If I could be granted a superpower, I think I would want the ability to control the weather. I feel like I’ve turned into an amateur meteorologist over the years, as I try watch and read multiple weather reports and forecasts to figure out when to go ahead with a session and when to reschedule. If I … Read More

There’s a funny quote I see pop up on Facebook once in awhile. It goes like this “Horses are like potato chips, you can’t have just one!” Well, Greta originally was going to have photos with just her sweet horse Lulu (on the right), but days before our session, she got another one named Ricky. He … Read More

When I was a little girl, I was pretty much obsessed with all things horses.

I was pretty sure I would grow up, marry a farmer or a cowboy, and live on a ranch in the country. … Read More

One of my favorite things about my equestrian portrait sessions is that I get to visit a lot of different barns in the area and explore the beautiful scenery surrounding them. Keara boards her horse Harley at Rolling Hills Stable in Hugo, MN. Hugo is just far enough north of the Twin Cities to have … Read More
