I love when I have repeat clients. It's an honor to capture a family, and even more so, when you entrust me year after year. And I really love when those clients have fun ideas like having photos with horses! This session was so much fun, and so different then the regular session, of course because there were horses! It was pretty special to see how much the kids loved being around the horses, but I really loved watching mom with her horse. What a special bond. This girl was a pro! And you could tell she was most at ease on her horse (she even pretended to take a nap on her at one point)! It was like watching every young girl's dream of owning a horse. But don't let that fool you, she followed every rule, worked hard to keep good form when riding, and took great pride and care of her horse.This fellow has grown so much since the last time I photographed him. And yet, he still had the slightly shy, but goofy personality. He didn't mind having photos with horses either. Look at him all snuggled up with this "little" lady.Of course we had to take some family shots too. I always love how playful dad and the kids shots are. What is better then tickles by dad?!Love these two together! Though my favorite was a sneak peek already. See it here!What a beautiful girl with a beautiful smile. And don't you love how mom's presence is there, but not overpowering? These are my favorite types of shots, with us mom's in the photo, but not front and center. Because we are always there in the background for support, letting our kids shine! Even after I tell the kids I'm all done shooting, I like to keep my camera out, watching for moments like this one. We had just finished up the family shots and she couldn't wait to get the saddle back on her horse and ride. A quiet moment showing how she did everything to get her horse ready.
Thank you for inviting me to meet your entire family! I loved capturing your new passion as it is what your family is about right now!
