Love and Adventure At Ryan Farm

I took a preliminary bicycle trip a few weeks ago to test my physical limitations and my loaded bicycle. I Made my way to San Juan Island to visit my friends Brady and Leah to relax and shoot a Love and Adventure documentary session with them. Believe me when I say Brady and Leah live their lives more passionately than any one else I know. I have so much respect for what they are doing; it is truly inspirational to see them pouring their hearts into their projects on Ryan Farm. Brady keeps busy making sea salt with sea water sourced right from the southern shores of San Juan Island. He also keeps bees for honey and pollen collection. Leah spends her time tending to her flower gardens and keeping the farm pups occupied. Using flowers from her very own gardens on Ryan Farm, she arranges pieces for homes all over the greater Seattle area, as well as arrangements for Events and Weddings. She also recently finished her tiny home project. The Tiny home now sits overlooking Ryan Farm and the rest of San Juan Valley.

I had an incredible time shooting these photos and adventuring around with Brady and Leah. They opened their hearts and Tiny Home to me, and for that I am forever grateful. You can learn more about the operations at Ryan Farm by following these links:

    These are some of the Day in the Life type documentary images I’ve seen. Kudos! Also, I think you get bonus points for shooting with the bees buzzing! 😉

    Your website is superb and your logo excellent! My husband and I have property on Kanaka Bay and enjoyed all your photographs. Unfortunately we don ‘t make to San Juan as often as we would like.. Congratulations on being published in Coastal Living. I will process an order soon.
