This beautiful VRBO, called The Heron House, was custom designed and much of the interior hand done by the owners themselves just down the street from their personal home! It has everything you need for an absolutely perfect weekend in the harbor. Located right on the water, you can wake up to fresh air and the chance to clam, fish, crab, bike, kayak and so much more. We went here with my family back in March and it had plenty of space for everyone to feel comfortable with three bathrooms, four bedrooms and a variety of mutual areas including ping pong int he garage and an awesome back deck with a view! If you need a getaway to San Juan Island, check this place out. There’s tons to do on the island as well including Krystal Acres Alpaca Farm, Suzie’s Mopeds, Palindaba Lavender and so much more! Treat yo’self!
Alluvial Farms was the first farm to hire me to photograph the entire process of setting up their dream farm. I met them before construction on the yurt they live in on the property, before the barn to house the pigs had ever started and long before the pigs had ever even arrived! The owners of Alluvial are kind, generous and incredibly devoted to providing the best pork possible. As their own site says: “Alluvial Farms raises heritage breed pastured pigs on organic pastures. Pigs have constant access to the outdoors as well as a big airy barn where they can nest down and stay cool in the summer, warm in the winter. We source piglets from a local breeder in Spanaway who meets a high standard of humane animal handling.”
It’s so clear how much they care about their pigs and providing them with comfort, food, water and the freedom to roam! We are working together on an on-going basis, but this session was specifically to highlight the progess they had made on their dream farm- yurt, start to a barn and little piggies! We even got some shots of them, doing their thing and loving their pigs. Plus, we took their delicious product, styled it and created a little recipe for them to recommend to their customers. YUM.
If you’re looking for natural, fresh, local pork- I really can’t recommend Alluvial Farms enough. Support your local farmers!
I am lucky enough to work with the fabulous Binyon Vision Clinic quarterly to help create content that keeps their social media feeds seasonal and up to date! This was our summer session featuring a local bike enthusiast and the nearly indestructible glasses he wears every day and the sun + regular daily glasses of a local toddler Mom!! Glasses are such a HUGE part of the lives of people that need them- it’s really fun to profile each person and the glasses they love. We also did some studio styling with fresh fruit, picnic supplies and sunflowers! Check out some of our other work together here!
I was SO thrilled when 1889 Washington Magazine reached out to me about doing a spotlight piece on Triple Wren Farms. They wanted to show off the family behind the farm, the team that makes all the magic happen and the BEAUTIFUL colors that grow all over the farm in the summer months. in addition to growing flowers, they do arrangements and consultations for weddings, offer an internship program and hold workshops to help teach and support other farmer-florists like themselves. Check out their feature in the 1889 Magazine or on their blog!!
