Back in 2015 I had the chance to work with some incredible models. Each excited to help capture some unique images. We had so much fun!
When you see these images you see something old, overgrown, broken, and maybe even scary at times. But we see beauty, a home, stories screaming to be told, history even forgotten.
She was over 100 years old. A farm house that held stories whispering to be told… And yet she was left and forgotten. Left to waste away, for the trees around her to take hold and bring her to the ground around us. And yet when the world sees something ugly. When the world saw something not worth saving… We the Photographer and Models who were blessed to stand in her presence saw and felt the beauty she held.
A week after this shoot I drove past this beautiful home. I saw a moving truck, bulldozers, and machines ready to destroy her. Her road was blocked off. Her walls and secrets were ready to be destroyed. And yet I may not have lived there, or had the chance to known her story. But apart of me cried when I saw what I had already knew was coming.
And now a few years later I still drive past that field… I look and see newer homes that stand in her place. None with the beauty that she had. But maybe these new ones will have the chance to create memories, will have the chance to stand in her places for another 100 years, and maybe just maybe they will share their stories for years to come as well.
You saw a broken house… I SAW BEAUTY & A HOME. ❤
