Have you ever been to Rooted Farmstead? It’s a family-run kind of place with a cool, boho vibe with even cooler owners. Christie and her husband Mark have built this place up from the ground—quite literally. There you can buy gorgeous blooms, host a fun event while sipping wine and partaking in a fun floral craft, purchase gardening products and ‘90s-inspired motifs, or even visit their market or “you pick” events! Regardless, we’ve been wanting to photograph this property for some time and hope we’ll get a shot of photographing the venue in August in the sunflower field!
Carley is an all-out sunny, sweet girl who adores boho, in particular, country boho. Her moment to shine came one rainy afternoon. If you know Pennsylvania weather, you know one thing: it’s very unpredictable. Delete all the weather apps. PA weather is on a whole different level. It rained all day, even while Carley was in the hair and makeup chair. Talk about cutting it close!
But it must have been meant to be for this girl because the clouds parted, the sun came out, and we had the most gorgeous session.
The incredible style team sisters, Lexi and Alayni, knew exactly what we were going for. The sun-kissed glow and the boho braid were a perfect look under one of Rooted Farmstead’s wide-brim hats with dried flowers.
In the end, we took advantage of Rooted Farmstead’s shop, played in the greenhouse, and explored the wheat field. We may have started the day with storm clouds and worry, but we finished the night, radiated in the evening’s summer glow full of hope.
If you’re curious and need something to make you smile this week, check out Carley’s country boho session! But before you scroll, we mustn’t forget to thank all who were involved to make this happen…
