Rachael | Equestrian Portraits | Kansas

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.
