When I pulled up to Kari and Ben’s house, I was floored by how charming it is! It’s the perfect farmhouse tucked into the country on an amazing plot of land. I couldn’t have asked for a more gorgeous setting for their session! All week leading up to their session, the forecast was showing rain and thunderstorms for the entire day, which wouldn’t have been a problem since lifestyle sessions are mostly indoors. But amazingly, the rain stayed away most of the day! In fact, when I got to their house, the sun was out! So we decided to start the session outside while we had sun, and I’m so glad we did!! Those images are some of my favorites from the session!
I was so impressed by how the strength of their faith showed not only through the beautiful religious artwork displayed throughout their home, but also through their kindness and love for one another. Kari and Ben are an incredible team, and Josie is such a good big sister. I loved it when she would cheerfully shout, “Baby Lijah!” (Our kiddos are about the same age, so it was also really fun for me to see how similar the interactions are between big sister and baby brother. 🙂 )
Kari and Ben, thank you for welcoming me into your home! It was such an honor to spend time with you and photograph your beautiful family in this special season of your life! Enjoy your photos!!
