I am so glad that Andrea chose me when looking for a dressage photographer near Ocala. Her horse, Dreamer, is absolutely stunning and huge (he is over 17 hands tall)! When I first started talking with Andrea about her session, she had so many good things to say about Dreamer. After meeting him in person, I can see why! He is a huge horse, but he is such a teddy bear. Dreamer has the personality that most of us look for when buying a horse. He was patient during photos, but when he got back to his stall he wanted treats and to cuddle! Dreamer has a big personality, but is also a good show horse for Andrea. I loved hearing about their experiences together and the goals they have for the future while training with Franziska Seidl in Morriston, Florida.  The two of them make a fantastic pair.

I started photography many years ago to take photos of my own personal horses. My first horse, Cody, was my (first) heart horse. He was the best first horse a kid could ask for; he would go anywhere, and do anything while being the perfect gentleman. Unfortunately, he passed away shortly after I started photography so I have limited photos of him. I have a few 4×6 prints of him, but that is about it. My goal with photography is to be sure that my clients have what I don’t: artwork of their heart horse that they can cherish even after their horse is gone. It is hard to realize what you are missing until it is gone, and I would do anything to have an album, or a metal print of my first horse. These memories are more than special, they are priceless.
