Bella & Bailey | Prosper Equestrian | Equine Portraits

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!

Olivia & Alphie | Equestrian | Aubrey Equine Photographer

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.

2017 North Texas Equine Photography Workshop

The 2017 North Texas Equine Photography was held last May.  Had some great photographers attending and I love the photos they took.  The 3 day workshop was full of some great locations, beautiful models, both horse and human.  We all met Thursday evening for a meet & greet at Barley & Board located on the Denton Square.  We meet at one of my favorite Ranches, XO Ranch,  early Friday morning and photographed a young lady and her horse.  After lunch Friday we returned to my studio for some Lightroom and Photoshop tutorials.  Friday evening's shoot was just up the road and we had the opportunity to photograph a beautiful quarter horse stallion, mare and foals.  Along with a newly married bride in her wedding dress.  One of my equestrian models volunteered her time giving us one more subjects to photograph.  Saturday morning we headed north to Sebastian Petrols Reining Horses and shot some reining horses in action as well as some casual shots.  After lunch we did more classroom work at the studio.  Saturday evening we visited Sergeant Ranch in Pilot Point.  We photographed and Danish Warmblood and did black background photos and some Dressage photos.  The big treat was a half Friesian that was converted into a unicorn!  Sunday morning we had some rain (with lots of lightning) delays so we decided to grab breakfast first.  When the rain passed we went to Cardinal Ranch in Aubrey and photographed some mares and foals.  They put on a great show.  Our last stop was Dryden Ranch and we did some conformation and liberty photos.  I think all the attendees were tired when we were done, but come back with some great images and everyone learn a lot.  Not only from me, but from each other.  I started a Facebook group for them and everyone still keeps in contact giving tips, advice and words of encouragement. 
Upcoming workshops are coming up this fall and spring 2018.  Visit the Workshop page for more info.

Hannah | Senior 2017 | Weatherford Texas | Equine Photographer

I photographed Hannah and her horse Inviting Rumors "Shea"  at Dry River Ranch in Weatherford Texas and rides under the guidance of Stephen Stevens and Terry Cross .  Like many spring days in Texas, it was windy and humid. Hannah & Shea where great and handled it will. Hannah will be attending University of Georgia in the fall where she will be part of their Equestrian Team. Hannah asked the photos to show how much she loves Shea.  She made it easy, as they obviously have a great horse-human bond with each other. 

Claire | Allen Senior Photographer | Class of 2017

Claire is the 3rd Senior from Treeline Stables that I had the opportunity to photograph.  Once again we used the same locations as her 2 friends.  Claire's session started with a overcast sky, which I love to shoot in.   As well as being an avid equestrian, Claire also has a huge interest in photography and plans to study it in college. I loved that she understood a lot of what I was doing. 
 

Sam | Allen Senior 2017 | Equestrian Portraits

At her mother's suggestion we started Sam's session at The Adriatica Village in McKinney.  Sam included a couple of long time friends in her session and it made for a fun session.   Adriatica was the perfect location and even as we were leaving I was spotting areas I wish we had time to use.  Next stop was Sam's barn where she boards her horse, Fashionista "Surprize."  I could ask for 2 more beautiful subjects as well as the gorgeous sky we had that evening.

Sam is not only a talented in Hunter-Jumper competitions and school activities, but she is also a published writer. He book Under the Full Moon can be found on Amazon and at Barnes & Noble.

Courtney | Senior Portraits | Callisburg | Gainesville | Denton

So much fun with this session! Courtney brought her 2 horses she competes on plus her adorable mini horse.  We also did some super cute photos of her and her boyfriend; Kade.   We took her photos at Kade's family land.  The cattle there were very interested in what we were doing.  Kade's car as well as my ear getting up props was fascinating to them.

Courtney will be attending Texas A&M in the fall on a full equestrian scholarship.  She was very proud to show her maroon!
