Our next pair in the Senior Horse Project, Rachelle & Polly. These ladies have such an interesting, layered story because it spans multiple generations. Rachelle has raised two of Polly’s babies, Teddy and Jasper, at her farm Ponyz on the Rockz. Rachelle’s hat is sentimental in these images – she had some past pictures of […]

The second pair in the Senior Horse Project series is Allison & Maverick! I was SO excited for Allison’s session with her horse Maverick at Robin Hill Farm in Pittstown, NJ. While Maverick was Allison’s first baby, her second (and first human!) baby was going to join us for the shoot as well! It was […]

While my Senior Horse Project has been a long time in the making, I can honestly say it’s been one of the most rewarding, satisfying things I’ve ever done. I started this project at the end of 2019, thinking that be able to share these stories and portraits with you by the end of the […]

Did you rescue your horse and give them a second chance at life? If you rescued or purchased your horse from a kill pen/kill buyer, feedlot, or neglectful environment or adopted a horse from a rescue organization that removed your horse from a bad situation, let’s tell your horse’s story. I’m looking for individuals in […]

While 2020 was a bizarre, unsettling, and fine, I’ll say it – “unprecedented” – year, there were certainly a few bright spots, and working on my 2020 passion project, the Senior Horse project, was one of those bright spots. We also had a bit of a late start due to the stay-at-home order and mandatory […]

I know I’m only like, a year behind on my blogging (!), but I feel like Ann and Munchkin were worth the wait, don’t you?! Ann was Mrs. New Jersey 2019, and we did these portraits shortly before she competed for the title of Mrs. America 2019. It’s been so fun to follow along with […]

Brace yourself for some major girl power. No, like, literally – these 3 mares are incredibly powerful and it’s an added bonus that they’re all drop dead gorgeous! From left to right – Lilly, Cali, and Flicka. Lilly and Flicka were home bred at BDR Legacy Farm in Lambertville, NJ (Lilly is Cali’s baby), but […]

Dapples for dayyyyyys – how gorgeous is Hhemlock? She literally GLOWED. I always love working with dressage horses because they’re so easy to square up for their portrait session! Also the bling – gotta love the bling. Hhemlock’s mom Jennifer purchased this session at Mane Stream’s Boots on the Boardwalk auction to support and benefit […]

Cute rider? Check. Cute shadbelly for cute rider? Check. Cute PONIES for cute rider? CHECK!! Get ready for major pony faces. Since I’m a horrible procrastinator and these portraits were taken in summer 2019, not all of these ponies are still being ridden by Lotus, but last summer they were! And they were cute! We […]

When I return home from your portrait session, I CANNOT WAIT to slide that memory card into my card reader and see all of the images. I CANNOT WAIT to upload your images, sort through them, and relive the shoot. And once I’ve culled the images (you know – gotten rid of the one where […]
