Sampson’s portraits

A few weeks ago I had a chance to do a portrait session for a beautiful horse. There has always been a part of me that loves horses, and it was so amazing to have a chance to be so up close and personal to Sammie. This was so much fun! I hope there are more opportunities like this in my future!






(I know it is not proper to post a photo of the subject sticking their tongue out…similar to posting that photo of the toddler picking their nose or something…but this photo just made me giggle so much this week! I love it!)



Sneak peek: Sampson!

It is not every day that I get asked to do portraits of a horse, but I’m starting to wish that would happen more often!

Last Saturday I was up and out the door quite early for a photo shoot with this handsome guy:


Sampson (Sammie for short). He was sweet, and cooperative (with the promise of breakfast after). I learned a lot about horses and their behaviors and temperaments, boarding facilities, different ways to ride, and how much they love to eat grass. Sammie’s human, Tony, was very kind and willing to share his knowledge!

I sorted through photos from our session last night, and I am almost giddy to start working on them!

Best. Job. Ever.
