Jamie R | an equine-themed senior session

September 25th, 2012

What an awesome session this was. Of course whenever someone wants to work their horse into their portrait session, I’m all over it! Jamie was one of those clients. We had an absolutely amazing evening with amazing light and her horse was absolutely the best behaved, most cooperative horse I’ve EVER shot (and that is […]

 

What an awesome session this was. Of course whenever someone wants to work their horse into their portrait session, I’m all over it! Jamie was one of those clients. We had an absolutely amazing evening with amazing light and her horse was absolutely the best behaved, most cooperative horse I’ve EVER shot (and that is saying a lot as I have photographed a LOT of horses!). Enjoy the images and this gorgeous fall weather!

Becki and Jett: equine portrait session | Baldwin City, Kansas

October 17th, 2010

Becki was the high bidder on a portrait session I donated last summer for a benefit dinner to help raise money to send young dressage rider Emily Wagner and her stallion WakeUp to Germany to compete in the World Young Horse Championships. I was so happy to help Emily out even if in a small […]

 

Becki was the high bidder on a portrait session I donated last summer for a benefit dinner to help raise money to send young dressage rider Emily Wagner and her stallion WakeUp to Germany to compete in the World Young Horse Championships. I was so happy to help Emily out even if in a small way! Becki had me come to her farm near Baldwin City, Kansas and do a session of her and her arabian Jett (SHR Rose Maker). I pulled up and thought I was looking at my old horse Rex – so I asked about his breeding, and sure enough, when Becki emerged from the house with his papers, his breeding closely resembled that of my old horse that I grew up showing in dressage and owned for 19 years until his death at 27 years of age in 2006. Jett of course is much younger! Becki’s farm was a gorgeous backdrop for our early morning shoot, and Jett was a trouper, giving us his attention FAR longer than most equine subjects do!

LD Val-Dron | equine portrait session

August 22nd, 2010

Every year as a favor to my mom I document her grand old horse, LD Val-Dron in a photo session. He is going quite strong still at the grand old age of 29. He is the son of National Champion stallion *Padron and out of a *Bask daughter – *Bask was one of the most […]

 

Every year as a favor to my mom I document her grand old horse, LD Val-Dron in a photo session. He is going quite strong still at the grand old age of 29. He is the son of National Champion stallion *Padron and out of a *Bask daughter – *Bask was one of the most prolific, and influential, horses of the Arabian breed. Our family has owned Val-Dron since he was 7 years old. My mom has grown VERY attached to him over the years. Despite the fact he got a little wild and broke away from my mom while we were shooting (galloping like a madman all the way back to the barn…), we had a lot of fun putting this shoot together and I hope I get to photograph him for a few years to come yet. 🙂

We also took a handful of shots with my sister Stacey and her retired show mare, BA Foxfire+++// (for non-horse people, the “+s” and “/s” denote the amount of wins over her show career – basically, a boatload. A BIG boatload)

I hardly ever, if at all, shoot horse shows anymore – but I LOVE doing equine portrait sessions and farm shoots. So….if you want shots like these of your favorite equine family member, give me a call or email before coats start thickening up and growing for winter! (believe me, we are just a few WEEKS away from that….)
