  • Simple joys of shooting Agriculture Stock Photography: Dairy cows in the sunshine

    It’s days like this that make me love what I do. We went out to shoot agriculture stock photography on a crisp sunny morning in September. Location: the beautiful Landwehr Dairy farm in central Minnesota, where we received a warm welcome and a tour from our very gracious hosts, Dennis and Marlene (stay tuned more on them in an upcoming post).

  • Christmas on the Ranch – Carols, Bells & Cow Chores

    Every family who celebrates Christmas has their own rituals. For our family, feeding the cows is as much a part of the ritual as opening presents, lighting the advent candle, playing carol music or preparing the big family dinner. Sometimes we do chores in waves — feed in one pasture, come in for a hot chocolate and a round of presents, then […]

  • High Plains Holiday

    We celebrated Independence Day — and a 50th wedding anniversary! — with family at the ranch in Eastern Wyoming (we actually held the family reunion at beautiful and historic Ft. Robinson State Park in Northwestern Nebraska). It was great getting everyone together, and it just seemed right — honoring the legacy of family, and of our great country, at […]

  • Springtime Kids

    Nothing says Springtime fun like kids playing with kids. Shawn shot these images today just outside his photo studio on the family’s hobby farm near Rogers, MN. His youngest, Bethany, enjoys a friendly nibble from a recent arrival to the farm’s goat herd. Shawn’s wife, Cristine – the goat operation manager, reports 10 goat kids […]
