Anyone that knows me, knows that I have country roots.  I grew up with nature all around me.  It’s a part of me.  I love the city, too, don’t get me wrong… but I feel at ‘home’ when surrounded by nature.  That is exactly how I feel when I got the opportunity to shoot two Cedar Hill State Park engagement sessions.

Cedar Hill State Park has a section called Penn Farm, filled with several barns, a couple farm houses, fences and outbuildings.  The trees make it though.  THAT is why I go there.  The trees are so beautiful and green.

The first session I got to do was for Megan and Jared.  What a gorgeous couple, and so nice too.  We had a great time playing in the different barns.  I loved exploring the whole area with these two.  Check out their amazing engagement photos.

In addition to some great barns and outbuildings, there are two farmhouses on this property.  We couldn’t go inside, but the porch was nice.

LOVE the big barn on this property.

Right before the sun set, we ran over to the docks and got some great images.  =)

The next couple, Norma and Luis, saw the images I posted of Megan and Jared’s session, and knew that they HAD to have their session there, too.  We got to explore a few different areas with them.  This one, too, was at sunset.  I don’t think Norma and Luis stopped laughing the whole time.  I loved their emotion and enthusiasm.

Can you not clearly see why this is one of my favorite places to shoot, especially when we get that golden light of sunset coming through the trees?  That light is just beyond gorgeous!  So, if you are looking for a cute country area with fences, barns, and lots of beautiful greenery, this is definitely your place!

It is a State Park, so the admission is minimal and you are supporting a great cause… keeping Texas beautiful.  I urge you to please, please, PLEASE, do not bring chalk or paint.  It ruins the wood of these barns and fences, and it is not easy to clean or paint.  So, please help us keep these parks as beautiful as you found them.
