The other week I had a chance to do pictures at Midnight Farms in Westminster, Maryland. I’ve been wanting to do lifestyle farm photos for awhile so I reached out to Shane and Alison. While I was there I got to photograph them working with the cattle. As they fed the cows their kids were busy playing and there was so much to capture. It was a lot of fun hanging out with them and getting a glimpse into what they do.
Here is a little bit from Shane about Midnight Farms – “I’ve always dreamed of farming since I was a kid. Bought my first cow when I was 10. Had a few since and then after I graduated college in 2015 I started buying more cows and old equipment to become self sufficient. Then expanded and upgraded equipment over the years to get where I am now.”
He hopes to keep growing so that way one day he has an operation for his son, Bentley, to take over. Right now he runs a cow calf operation and is working to grow the heard. He raises the steer cattle for beef. They are grass fed for the first year and then are corn fed after that. Shane really loves what he does and even during these trying times for farmers he says that he wouldn’t trade it for anything.
I really enjoyed taking these photos and am really excited to continue to build my portfolio in lifestyle farm photography. Thanks again to Midnight Farms for having me out!
