While the greater Austin area surely has it's own beauty, I'm certain that it can't possibly compare to the Hill Country off to the west about an hour. I come from the Rocky Mountains, I grew up taking the magnificent beauty of the mountains for granted. Being so young when I left, I yearned for city life but now I'm dreaming of when I can get back to my beautiful Wasatch mountains, even just for a visit. Getting out into the hill country is definitely helping me cope with my loss of such beautiful scenery. When we got to this shoot location, even though I'd been here before, I thought " Now THIS is Texas". The sunsets at Ink's Lake State Park are just glorious and seem to last much longer than when you're in town.
I was so happy when I found out that Lacey and Daniel were willing to go the extra mile ( literally) and shoot here! I don't think they even were sold on it until they got there. But they trusted me and I'm so glad they did!
About my couple: Lacey is a talented beautiful photographer ( yes, shooting other photographers is something I LOVE to do) and her long time boyfriend Daniel ( who is currently a student) moved to the Austin area a couple of years ago. They were so fun to shoot and just willing to try and do whatever to get a great set of images. Who else here thinks Lacey should just add "professional model" to her resume? Raise your hand!
