As many of you know….. I’m a horse person! Megan & I met at Chocolate Horse Farm, the barn where both of us ride and board horses. She was graduating from Sonoma State University and wanted to have some photographs done to commemorate this special occasion.
Megan and I have a lot in common ,we’re both animal lovers! Her lovely horses are DeMello ( Chesnut Oldenburg) and Zeke (Bay) a thoroughbred rescued off the track and dogs Max (Sheperd X) and Mikka (???)
I asked her at the time of our consultation if she wanted to attempt ALL of the together…… well that was a dumb question! Of course! I laughed a bit knowing how hard it is to deal with one animal let alone FOUR! We shot on a secluded hill behind our barn. This beautiful spot is up a very steep hill and has always inspired me with it’s many oak and buckeye trees that have Spanish moss dripping off of them, a rock wall that’s at least 150 years old and beautiful light most times of the day. Apparently the Indians that once lived there used this spot as a lookout.
The shoot was PERFECT! Megan looked BEAUTIFUL! I usually see her in full riding attire, not that she doesn’t look great in that too. The animals cooperation was INCREDIBLE! It was supernatural the way they minded to get the shot below with all four of them. I felt a little bit like we hit a home run! Thanks for choosing me to shoot your photos Megan, and giving me a chance to do what I love !
