Pretty thrilled to have my photo on the cover of American Farmhouse Style! I’ve done a couple cover images prior with Grand Rapids Magazine, but this is the first time for me on a national magazine. The cover story features the home of Carey Johnson (@careyscountrygarden on Instagram). I shot this in LeRoy, Michigan, in May 2020 and didn’t know I got the cover until late February this year when I received a surprise yellow envelope in the mail. Since it’d been so long since the shoot, I forgot to even be expecting this issue. So my heart really skipped a beat when I saw what it was and that my shot was chosen for the cover! The editor mentioned this particular shot might be a good cover option, so I made sure to put some extra time on site making sure things were framed and staged just right. It was worth it!
