Christy H | equine portrait session

August 14th, 2012

Fellow photographer Christy asked me to do a session with her and her appaloosa gelding, Tonka, and I of COURSE jumped at the chance! Originally this was to be a bit of a bridal session, but Christy’s poor wedding dress suffered a bit of a cat-induced calamity. (thank goodness she’s already married!) We just went […]

Originally this was to be a bit of a bridal session, but Christy’s poor wedding dress suffered a bit of a cat-induced calamity. (thank goodness she’s already married!) We just went with a good old portrait session, early on a July morning – earrrrrly (before the heat) but you can see just how gorgeous morning light is! Thanks for having me out Christy, and I might just take you up on going riding sometime soon! 🙂

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….)

St. Louis Equestrian Center Hanoverian Inspections

July 18th, 2010

I shot this event last year as well, which I truly enjoy despite the fact I get up at 2:45am to start the trek across the state to get there in time :). This is the American Hanoverian Society inspections held at the St. Louis Equestrian Center – this annual event (part of a national […]

 

I shot this event last year as well, which I truly enjoy despite the fact I get up at 2:45am to start the trek across the state to get there in time :). This is the American Hanoverian Society inspections held at the St. Louis Equestrian Center – this annual event (part of a national tour) is an important part of the process of registering foals as well as inspecting mares and stallions for approval and conducting performance tests. It is very interesting to watch, let alone photograph!
