I was lucky enough to be called upon to photograph portraits of a sweet couple I’ve know for a few years now. We roamed around their ranch in the hills and shot portraits in shady spots among pine trees and rock piles. Later on, we went further into the hills at sunset where we found a patch of Indian Paintbrush. It was a beautiful evening and these colorful flowers, our state flower, makes the hills look like a painting.

    Love this photograph. Indian Paints look very different in Texas. If you’re interested in seeing the southwest cousins check out my FB page and scroll through the photos of bluebonnets and paints. I certainly enjoy your photos, Leah.
