Meet Ammie and this lovely and fun little jumper mare, Ariel. These two were a joy to photograph and I'm so grateful we were blessed with a warm day, spring colors, and the perfect amount of clouds for shooting out in the open. View more images from the session here on my Facebook page.
I enjoyed working with this lovely, kind family for our evening horse and family photo session out at Zephyrs Way Stable in Powhatan.
I am always a bit nervous picking times for evening sessions since our weather has been all over the place this month, but golden hour worked out perfectly for us this weekend. It helps when you have great models, too!
I have known Maddy for several years through riding, so this session was a little extra-special since I got to picture her with her first horse--she found Zidane D last fall after a long search, and they seem to be getting along wonderfully.
It's been a while since I have done an evening shoot--I have had a lot of early-morning sessions lately, so it was great to get out in this warm sunset light!
I love these shots we got in this gorgeous morning light setting! Sometimes the boring back half of a pasture can be kind of magical if you seek out the right kind of light.
Sometimes all you need is a cedar tree in a pasture to create some magical light. I enjoyed capturing these two--posing for the camera was easy for them since they are buddies! See the whole Spring Equine Portraits album on Facebook.
