Southern Family Traditions-Pictures in the Cotton

We are southern through and through and we love everything about it! From sweet tea, “yes ma’am”, and running around barefoot, there isn’t a single thing about the south that we don’t love and take full advantage of.
But, perhaps one of my favorite things of all is the farming history of our family. My husband is a third generation farmer and has the pleasure of doing so with his brother and father.
One of the most notorious crops of southern farmers is probably cotton, aka “White Gold”. It’s not only our livelihood, but it’s our passion too! Cotton clothes us in all seasons, protects our boo-boos (think gauze, wraps, and such), feeds us (yes, cotton seed oil is very popular worldwide!), and so much more!
It’s a combination of all the wonderful uses, along with the stunning beauty of the plant itself that makes taking family portraits in cotton fields such a special tradition! And this weekend, I had a great time taking the girls’ annual cotton field pictures!
Enjoy!
