Backyard Wildflower Summer Session | Jen and Scott

Today’s blog post is a throwback to a few years ago for this backyard wildflower summer session. After my husband got out of the Coast Guard, we were so excited to move back home to the Grand Rapids area! We found a perfect little home near where I grew up, and very close to my family. We settled in and were happy to be Michiganders.

Not long after we moved, we got a knock on the door one evening. It was this adorable couple – with a freaking homemade PIE to welcome us to the neighborhood! In the seven years and multiple moves my husband and I endured, not ONCE were we welcomed like Jen & Scott welcomed us! We became fast friends and spent many evenings around the bonfire. We became the type of neighbors that literally did have to borrow cups of sugar from each other! Scott was actually planning to propose the night we met them. Since we lived out in the country, our backyards were the perfect spot for a photo session!

They had quite a height difference between them, but they still fit so perfectly together!

Jen was wearing a walking boot after breaking her foot, so Scott was more than happy to carry her through the weeds!

Once the sun moved behind the trees in our backyard, we headed down the road to this gorgeous field. It was just bursting with wildflowers!

Jen & Scott also have the SWEETEST little pitbull named Myah. I’ve never met a more well-behaved dog, and in retrospect – why the heck didn’t we bring her along?!

Absolutely one of my all-time favorite images 😻
