This Lititz Family Styled Session took place on a historic farm that three generations currently live and farm on. There is a history of revival that broke out in a barn on this property. I love stories like this where revival breaks out in ordinary places, where God shows up and things change! One of the main things this farm is know for is grass-fed beef and naturally raised pork.

Back to this sweet family though… I asked them to be a part of a session that I would give some direction and style to in regards to location and clothing. I envisioned blues, sage green and cream for the clothing. For location I wanted something that lends itself to everyday life… the pasture, farm, wheat field, and plants. More of a homestead vibe.
Paula makes soap out of the tallow from the cows they raise on the farm. She discovered she could use the tallow from the cows they butchered to create a new product. It’s been amazing to see her take off in business! I wanted to include her soap in the session as well since it’s part of their farm and her everyday life. Personally we as a family use her soap on a daily basis as our body soap. It’s truly wonderful! Locally you can find it at Cocalico Creek Home and Prussian Street Arcade. You can also follow along on all of the Long Farm offerings on their Instagram.
If you missed last week’s post, it was also on a farm with several generations living together. It involves family, cute kids, a kitty and spritzers. You can check it out HERE.
