I first met Rachelle and John from Marion Acres in Portland, Oregon through Instagram. Some people might not know this but I have an Instagram account where I post photos of my chickens (@portlandchickens) and that's how we found each other. I moved to Portland, Oregon a year and a half ago and we were looking for organic eggs and meat for our family and I noticed we were following each other. They have a small farm near us and we purchased eggs from them until our chickens finally started laying.
Over this past year we've gotten to know them and most recently worked on a collaboration between them and Danner Boots. While on their farm, I couldn't pass up the opportunity to photograph these two. They are salt-of-the-earth type of people, kind and genuine and Rachelle basically has the nicest hair I think I've ever seen.... and just our luck, the sun came out to give us the most gorgeous golden hour for the shoot too. Give them a follow if you are on your mobile phone. @marionacres
