You heard it right, I am a farmer’s daughter. In 1996, when I was 4, my parents purchased 97 acres in Paso Robles, CA.
Our farm is a vineyard. Yes, we have a tractor…it’s red. Yes, we have a shed, plow the rows and fields, and is located 20 minutes from the nearest grocery store. We have a 3-bedroom triple-wide on property, as we don’t live there full-time.
Although we have a ranch-hand, if you will, my dad has pretty much done a lot of the labor on his own. Talk about blood, sweat, and tears.
We have a .32. There are quail, owls, ground squirrels, and deer. This is a farm.

Here’s also some of my photography of Emerald Hills Vineyard. You can visit my photography page here, or the vineyard’s website here.
As a photographer, myself, I am constantly on the look-out for inspiration. Something that defies the boundaries or ordinary, and leaps into the realm of extraordinary.
Often times, in photography, we possess the ability to take something ordinary and turn it into the extraordinary. But what if you start with something extraordinary…what does that become? Unfathomable?
Regardless, thanks to Pinterest, I can keep my ‘inspirations’ in one place. Enjoy.
