While back in Springfield, Missouri, I shot two photo sessions and both happened to be for families of girls I swam with while in college. This was the other shoot that happened out towards Willard on a family farm. Becca and I do photo sessions each time I pass through and it's been amazing to watch her family grow. When we first started out, she only hand her daughter and the first boy, Asher. Now they have five fabulous kiddos and have relocated to this awesome property outside of town. She had told me that they had purchased a farm house situated on some land and secretly I was hoping she was going to say, "let's do the photos at my house!" yay, cause that's exactly what she said! It was amazing. The sun, the land, the barn, the house, all of it... awesome! As you scroll through the images you'll see why it's gorgeous and the perfect place to raise a family. Chris and I love so much of a little bit of everything. We love the farm land with country life but we also love the hussle bussle of the city life. I guess that's why living in a tiny camper suites us just fine for now. However, I just can't get over the awesome views they have every morning when they awake and every evening when the the sun sets. These kids are free to run and play and just be kids. There are no screaming neighbors, they can explore their land and be who they want. Becca homeschools her kids as well and truthfully, I couldn't think of a better place to do so.
Becca, you guys have an awesome family and I'm always honored to get to shoot your growing clan. See you again in the fall. :)
