We first met Sam Lamb as neighboring booths at a local craft fair. Turns out we have a lot in common with Miss. Lamb and we have enjoyed our random run-ins ever since. Not only does she have an eye for truly breathtaking photographs but we we’re amazed to meet another creative who lives on a farm (with cows, horses, and chickens)! She genuinely enjoys the simple things that make life so sweet and has a joyous heart that makes you feel all warm and tingly inside. It’s the kind that makes you want to sit back, count the clouds, and sip a glass of sun soaked tea reeeeaaal slow.
Q) How did you get started?
A) I wanted to capture my grandparents farm in the way that I saw it and people, to my surprise, enjoyed my captures. From there, the morning light had my full and lovely attention.
Q) What about your lifestyle inspires your work and makes it better?
A) Ooohhh my goodness gracious….everything my dears. I live on a full fledged farm, so there is no division of my lifestyle and my inspiration. I am happier than a peach!!
Q) Why do you choose to live in the country?
A) The Mornings…….I live next to lovely pastures and I have two amazing barns….one in which I keep a milk cow, in which I milk by hand twice a day. I can plant an acre large garden and share that bounty with all of my loved ones. This would not be possible in the city. Plus, the farm is a well-spring of inspiration and I am obedient to my inspiration.

Birdie is at it’s most perfect in the spring. Fresh flowers fill the space and Katie, the owner and a fourth generation florist, is always busy creating awe inspiring arrangements and wonderful bouquets for local weddings and other spring events.
“I LOVED growing up in the back of the flower shop. They had a little wedding consultation area at the old shop, where my girlfriends and I would look through all the bridal books and dream up our weddings! The greenhouses were a pretty magical place too. Looking out on a sea of red poinsettias at Christmas is super pretty.” -Katie
