Blue is getting a little older and considering a career change so it was time to celebrate their years together! First, we […]

I clearly recall a few thoughts from when I was caught under the swirling rapids of the Zambezi River. Perhaps (in retrospect) the most funny?  “My parents are not going to be happy to have to go pick up my body in Zimbabwe.”  It was 2006 and my younger self was whitewater rafting a category […]

Christie is my awesome new barnmate at Ingenium Farm in Moorpark, and her horse Luciano is a total dreamboat, so I was incredibly excited to shoot them in a recent sunset session. The farm is part of the Rancho de Las Palmas estate, used for weddings and special events, and the arena is surrounded by […]

Adult amateur rider Maryam is lucky enough to have four handsome geldings, and I was lucky enough to meet them all over two sessions recently! Next up we went to San Juan Capistrano where Maryam’s other two geldings have lease riders. Another chestnut and another grey! Last but not least, Cappy is a big sweetheart! […]
