So I had this random idea for a photoshoot with a gas pump and a horse.  I just thought it would be cool out in the middle of a field.  I have so many random ideas if I don’t do them they will drive me crazy until I get it out of my head. Luckily […]

The Spainhour family is one of my favorite families! I grew up with Megan riding horses, and I swear, they have the best kids. Mattie is like a little sister, and one of the coolest teenagers you will ever meet!

This was the second year that I have gotten to photograph the roping finals at Livengood Arena. It is always so much fun. The Livengoods always put on a good event, and I love getting able to capture all of these talented rodeo competitors.
