The Stemm Fam.
This is what 27 years of a happy marriage look like…
Newlyweds. I photographed Cail and Jordan’s wedding recently. If you’d like to reminisce, it’s HERE.
And Cail’s fun brother and adorable SIL.
I’ve never done this pose with all adults. What do you guys think? I’m loving it!
Here are a few fun facts about this family…
Tell us a little about your family dynamic. How you met your husband and how long you’ve been married?
Our family is super close! My brother and I both married our high school sweethearts, so it has felt like a family of six for over 10 years now. My husband, Jordan, and I have been married for almost 6 months, and my brother, Corey, and his wife, Amanda, have been married since 2013. My amazing parents are in their 27thyear of marriage, and continue to show us kids an incredible example of what a marriage should look like!
If you could be any person for one day, who would it be?
I would probably be a Kardashian (my husband is going to disown me for saying that haha). I’d just love to see what a real day in their life looks like. Sounds glamourous… and who wouldn’t want to be that high maintenance for a day?? Someone to do my hair and makeup so I don’t have to… sounds like heaven.
What’s one thing you want to learn to do?
I’d love to learn how to reupholster furniture. Pinterest has given me the desire to learn how to refinish/repurpose things, I think of all the cool home projects I could do if only I was a little more crafty… it’s on the bucket list for sure!
If you had a $100 bill in your back pocket to spend on whatever you’d like, you’d buy…
Ooooo $100…. Right now I’ve got Christmas on the brain, so I’d probably go get a bunch of cute decorations for my first Christmas in my own house! These furry stockings from Restoration Hardware are one of my newest obsessions!!
Describe the perfect weekend..
My perfect weekend would probably be a weekend at our family cabin. Bonfires, s’mores, relaxing in the hot tub, and lots of laughs are all in store, and it’s definitely a nostalgic place for me as an adult since we spent so much time there during my childhood.
What did your family like best about your experience with Crystal Jo?
We loved how fun our photo session was! Crystal Jo did my engagement and wedding photos, and although this was a little bit different of an experience, it was equally AWESOME! We had a lot of fun and laughs during these family pictures. Crystal is easy to work with, pays close attention to the little things (which I love) and has helped us capture some pretty incredible memories. Can’t wait to see the photos she takes for our family in the years to come!
