Courtney & Philip – Equestrian Shoot at the Salt River

Can I share a secret with you? I secretly want to be a cowgirl. Since I was a little girl, I’ve dreamt of hopping on a horse and riding off into a field with the dust kicking up behind me and only the mountains out in front of me. Alas, that has yet to be realized, but it fulfills me in a deep way when I get a lady like Courtney and her horse Philip up in front of my camera. Can you just FEEL those western vibes?

Photographed at Pebble Beach along the Salt River, our spring thunderstorm skies provided just the right amount of clouds and light to take this session past what I had envisioned. If you’re ever in my area whether in Arizona or anywhere along my travels and have a horse, I’d be thrilled to capture portraits like these for you too. (Styled by TP Creations Photography).

Fueled by equal parts Earl Grey tea and passion, I spend my days capturing the kinds of images that make you stop, smile and ask time to please slow down. I believe in real moments and heartfelt conversations on the front porch. In the kinds of images that remind you of the joy that can be found in the simplest of moments together. I believe in images that are itching to be printed, placed in beautiful frames and hung on walls for years to come.
