Ranch Raised Kids is a tribute to the children we met on the vast rugged ranches of Arizona. In 2016 we photographed many families in Yavapai and Coconino Counties. We hope these images will show people outside the ranching community how these dynamic and talented children are being raised. In 2017 we are travelling through southern and eastern Arizona meeting and photographing another twenty families. If you are raising ranch kids, or want to recommend a family for this project, please get in touch with Charlie
We are currently seeking sponsors to enable us to complete the photography in Arizona and produce a book in 2017 that provides a comprehensive context for each child’s words. If your organization or company would like to partner with us please contact
. We plan to exhibit the work in and beyond Arizona to show others the adaptive strength of the ranching heritage.

Please enjoy the pictures and the thoughts of these Ranch Raised Kids. We hope you too can hear in their words their deep, unshakeable love of cattle, horses, the work and the land. We are so proud to know them.
We plan to attend the events listed at right. Please say hello!
