"What do you mean, you only photograph horses?"
—Most people, after I tell them I don't offer traditional family/wedding/couples photography
Why do I only photograph horses & their people?
Because I believe a connection between those in front of and behind the camera is essential.
I don't personally know the joys or struggles of parenthood, so I can't offer that fundamental connection to a mother looking for family photos. What I do know is that your horse, whether it's your champion show horse or the pony you grew up on, holds an enormous part of your heart.
Because I get you.
I get that you would rather muck a stall than clean your kitchen. I know the smell of leather and grain makes your soul smile. I know your heart swells up a little when your horse nickers at you from down the aisle. I've tasted dirt after a fall, and I've felt butterflies right before stepping into the show ring. We horse people are a very specific breed, and we're kinda strange to anyone who doesn't get it.
Because when it comes to art, passion is everything.
I want to deliver you the best of the best, and that happens when I'm really passionate about who or what I photograph *cough* horses *cough*. You will see me get genuinely giddy at our session (inevitably there will be several occasions where I yell something along the lines of "THIS IS IT! THIS IS THE SHOT!")
Because I wish I could go back and have photos of me and my heart horse.
I think it's SO important to have beautiful, timeless images of your horse. This is what drives me. I have some pictures of my big guy, Lenardo, but they're mostly snapshots. All these years later, he still makes up a huge part of who I am, and I wish I had photos to do that justice. I believe YOU should have those photos.
So, fellow horse person, what are you waiting for?
We've got a lot to talk about (mostly horse-related.) Let's get in touch.
