Hello! And welcome to my hive!
Here are some sample images taken recently at our Minnetrista hobby farm. (various photographers credited)
Our ten acre hobby farm is located just west of Excelsior, MN in charming Minnetrista. It’s a little piece of rural life just blocks off Halstead Bay in Lake Minnetonka, complete with rolling hills, charming barn & fences, horses and farm animals and more!
This is general information for families coming with their own photographer.
A few more things….
- Our ten acre hobby farm is located just west of Excelsior, MN in Minnetrista. It’s a charming drive through stables, rural land and rolling hills. It’s a lovely drive. There is plenty of parking available, but please enter the farm slowly, and watch for feathers and kids.
- The old red farmhouse on the property is my business studio, and where you should park.
At the moment my studio is completing renovation, and will open momentarily.
Unfortunately, there is no public restroom available, yet. Semi-private changing areas are in the barn if needed.
- I am a full time professional photographer, sharing my space with you. This is also our family home, and a working farm. Mud, bugs, and stepping in squishy things are to be expected. Bring bug spray if needed, and if you’re wearing heels, I suggest a pair of walking shoes too.
- Currently our critter collection consists of big white Pekin ducks (and one grey one), friendly & whimsical geese and chickens, a white Arabian pony and a very friendly star of the show, Kevin, the big red retired racehorse. Please do not chase or tackle the animals. and under NO circumstances is anyone to enter the horse corral. My expert little assistant can be hired to wrangle on request; she works for candy.
