Bolshoi | Black Background Equine Portrait

Liam and I went out to Cedarcrest Farm in Hiram, GA one morning to photograph black background portraits of Bolshoi. Julie wanted to have some photos as a gift for his owner. He is sweet as he is handsome, and prefers to suck on peppermints rather than chew them (which is the funniest thing to watch). I think the best part of this session was that I hung around talking with Julie after the photos were taken while Liam played around the barn. I got to hear all about how she was a professional rider before she took time off to raise her kids and is now back to riding. One of the core values of my business is connection and I love how this session sums it up perfectly: the connection of horse and rider, owner and rider, owner and horse, and how they all care for each other so deeply as well as an effortless connection between myself and Julie that we wanted to hang out chatting after the session.

And, just because he's so cute. Here's my little helper waiting patiently while I took Bolshoi's photos!
