The Daum Family || Sunset Session at Bea Hive Farm

  • Oct 22, 2019

A dream of any photographer is to have their own space to photograph. For some, it’s a studio. Others prefer a room in their home, dedicated to portraits. Tracie, of Tracie Bea Photographie, bought a farmstead. 

Taking the leap and moving from the urban hustle to the wide open quiet of rural Minnesota required bravery and a little blind hope. Tracie, her husband and their three kids have since welcomed two horses, a pig, several ducks, geese & chickens, cats, and a rooster. 

During the session, I asked Tracie how she knew to care for animals and if she’d had experience. Having never lived on a farm, she said they just figured it out. (I love that mentality!)

Tracie’s goal for our session was to document the children running the farm through daily chores and to update the artwork on her walls. 

Back to the photographer’s dream space, this farm is IT. Beautiful structures, sprawling prairies, abundant trees and sunset down a long desolate road – I was in heaven!

Tracie is kind enough to rent out her dream space to fellow photographers looking for it all. I’m very grateful for the opportunity to shoot at Bea Hive Farm. If you’re a photographer, I highly recommend renting it!
