When I first got the call from Anna's mom she explained to me that Ice is an older horse, and they want pictures with him soon since he's getting older. Going to the session I expected an old tired horse, and I honestly expected to brought to tears thinking this horse wasn't going to be around for much longer. However, Ice may be old in age, but he is young in spirit! I smiled so much during this session because watching Anna and Ice interact is exactly the type of relationship every owner wants with their horse. Here's the crazy thing, Anna hasn't owned Ice for very long and bought him knowing that he was retired and couldn't be ridden anymore. This girl, and her mom, have hearts like no other!
I'm trying to catch up on blogging. It's terrible, this session is from last summer! But, anyways, I love when seniors want their horses in their senior pictures! Horses become such a big part of our lives that it only makes sense to include them in major milestones. :) Natalie and her mom are two of the nicest people you could ever meet. I had just as much fun chatting with them as I did taking pictures. :)
I'm excited to finally post another session! It seems like forever since I've shared one. I've been busy shooting sessions and working with Style My Ride. (I can't wait to share those pictures!) Kristen and Willy and are friends from my former barn. (Fresno moved to his retirement home, a.k.a. my best friend's farm, last weekend.) Willy is a spoiled OTTB - notice his OTTB halter - who truly has the life! Kristen will spend hours each week grooming Willy, and her hard work pays off. His coat is beautiful! See for yourself!
