Elisabeth, The Lone Ranger, and Natural Beauty


Okay, so maybe he’s not THE Lone Ranger, but Elisabeth’s very tall, dark and handsome horse is named “Lone Ranger,” or just “Ranger,” for short. They train and compete Hunter/Jumper shows, which means that they have been known to fly! Elisabeth and Ranger have a fun relationship. They are playful with each other and like to be just a little goofy at times. 😉

I loved this session for a number of reasons. First, I really enjoyed getting to know Elisabeth and her parents. We spent a little extra time together because we an interruption during our first session, so we finished it on another day. Between two sessions, an ordering session, and personally delivering their order, I came to really love the Henn family!

Second, I loved photographing Elisabeth and Ranger together. They have a way with each other that was easy going and connected. A recipe for a happy Shelley behind the camera!

Third, I truly enjoy photographing people who are comfortable in their own skin and let their natural beauty shine through. Elisabeth is so very beautiful without a lot of makeup or styling and her photos reflect who she really is and her true beauty in this amazing time in her life.

    What a beautiful horse and beautiful partnership. I needed some inspiration and to be uplifted this afternoon and I knew right where to head-your blog! Drooling over the use of light and the colors. So awesome, Shelley as always. Thanks for making my day just a little brighter. 🙂
