I fell in love with farm life somewhere in between childhood, combine-floor naps on the carhartt jacket and zipping up that blue corduroy jacket for the last time before heading off to college.
At 19 years old, frustrated by the negative media coverage and public perception of agriculture, I started taking pictures around my family’s farm, researching ag facts and designing images to advocate for agriculture on my Facebook page, Keeping it Real: Through the Lens of a Farm Girl.
To my delight (and surprise!), the images were shared hundreds of times, sometimes reaching several hundred thousand people. Requests started coming in to have these images printed as artwork. And here we are, almost 5 years later.
I am delighted you are here to see my work, and hope that it warms your heart as much as it fills mine to photograph and design these pieces for our homes.
Wishing you a blessed life in agriculture,
