10/09/2017 Portrait 0 Comments

Recently, Pat and Lou from Indogrow Farms enlisted my photography and branding help creating a fun, autumn marketing campaign for their vertical farming, microgreens business in South Jersey.

We had a lot of fun styling and getting creative with an autumnal, Halloween vibe. Pat made the gorgeous, modern art tableaus, while Lou and I were tossing pumpkins, skulls, and witches into every almost photo.

If you’re not yet familiar with microgreens, please check out some of the information below. The guys have converted me into a microgreen advocate and I use them in almost every meal. They also have a TON of tasty recipes on their site (I’ve listed one of my favorites below).

When asked about their photography experience with A. Rowan Photo, Pat and Lou said:

“We solicited the help of Adrian because of her diverse background in photography and her ability to take a vision and truly bring it to life.  Working with her was incredibly easy and collaborating with her was a wonderful experience.  There is no question why she is an internationally published photographer and we look forward to continue working with her in the future!”
