Welcome to my blog!

Here you’ll find photos and snippets from my life with my amazing husband, four beautiful children and our adventures together starting and running Wayward Lane Farm. Although I am only working with a limited number of photography clients these days, you’ll also find sneak peeks from my client’s portrait sessions and from the mentoring programs I conduct. I love to see the world through my camera and hope you enjoy the moments I capture as well.

Wayward Lane Farm CSA week 6

June 27th, 2012 , Posted in Gardening, Wayward Lane Farm

For those of you who don’t know we sell shares of the produce we grow on our farm (Wayward Lane Farm) and I’ve decided to share each week’s share here on the blog. That should make it easier for all the share members to come and check on what they could expect in their boxes this week and it should serve as a good resource for recipes and such.

What could be in your box this week;

Onions, Radishes, Radish seed pods (great stir fried), Carrots, Broccoli, Swiss Chard, Beets, the last of the Lettuce, Asian Stir Fry Greens, Herbs.

If you need recipe ideas I have two great Pinterest boards that might inspire you. My Mangia board and my CSA Recipes board.

Also, here are a few books that I just ordered that are just FULL of amazing recipes for fresh produce from your CSA and Farmer’s Market.



From Asparagus to Zucchini

Serving Up The Harvest


Indiana Wheat Fields

June 7th, 2012 , Posted in Bella, Farm, my family, Personal

One of my favorite parts of living in midwest farm country is the beautiful winter wheat fields. I love how they are the first fields to turn green before spring really even arrives. And that golden glow in June-as a photographer and a country girl I can’t ever resist it. I’ve pulled over many times while driving back country roads so that I can get a good photograph of those beautiful fields. One of the first of my signature field photos was taken years ago when we were driving home from my parents house and passed this amazing wheat field just glowing in the sunset. We pulled over and piled out of the car and I captured this photograph of my boys. I guess you could say this is when my love affair with photographing sessions in fields began.

All of the fields around us are getting close to harvest time so I had to take the opportunity to do some shoots before all the wheat is gone for this year.

First is up is a mini session with Bella, but there is more to come!

If you want to book a wheat field photoshoot, please contact me ASAP-the fields will likely be gone within 5-10 days.

Wayward Lane Farm

A couple of photos I’ve taken over the last few months. I love waking up on our little farm and looking out to see the sun rising and it’s even more beautiful when I see our animals roaming happily through the fields.

Arte Bella

An artistic workshop for beginners


The Arte Bella workshop is specifically designed to teach those who are pursuing the art of beautiful portrait photography. Focusing as much on the technical aspects of shooting in manual as the art of creating a visually striking portrait, this class is for the beginner and intermediate photographer wishing to develop their skills.

The Arte Bella class is an intense course with the goal of giving you the information you need to become a confident photographer. Whether your desire is to be a hobbyist photographer, to better photograph your own children or to start your own business, this class will give you the skills you need to create beautiful photographic art. While this is not a business course, there will be brief discussions on starting your own portrait business and how to compete fairly and ethically.

happy skies

I wonder how many of my post titles have the word “sky” in them? I can’t help it, the two things that I am most inspired to photograph are my children and beautiful skies.
