Southwestern Mood in Southern Missouri


this shoot came to be because my model, Amber, (who is also a photographer) sent me inspiration photos of outfits and when I saw this outfit she put together I gasped. Its needless to say, this style gets me every time!

my love of rodeo was birthed by the Sikeston Jaycee Bootheel Rodeo, and I just happened to do this shoot a few days before it was announced that Nelly, an artist a primarily country based rodeo may not seem the likely entertainment. I think this was a great move. If anybody can bring this country together in a very strange time, when people are truly pitted against each other, it’s Nelly. His music goes back years, and he has brought some of the most iconic party songs of all time. its 2020. This is the year to do the most. amber was such a natural in front of the camera. She clearly had experience because I hardly had to tell her what to do!

which brings me to these photos! This location really complemented her outfit andI hope you feel like you’re in the wild Wild West!

Thanks for reading this far 🤠
