smile :: the bylsma family

Kristen and Ben and their two boys live south of the city on a working farm, where they grow -- amongst other things -- hothouse tomatoes via a unique irrigation method and keep chickens. They're the early risers, the makers of wholesome local fare, the wrestlers and runners, the humble kind-hearted ones. It's a joy to be in their presence. 

I joined them at sunrise on their farm one October morning and this is a glimpse of the magic that unfolded in their unscripted smile session.
