Welcome! Hi!  I’m Beth, the wife and mom behind the camera as well as the main voice here on One Strange Herd.
BMC_5983Working behind the camera and managing a blog is familiar territory.  However, for the past 3 years my subject matters were dogs!  Before that it was everything from newborns to high school seniors and weddings. The decision to close my business last summer was a toughy, yet one I’ve never looked back on. springer spaniel
stellaThis new adventure of photographing food is challenging, exciting, messy, fun, and downright comical at times!  Sounds like life to me. I’ve been an avid food blog follower for years.  My daughter and I had the priviledge to meet Ree Drummond, aka Pioneer Woman, when she was in Cincinnati last year.  TOTAL highlight of my year (complete with a fuzzy iPhone photo!)

One Strange Herd is a saying we regularly use in our home.  It’s from the original Ice Age movie.  After Manfred the Wooly Mammoth courageously saves Diego (who weren’t the best of friends) he asks “why did you do that?”  You could have died trying to save me.” Humbly, Manfred responds, “That’s what you do when you’re part of a herd. You look after each other.” Amazed at the circumstances that brought these three together, Sid the sloth their goofy friend says:
 “I don’t know about you guys, but we are one strange herd.”

We’re a family with lots of different personalities, quirks, ideas, and tastes.  We laugh often and love deeply…even if we might look a little strange at times.  I thank God daily for the family he’s given me.

Join me as I share recipes and stories from our kitchen and beyond.
