I recently had the pleasure of meeting and getting to know Miss Kelly Littmann of Farmstead Lifestyle. Kelly has an amazing story and I feel like a better person for having met her. In just the small amount of time I spent with her I learned a very important lesson. Count your blessings. And count them one day at a time.
Kelly owns Farmstead Lifestyle, a boutique in the historic Liberty Square. Farmstead is filled with interiors, antiquities, jewels, clothing, inspiration and more (and a pair of cowboy boots I’m dying to bring home – just as soon as she gets them in my size).
I photographed Kelly for Her Life Magazine at her Missouri farm house. A lovely home, a barn and carriage house, a riding arena and lots of gorgeous trees filled Kelly and her husband’s 30 plus acre estate, which would not be complete without Kelly’s beautiful horses. I won’t spill too much of Kelly’s story because I want you to read about her in the magazine, but let me just say I’m honored to now call her a friend. She’s a beautiful woman – inside and out, so full of energy, passion and love.
We also had the pleasure of working with makeup artist Karin Barragato of KAE Makeup, who did a fabulous job of making Kelly look her best. Even if you’re just having family portraits done I would highly recommend using a makeup artist. Not only will you feel fantastic after being pampered but you’ll look like a million bucks, too! There’s a big difference between everyday makeup and camera makeup and Karin is AMAZING! I plan to use her for our family portraits this fall.
Wishing you all a day filled with more blessings than you can count.
