What is a Portrait?

If you were to take a portrait of your house, could you capture what really makes your house a home?

Maybe it’s the feeling when you’re first handed the keys. Or maybe the photo collage in your great room full of the memories you’ve made there. Perhaps it’s the smell of warm cookies baking in the oven or your dog running to greet you at your front door.

While each KB Home might have a different floor plan, design options and style, the one thing our homes all have in common is that people bring life into them each and every day. It is each family’s unique story that truly makes every KB Home portrait into something special. This is the essence of what we think makes a KB Home Portrait a story to tell!

Three families welcomed us into their KB homes to tell their homeowner stories. Each family’s journey had its own special moments and memories, which we were blessed to learn about and be able to share. The Bunch, Whalen and Wooldridge families inspired us with how their homes have become such integral parts of their life stories and the warmth in which they shared those moments with us for our KB Home Portraits series.



The moment we met these families, we knew we were becoming a part of something special. First we experienced Kristie and Tim Whalen’s seemingly unconditional hospitality. Then we were touched by twenty-eight year old Brittney Wooldridge’s honesty about the challenges of being a mother during her husband’s deployment. Then we were privileged to talk with Marie Bunch who shared an emotional account of her and James’s humble beginnings and the former belief that they would never afford a home. Each family divulged memories with us during our productions that were full of heart and nothing short of extraordinary.


If you have checked out the KB Home Portraits website, you know these are some pretty amazing families! We are thankful to have gotten to know and spend time with each and every one of them. Can you relate to their stories?  If you’re a homeowner, how has your journey to homeownership been special?

Our experience connecting with the families of KB Home Portraits  has moved us to connect with more of our homeowners and we’d love to hear from you! Share a story from your Digital Scrapbook like Kristy or a photo from your wall collage like Brittany. We’d love to see how our homeowners are decorating with their own style like Marie!

You can share your story directly with our team and other homeowners by tagging @kbhome and #myKBHome on Instagram or Twitter and become a part of the KB Home Portraits story today!
