at the ranch

7 days of living here, 4 horses, 1 dead black widow, 1 barn owl, 2 beautiful farm boys, 1 fabulous mom, 1 dad who will be excited to see these, lots of cool hats, 1 awesome greenhouse, 10 amazing acres. I feel like the luckiest girl in the world, I got to visit the ranch and photograph this beautiful family a couple of weeks ago…
















M and family, thank you for welcoming me into your magical lives…the experience is still with me. I look forward to coming to visit again soon! All my Love, J

    Wow! Was that only after a week of living there? It’s been almost three now, and I feel like I’ve been there forever. Maybe time is lost there. Thank you, Jo Ann, for sharing your time and talents with us. I can’t wait to fill the ranch walls with the photos. We need art — and here it is!
