Farms often hold a special place in the hearts of the people that grew up on them. Be it a ranch, a grain farm, or just property in the country - farms illicit lots of fun and nostalgia. What's more classic than a legit tire swing!
So we were stoked when we discovered this multi-generational family session was at their farm. Half of WyldFox grew up on a farm and the better half of WyldFox has an intense love of barns, pastures, and all things farm (likely due to all of the time spent on her grandparents' farms). We could not wait to photograph their family at location of such great meaning to them.
Our session drew to a dramatic, fast close as a major storm rolled in. It was supposed to stay further North, but we got loaded up within mere minutes of being completely soaked. However, with the storm creating a wonderfully moody sky above and with some wheat below, we believe we captured the quintessential "Midwest" farmer and his wife family photo. All it was missing was a pitchfork! We loved hearing about the history of their farm and how they all had so many beautiful memories of spending quality time there together. They swung on the swings that had been up for decades and it felt as though we were capturing a real piece of their family history. We truly believe that sentimental locations are among the best places to have a photography session with WyldFox!
