7. The muddy images that embrace the mess of motherhood (Image Source: thestir)|
This messy photo, taken by Dallas photographer Elaine Baca, shows Brittany Barton, her husband Jon, and their two oldest sons and just dancing, slinging, and living it up in the Texas mud. Not what you'd have in mind for your maternity session? It wasn't what Brittany planned either, but as Baca explained, "In Waxahachie, Texas, when it rains, it pours. In the weeks leading up to the maternity session, the rain was relentless."
The family rescheduled several times and considered indoor photo locales, but Baca had a better idea—she knew the Barton's were outdoorsy, fun, and up for anything. "They have a huge backyard which backs up to a field, and I knew it had lots of muddy puddles, so I asked her what she thought about playing in the rain and ending with a mud fight. I don't think she (Brittany) even hesitated; she said she trusted my vision and wanted to go for it!"
The results are pure magic and a reminder that while life may get messy, it's also part of the fun, especially when you have kids!
