Family. My aaaaah….a place to belong. I am so thankful for family.
When the Stehr family contacted me last spring…I knew I wanted to work with them. For several reasons. One, Stacey contacted me six months in advance. This allowed me to get it on the fall schedule…which tends to be a bit crazy. Second, I worked with them before. They are a delight. Third, they were inviting me to their farm this time. They own and operate a HUGE fruit and vegetable farm north of here. It is beautiful country around their farm. In the sticks….as in no cell phone service. So it sounded like an adventure to me. And last, they were lining up several families from their home town that all wanted photos. All I had to do was show up and photograph. Which I did. All day.(:
It was a warm October day. The apple orchards were bursting at the seams. There was an old red truck, quilts, baskets, wildflowers, even an antique tractor all ready to go. The day started at 7am with coffee and a tour of the farm bumping around in the farm truck. Thanks Katie for working with me! THANK-YOU Stacey, Amy, Annie, and Michelle for being so wonderful to work with and inviting me into your lives for a day. It was an honor. Truly.
