Volkening Heritage Farm: Melissa Marie Photography: BABILLA BOYS

I love this age of kids… You start to get a sneak peek at what they’ll possibly look like when they’re grown, (Which, I mean… Come on! How handsome are these guys!!?) but still have the fun, bashful, sweetness of still being kids. Brother’s are usually fighting, or rough-housing, or in some way picking on the other, but these two, are so sweet! May that also be a sneak peek into how they’ll be when they’re grown.

VOLKERING HERITAGE FARM: MELISSA MARIE PHOTOGRAPHY: DODARO FAMILY

Back before being a photographer was big, 15 years ago, I was slingin’ lattes as a barista at Starbucks seeing if I could make this “photo thing” work. Well, looks like more than just my mom reads this “little blog” and I’ve had the honor of taking a photo or two. (: But before my business got off the ground, I had to pay my bills and getting free coffee is never a bad option. I loved it! I also loved who I worked with. If I was gonna get up at 4:14AM (I’m not a morning person) I better like who I”m working with. And I did! Tara was one of those people. She’s fun. Genuine. And obviously has good tastebuds. (: So crazy to see where this life journey has brought each of us. Her little girls are absolute dolls!

VOLKERING HERITAGE FARM: MELISSA MARIE PHOTOGRAPHY: KIRK FAMILY

If I had to describe this family in one word I’d say: “classy.” They’re the kinda pretty and put together that when making pancakes on a weekend it could be a spread in the JCREW catalog.

They’re not only the kind of people… they ARE the people that have so many accomplishments but you wouldn’t know it from their own words. They have every right to, but they aren’t braggers or boastful. Especially in a culture where everyone is blasting bigger and better online, these guys humbleness is…well, classy!
