I wanted to do a fun cowgirl photoshoot so we wrangled Josie and Lyza together and used my best friends amazing mare (who tolerated them so well) to do a fun photoshoot at sunset.  We maybe only took pictures for like 30 minutes but it always seems like so much longer wrangling kids and horses […]

Every year I always look forward to the ideas that Crystal and Jessie come up with.  They are always so cute and western.  This year they came up with the idea of putting the bed up on top of the hill at sunset and it was perfect! Jessie’s dad dressed up as a cowboy Santa […]

I love getting to spend time on the Derrer Farm.  They have some of the most beautiful horses on their farm. The Derrer Family competes all over the country with their team of horses, a hitched team of 6.  It takes the entire family to make everything work.   This year they were champions, and wanted to […]

Laura came out to the farm for an equine photoshoot! She is such a cool soul and totally down for anything.  We laughed a lot and put up with my dumbo horse, who was being a little buddy sour, but at the end of the day he did fine and everything came out amazing!
