Photography Details
When you arrive, you will find designated parking for you + your guests. The Shoppe has a restroom/changing room that you may use.

We do not book more than one photographer at a time. We know having an extra set of hands is always nice. If your assistant is simply helping you with props, lighting or styling your clients, there is no additional photography charge. However, if your assistant is using a camera and/or taking photos alongside you, we kindly request they pay our photography rate, too.
We think furry friends make life sweeter, and they are always welcome. Our one request is that they are on a leash. Our chickens get very excited when meeting new friends, and we would hate for all of our animal friends to be too busy socializing to be photographed.

We would LOVE for you to take full advantage of all our farm has to offer. Seasonally, you will find the greenhouse staged, and we kindly ask that all decor + props belonging to Rose Farm be regarded with care.

We get VERY excited to see your work social media! The Des Moines area has the most outstanding photography talent. Our most popular hashtag is #rosefarmstead. You will also see us sharing your photos in our social media stories + post.
