Sarah Darnell Photographer

Wildlife Photographer at Rectory Farm

I met Sarah Darnell at the Creake Abbey Summer Craft Fair 2021. She had an amazing stand, selling her very professional wildlife greeting cards.
Sarah is a Norfolk based photographer specialising in wildlife, the beautiful landscape & countryside activities of the county.
We got chatting and I invited her to take some photographs of my goats.

Audrey has her own mind, when she doesnt want to do something you know about it!!!

Goat Inspiration – Witten by www.izzirainey.com

I had a great time meeting Zoe’s herd of dairy goats, I was really looking forward to getting back to the studio and looking through the photographs I had taken. The British Alpine and British Toggenburg’s are really striking with their facial markings and I know will look great in a print. I have drawn Zoe’s British Alpine’s before and I know that their monochrome colouring works really well in a print, The logo that I created for Zoe is of one of British Alpine’s and it is really eye catching!

I am really pleased with how the final prints turned out, I think they are really bold and eye catching. It won’t be long until I will be ready to complete a second ‘Over The Farm Gate’ card collection and I think these will look great on greetings cards.

I would like to say another BIG thank you to Zoe for taking the time to introduce me to her goats.
