When Jenna first contacted me about a horse & rider portrait session with her and her horse, Gazoo, at the gorgeous Redfield Training, in Califon, NJ, she mentioned that she had just graduated from Berkeley! I went through the roof. Living out here in NJ I don’t meet many University of California alums, so YAY […]

Okay how gorgeous are these two? Jenna and Olive became a team last year and they’ve been full steam ahead ever since, schooling cross country, showing in jumpers, enjoying trail rides and lessons together. We had the most gorgeous weather and sunset the evening of our shoot – I couldn’t ask for better models or […]

While Jenna’s face may look familiar (I did a shoot with her and Kodak last summer), Paddy’s is new! Paddy is an off the track thoroughbred who was lucky enough to end up at Green Apple Stables this past year. When he’s not being ridden and pampered by Jenna, he spends time on trails, jumping, and […]

If PacMan looks familiar to you, it’s because he’s been featured on the blog before! He’s the gorgeous bay in the portraits of Maya Nakano, who had a feature in The Equestrians of Color Project AND The Plaid Horse! So, yeah – I guess that kinda makes him famous. Hopefully he won’t let it go […]

Thoroughbreds – the horses that capture our hearts. From racetracks to eventing trials and even Olympic games, the OTTB (off the track thoroughbred, for any non-horse people who have found themselves here) is one of the most ubiquitous and recognizable horse breeds. Many of my clients own and love an OTTB, and for good reason […]

So the other day, Facebook freaked out and user were unable to view photos/images while using Facebook. Subsequently people freaked out over Facebook freaking out, and then everyone was just panicked, and that’s never a good time. Because think about it – what if Facebook and Instagram freaked out – permanently – and you lost […]

Most people, when faced with a weather that forecasts for snow, run and hide. And generally, I can be counted in that group of people! I’m from CA – I literally didn’t see falling snow until I was 26 YEARS OLD. I realize that’s not normal, but that’s the truth. And now that I’ve lived […]
