On the Ritz-i.

I had the pleasure of riding a friends’ horse, Ritzi, for her while she was out on work travel.  Rob came along with me and snapped some photos.  This is my happy place, riding horses and being outside.  Also, since the weather has been so warm everything has really brightened up.

I love my Sundays at the barn.  Taking care of the horses and riding them.  It’s my happy place 🙂

What’s your happy place?

Photo Feature – Bre and Tibet

IMG_8391

A few posts back, I teased this shoot I did with my friend Bre and her horse, Tibet.  They were really fun to shoot because they both have very elegant features.  Together, they are showing at an extremely high level after Bre worked Tibet back from recovery not too long ago.  I absolutely love watching these two together and was so grateful that they asked me to shoot some photos of them.  Here are a few of my favorites.

Hope you are all having a great week!

Photo Teaser

IMG_8588While in the process of catching up from Coachella, I realized I should give a sneak peak of another photo shoot I shot a few weeks ago.  It was a special one because my friend, who is also the owner of this beautiful horse, wanted to incorporate her grandfather’s military flag.  It was a brilliant idea of theirs and they looked beautiful.  There’s something so wonderful about bringing meaning to the people and pets you love like using this special flag in the present.  I’ll post a few more of these soon.  Until then, enjoy this sneak peak!

Lend me your eyes, I can change what you see

My entire life, I’ve had this thing for horses.  I’ve ridden and taken care of them since I could walk and talk.  I was beyond thrilled when Chelsea and our friend Henry wanted to get out to the barn and work with the horses to try and get some artsy blog worthy photos.  Chelsea’s photos came out UNREAL and she was a champ with the horses.  These are a few of mine.

The barn is the place I go to decompress and enjoy being outdoors.  What do you do in your spare time?  How much do you think it would take to get Chelsea on a horse?  Maybe another Blideo idea is on the rise… Happy Friday everyone.  As we like to say, IFF (It’s F#$&ing Friday)!
