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.

Miranda is as sweet as she is pretty! Had so much fun with this girl, her horse and family. Her horse, Reese, is a rescue from The Pegasus Project in McKinney Texas and they have a incredible connection. Miranda attends Prestonwood Christian Academy and plans on attending Texas A&M. Senior pictures with your horse is one of my favorite sessions to do and Miranda & Reese’s session help make it that way!

I think photos are some of the best presents and that is what Erin planned to do with the images from her session. The photo session was intended to be a present for her boyfriend, but I am sure she used this for much more. I loved how they turned out. It was rather windy so we started out doing black background photos 1st. Them did some outside with her two horses and three dogs. Did some horse and rider portraits where she wanted to show her bond with her horse Can Do. Check out her fabulous belt in those photos! Being a Christmas present of course we did some Christmas Wreath photos!
I did Emily's family portraits several years ago and was honored that they had me bad to photograph her senior pictures. I loved all the outfits that she had chosen for her session and Sheila with Horse Show Makeup Artist did her hair and makeup. Emily agreed to do a early morning session and the light was fantastic. Much of the session was done at their neighbors by beautiful stock tank and in their backyard by a wonderful natural looking pool. We then returned to her home do do some of her senior photos with her horse, Vinny. Vinny is an Appaloosa that has tons personality. Vinny is fairly new to Emily and they plan on showing soon.

Another beautiful morning session! Couldn't have asked for a better day for Bailey's session. It was a little cool, but it was a relief from the hot summer-like days we have been having. We did Bailey & Bella's equestrian photoshoot at Prospering Farms in Prosper, Texas, where she boards Bella. Bailey came out ready to go in super cute dress leading Bella. Bella was a grey almost white horse, but was clean & shiney! Having owned and currently owning horses of this color, I know how much work it takes. We started out at the treeline since we had such beautiful morning light. After a couple clothing changes, we moved to the barn door aisle and did some black background portraits. We did some great equine portraits of Bella as well. Always great to have some fine art to hang in your house that is of something you love!

Anelise won a gift certificate I donated to the North Texas Fair Horse Show. Her session was scheduled they day after she returned from the Texas State 4H Horse Show. All recommend doing sessions following a show since your horse is clipped, cleanand tired. Addy was well- behaved, but still very attentive. Both were great to work with.

Olivia's mom contacted me to photograph her daughter, Olivia and Olivia's horse, Alphie. She also wanted some images of Alphie to use as wall art in her home. She has seen some art pieces that she loved, but wanted their horse rather than someone else's horse hanging in their house. I thought that was a wonderful idea. Olivia competes regularly in North Texas Hunter Jumper shows with Alphie. We did her equestrian portraits as well as Alphie's equine photos where he is boarded at KB Ranch in Aubrey Texas.
I did Rachael's portraits with her horses; Merida, Bentley and Willa at her family's farm near Russell Kansas. There farm was in a beautiful part of Kansas and was in a very peaceful location. There was one of coolest barns I have ever seen. A old stone barn converted into a unique rustic show barn. I was greeted by Rachael and her many pug dog, her mom called her the "pug whisperer." She had all three of her horses ready to go as well as getting herself ready. She showed a few locations that she thought would work for photos. A pasture by the side of hill, a tree-lined arena and alfalfa field. It was slightly overcast and all worked perfectly. One of my favorite photos from the session was a candid of Rachael leading 2 of the horses with a handful of tack and several of her pugs tagging along. It summed up her hands on approach and hard work ethic perfectly. Personally I would of tripped over a leadrope or something if I tried to handle all that.
Mattie is one of my equestrian models for 2017. Mattie and her horse Guns R Spooky "Avatar" have been having a great year and I am always seeing their names pop up winning many titles in Reining. Including a recent World Championship at the AQHYA World Show in Oklahoma Texas.
Mattie trains under the guidance of Deary Performance Horses in Weatherford Texas. Mattie had some great images and already has been on the cover of CR World Magazine.
