So first of all CONGRATULATIONS to Jen on her college graduation!! When Jen contacted me about senior photos with her chestnut mare, Luna, I was stoked – I love senior portraits.

So there’s this popular hashtag on Instagram #communityovercompetition. It’s pretty self-explanatory in the context of photography – there are a zillion and one photographers out there and many of us are marketing to the same people, and it can become a competitive situation.

Kelly and her OTTB gelding Poe compete in three day eventing together – which means they’re both pretty bad-ass – which also means that Poe is BOMB PROOF.

When Stacey first told me her horse’s name was Trouble, the next thing she said was “but he’s not!” Far from being any trouble, he was one of the kindest, calmest, most gentlemanly horses I’ve ever worked with.
