When Stewartville Senior, Lori Bailey, asked me if I was willing to come out to her family farm for her senior portraits, I couldn’t think of anything more fun! Anytime I have a senior that wants their photos done in a completely unique location, I am on cloud nine. I have no problem making the drive and playing explorer! Not only does her family have a traditional farm with your normal cows and other animals, but they are also tree farmers and have a ton of acreage full of gorgeous scenery. Could you imagine growing up with all of this in your backyard?! Most of our locations were only accessible by four wheeler or an old pick up truck, which made her session even more fun. Barns full of stacked logs, the coolest rustic outbuildings, animals everywhere, a CCP full of gorgeous wildflowers, a hiking trail off the beaten path, a natural spring with a waterfall, plenty of pastures and fields….a photographer’s paradise!
Lori and her family selected the ELITE portrait session, which is perfect because we had more time to explore her property and photograph her session in the summer and the fall. We even had a special family session with her parents and brother. I love that Lori is up for anything and throws caution to the wind. She is so full of life and made our sessions non-stop fun and laughs. Most importantly, we got to include all of her favorite things and favorite places in an EPIC way! Thanks to the Bailey Family for inviting me out to your incredible farm!
