I ventured out to meet Valerie and Andrew a couple weeks ago on the most beautiful fall morning. The leaves were bursting with bright yellow, orange and crimson colors, the sun was peaking through the trees, and the temperature was just about perfect. As I waited for them to arrive, I spoke with Andrew’s grandmother who owns the horse stables on the farm. Of course I had to say hello and meet all of the furry friends!
I met Valerie a couple years ago at a bible study. She’s the type of person you could chat with for hours and hours. When I met her husband Andrew, I quickly realized why they were a family. He was just like Valerie. Authentic, warm, welcoming and energetic about life. Their carefree joy and passion for the farm was contagious.
As we walked around and met all the farm animals, Andrew filled me in that his grandparents had owned this farm in the 70’s and Andrew and Valerie were of course overjoyed to take over the farm after they married in 2011.
Fast forward 8 years, Valerie and Andrew have welcomed 3 sweet farm helpers to the mix! ;) As I quickly realized, they adore each and every animal and love to lend a hand where needed. They were pretty excited to tell me one of their horses is named Molly ;)
Andrew and Valerie, thank you for letting me come photograph your farm and life!
