We decided to take a model out and kick the tires a bit. We gathered up some wardrobe from some local boutiques and headed out to The Barn at Lone Eagle Landing for the shoot. The grounds at Lone Eagle are just amazing even though it was designed for weddings and receptions; they have some outstanding locations there for photography as well.
The natural beauty within the rolling hills of farmland...
The Barn at Lone Eagle Landing is a quiet, family-owned wedding and event venue located on 400+ acres in beautiful Sainte Genevieve county, the heart of Missouri wine country.
We had a chance to interview one of the hard working ladies of the Barn.
The Barn at Lone Eagle Landing is intimately secluded on a rural working farm with a wealth of attractive features across the property. The Barn offers countless possibilities to host and showcase your wedding, corporate event, or special event gathering.
...an endearing canvas awaiting the addition of your distinct style...
The natural beauty within the rolling hills of farmland, the numerous picturesque water features, along with the charming countryside create an endearing canvas awaiting the addition of your distinct style and personalization.
...a family of hard-working people who want to provide the highest level of hospitality...

Sarah Henson, creator and owner of A Simply Chic Boutique in Farmington is not only a local business owner. A devoted wife and mother of three rambunctious boys (around 2.5 years apart) she tends to keep her hands full!
Here's the 411 on this 573 Boutique...
"I originally started the boutique in my home out of our spare bedroom in 2017, and it was a hit!!! Although outgrowing that spare room, and taking over the entire house wasn’t in the plan — so, we decided to move and have a location to go to! We moved to 24 E Columbia St. (our new "home" that we hope to stay at for a long, long time) during the second week of December when I was 8 months pregnant!!! Now, we are kicking it with the little dude at the boutique most days. I love fashion and all things creative! I also make a lot of the bracelets in the store and starting to grow toward more options in jewelry. We hope to always make you smile when you come in and hope you find something you love!"
