Last weekend I had the fun opportunity of spending the day at Afton Field Farms just outside of Corvallis. I have been doing some image work for Afton Field Farm’s upcoming website and they asked me to also document a day long seminar by Joel Salatin. Salatin is the proprietor of Polyface Farms, a popular author, and leader in the sustainable farming movement. I had such a wonderful time and learned so much from Salatin as he used Afton Field as an example for starting up a sustainable farm. I’m very excited to work more with the farm, I really love what they are doing and hope to support them in any way I can.

If you are interested in what they are doing at Afton Field, or sustainable farming in general, you can find them and their grass fed, pasture raised meat (as well as honey as eggs) at the Saturday farmers market in Corvallis.

Here are a few of the highlights of the day…

This summer I got to do two great shoots with Leanne, both her maternity portrait photography and then the following newborn portraits of her son, Tabor. Maternity/Newborn combo sessions are deeply fulfilling, being able to connect with the mother in the time of anticipation and unknown, and then later to meet the bundle of joy that we have all been waiting for.
These are some of the outdoor “PG” maternity portraits with Leanne, and then you as well will get to meet Tabor…. 🙂
