A Farmville Maternity Session | Ben & Katie

Oh my heart. I don't even know where to begin with these two. Ben is the younger brother of one of my amazing college roommates, Mollie. While I paid my way through college, I took a few semesters off here and there so I could work and save more money for school. During one break, I actually lived in the most adorable farm house in (the real) Farmville, VA and I would have to walk through Ben's room every day to access my little attic room. It was so dreamy waking up to a blanket of glowing fog as the sun rose over the farm every morning. It was a unique season in my life and it offered me the opportunity to get to know my roommate's family on a deeper level. Before I knew it, they felt like family to me. When Ben proposed to his high school sweetheart, Katie, I was over the moon excited for them! But quickly, my heart broke when I realized I was already booked for a wedding on their chosen wedding date. I've been waiting for years to make it up to them and when they were expecting their first baby I jumped at the chance to photograph them! 

I love the connection these two share... and the deep love they have for one another, their baby, and their home. Ben farms alongside of his dad on this land so I KNEW we had to do their pictures here! I hope you enjoy seeing them in their element and getting to know them a little through these pictures.
