach soothing my soul to the sound of the crashing waves, or standing in the middle of a SEA OF SUNFLOWERS…I feel like I am a part of something much bigger than myself. It is an exhilarating, humbling feeling. These are the moments when I feel most ALIVE.
My friend and professional photographer, Bret Roebling, offered to photograph me in the sunflower fields at the Bluegrass Fish and Wild life preserve back in July and I gratefully accepted his offer. Click here to see some of the images he took of me and then check out his entire website at myphotographyevent.com. Bret has an amazing eye for capturing that feeling I had in the moment and it shines through in his photographs.
Bret told me they are gearing up for their Holiday 50% off portrait session through the month of September. You can contact him at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 812-925-6920 to schedule an appointment.
So in awe of God’s creation and if you are like me, you would like to capture it forever to remember.
