This was a tough session for Katy, she was in the process of selling Ziegler and realized she never had photos with him. We did a quick session, she wanted some images of both of them together and some of just him. He was with her trainer at KB Ranch in Aubrey Texas when we did the session the trees did not have many leaves yet. I knew KB Ranch had plenty cedar trees so I tried to utilize . those for the background. In between the time when we took the photos and when we met to view the photos, Katy sold Zielger and I could tell she missed him as the tears welled up in her eyes. I have to admit, I did the same. I have been there, selling a horse is never easy no matter the reason. Ziegler is beautiful and loud colored American Paint Horse with tons of personality, so I can understand why the tears.

This session was a mixture of several different sessions. We did Alexa's senior portraits, since her sister; Justine did not have senior portraits done, so we also did some of her. We also combined a family session in as well. The location of the shoot was at one of my favorite North Texas Ranches, XO Ranch in Aubrey Texas. Both girls are accomplished equestrians, one with a little more western style and the other competes in eventing. Alexa had a beautifully marked APHA named Razzle and Justine had a sorrel AQHA named Tyler.
