Nestled away from the hustle and bustle of city life, Lauren and Chris Matts embarked on a journey that took them from the urban jungle to the serene embrace of country living. Along the way, they not only embraced the tranquility of rural life but also cultivated a vibrant market garden farm named "Sunny Hill Farm." We, Treeline Photos, recently had the privilege of capturing the essence of their new life, filled with animals, greenery, and boundless love.
As we approached Sunny Hill Farm, the vast expanse of acreage unfolded before us, adorned with a plethora of animals and lush garden beds. Lauren and Chris have created a haven where chickens, goats, donkeys, and even a recent addition – a baby donkey – thrive in harmony. The picturesque surroundings set the stage for a memorable photoshoot, capturing not only the love between Lauren and Chris but also the natural beauty that envelops their home.
Our visit coincided with the festive season, providing the perfect backdrop for family Christmas photos. The joyous atmosphere was amplified by the presence of playful cats, curious chickens, and the ever-watchful donkeys. The enchanting setting allowed us to create timeless images that reflect the warmth and charm of the countryside.
Lauren's creative spirit shone through as she effortlessly transitioned through multiple outfit changes, each one bringing a unique charm to the photographs. With a myriad of ideas in mind, she led us through their homestead, stopping at various locations for captivating shots. Her radiance, coupled with the rustic beauty of Sunny Hill Farm, made for truly enchanting portraits.
The farm's residents weren't just observers; they actively participated in the photoshoot. Cats weaved through the scenes, chickens added a touch of whimsy, and the donkeys, including the adorable newborn, became unexpected stars. The lively atmosphere resonated with the joy and spontaneity of farm life, creating an authentic and heartwarming collection of images.
But wait, there's more! As the photoshoot progressed, Lauren's husband, Chris, joined in for some intimate shots. They were complete naturals. These two are not just stunning; they're the definition of relationship goals. The grand finale featured the entrance of Willa, the most excited and slightly jealous puppy you've ever seen. She gave us those side-eye glances, demanding her share of attention, and honestly, we were here for it. Including your furry friends in photos? 10/10, would recommend.
Capturing the love story of Lauren and Chris at Sunny Hill Farm was a delightful experience! Their transition from city life to country living, marked by the establishment of their market garden farm, is a testament to the beauty of forging a life together. Through every snapshot, we witnessed the joy, passion, and commitment that define their journey. Lauren and Chris are not just cultivating a farm; they are cultivating a life filled with love, laughter, and the enduring beauty of the countryside. We left their session eager to edit!
