I recently did a family photography session that included the family’s horse. We met at the barn where their horse was, and after doing a series of family portraits on location (without the horse), it was time to bring her in from the pasture.
Well, needless to say, since it was December, and on the warmer side, it was a little muddy. My client took some time to brush off the dried mud, and then I had her walk up and down this stretch of ground between two of the barns. I love capturing moments between animals and their people. And this one is one of my favorites. The fog lends an ethereal quality to the scene too.
Of course, with horses, one of the challenges is that most startle at a camera’s flash. The same was true of this beauty. So, we concluded the session with another series that included the whole family.
