Family farm, barn, field, storm clouds, boots and HORSES – this session was a dream!
I’ve known the Richard’s since high school when Shelby and I became friends. This is th second time I’ve photographed them – a gift for Dad! – and it’s always a pleasure. I mean c’mon, look how gorgeous this family is! We just beat the rain by a couple of minutes, it made for the perfect sky and lighting. Everyone wants a beautiful clear blue sky on photo day, but in reality an overcast day is the best kind of day. No squinting, no shadows, perfect! When Dad mentioned including the Draft Horses I was all for it! Aren’t they beautiful?!??
This portrait session is one that is near and dear to my heart. A few months ago I came up with an idea for a stylized session. I posted on my Facebook page that I was looking for someone with both horses and young children. Sandra was so kind to give me complete creative freedom over her beautiful daughter Grace, as well as her gorgeous horses, Candy and Sunny.
I leave a little bit of who I am behind in every portrait session, which is what makes them one of a kind. But every once in a while I get the chance to put my entire heart into a project and leave behind a piece of my soul. As an artist it is incredible to see an idea come to life before your eyes.
There are so many amazing photographs from this session, they turned out even better than I imagined! Grace is such a beautiful girl!
This is definitely one of my favourites!
Who doesn’t love a red-haired, freckle faced girl!
Sessions like this one keep me in love with photography! It is my dream to stylize all of my portrait sessions; to fully express each child’s personality and keep them personal and unique!
