Sunrise Mounted Shooting Horse Portrait Session with Paige and Roxie

There’s a location on the southern edge of Phoenix, up next to South Mountain called Scorpion Gulch. I had been wanting to shoot there for some time as it’s old, rustic location lended itself to creating interesting and fun images, so when this session was scheduled there with a mounted shooter, I was all in.

How fun to get to the rare opportunity to photograph a mounted shooter like Paige and her darling Roxie. The early morning start time can always be a little rough, but that morning desert glow perfectly cuddled Paige and Roxie. Luckily we didn’t see any scorpions but we were graced with 4 coyotes exploring the wash near us. After photographing around the structure, we made our way into the wash for some fun action shots.

Take a look at some of the behind the scenes action on our Instagram here.

A special thank you to TP Creations Photography and Paige.

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.
