Reis Family // Killeen, TX

This April marked my first trip to Texas. I drove from Los Angeles, across west Texas, to Katy for the Pin Oak Classic horse show series. My time in this state wouldn't have been complete without a trip to a Texas ranch + I was excited to photograph this series of portraits on the go. We rode out to their spring pasture for a multi-generational cattle check + I'm so privileged to have been invited along to capture the magic of this day.

It was my great pleasure to spend the day with the Reis family at their ranch outside Killeen, TX. I make it a point to connect with farmers + ranchers when traveling through new parts of the country. Having grown up on a small organic farm, I studied agricultural business management in college + continue my education through visual storytelling. I thank them for their kindness, generosity + for opening their home to me.
