Cagle Family Farms - Rice Harvest

Photographers often are in the business of capturing firsts -- first birthdays, the first days of a newborn, those first moments as husband and wife. Recently I had the unique privilege of commemorating a different kind of first for a dear family -- a first rice harvest. I met the Cagle family in the early morning hours to capture some special images to celebrate their first year farming their own land near England, Arkansas.

We prayed for the opportunity to farm, and the Lord orchestrated each step along the way. This first year has been tough but full of so many blessings!

When the Cagles first began dating, they imagined what a dream career would look like for them in the future. Stephanie says, "with lots of hard work, literal blood, sweat, and tears, we now are living our dream."

The hours are long during planting and harvest. When we really start missing Daddy and need family time, we take dinner to the fields and sometimes take a combine ride!

You might not be harvesting your first rice crop, but we all have adventures and significant moments that are worth capturing. Is your family moving into your dream home?  Are you bringing home your newborn for the first time?  Would you like to remember playing catch or playing a round of golf with your son or daughter? Nothing is too big or small to commemorate with a camera.  I would love to discuss scheduling a personalized session for your special occasion.
