So easy even a child can do it! Some people love everything about a photo session: picking outfits, doing their makeup to perfection, “working it” for the camera, the whole nine yards.

I photographed Meagan and Blue at Peacock Hill Equestrian Center in Irvine, CA. This one was extra special because for a brief time Meagan and I lessoned together and cheered each other on.

I first met Katie J in the summer of 2019 when we both participated in a riding workshop with Bernie Traurig. Her beautiful riding was definitely #goals then and even more so now! She has a new partner G-Star aka Cisco and they’re on the Elvenstar show team with big eq goals. I was lucky […]

By far the most common question I’m asked anytime I’m planning to photograph a human is “what do I wear?” often combined with a look of complete bewilderment! Horses are easy.

Meet Monique & Clavius! Clavius is a dreamboat: tall, dark, and handsome with four white socks, a big blaze face and adorable pink muzzle.
