About Me

My Photo
Great Falls, Montana, United States
I love creating art. I love the Creator! And through that love, I find a little slice of heaven on earth and I give Him all the glory! It's a great adventure and I'm excited to see what's around the bend! Come join me, won't you?

The Swan Ranch


A place I delight to go and visit.  The Swan Ranch.

 A wide-open yard frames the Mountains.
A raw beauty all it's own.
They do enjoy a quaint garden and  wide open spaces right from their yard, and every window of their home.  

Husband and wife work side by side. It's "The Home Place" where generations have lived; children are married.  

 Friends gather, come rain or shine, branding or vaccinations... or weddings!
Daughter Kirsten's dream wedding on the Ranch
A tradition of coming together to make a Life.  Or  begin a new one.

Celebrations!
John and Son David Schipf
 And lovely snapshots of the country girls all dressed up.
Rachel and Katie
And of friends who come alongside to lend a helping hand...  
My sweet husband
A hard-working, heritage-rich, piece of good ol' Montana ranch land... cattle country.
Charolais cross calves
Calves are so much fun to photograph. So curious. 
 And they will come to you... real close... if you are patient and still, waiting for just the right moment... LOVE those eyelashes.  I want them!
The helpers bring them down to the corrals...
Making a life from the land. And more.  Much more.
I thank God for John and Annette.  Amen.
