If you don’t know me…. then you don’t know that I am absolutely horse obsessed and have been since I was 9. I love all kinds of photography, but horses are near and dear to my heart. Jillian and I have been friends for a long time. We grew up riding together. When she called to ask if I would do headshots for her of the girl who would be leasing her horse, Carter, for the show season, I of course jumped at the chance.
Before we even started, I had to take this adorable photo of Carter ‘Simbar Airs’. He was waiting on the crossties for his big moment and looked oh-so-handsome!
Then the photo shoot began!
Towards the end, Carter was very close to having enough of this whole photo shoot thing. To fix this, snowballs were an easy fix. He was fascinated by the snow falling in front of him.
Needless to say, I a) had the hardest time picking photos to share, b) can’t wait to watch this team during the upcoming show season and c) look forward to taking many more headshots of horse/rider teams to come!
