Even though some farm kids grow up and leave the farm it is great to bring their children back to their roots…

Mommy bought her these adorable boots when she was on a trip to Nashville…how appropriate…

Saner 2014-2262  Saner 2014-2264

This is the third time that I have had the privilege to photograph this beautiful little girl…I was feeling pretty special when she called me by my first name…

Saner 2014-2270

We were off to see the cows…she was not “so sure” about them…

Saner 2014-2282  Saner 2014-2291

A little better from a distance…

Saner 2014-2376

Not my usual type of edit…she looked as if she could have stepped right out of a fairy tale…

Saner 2014-2383  Saner 2014-2406  Saner 2014-2426  Saner 2014-2435

She is on the move…

Saner 2014-2437
