I'm a lifelong horse-crazy person, but I wasn't fully immersed in the horse world until I returned from my deployment to Afghanistan as a Combat Cameraman in 2012. I began volunteering at a horse rescue and it was the most natural thing for me to combine my love of visual storytelling and horses. I fell hard for the plainest bay Standardbred, a 40 year-old grouch named Brocca. It was love at pinned ears. Unfortunately he passed in 2018 and all I have are cell phone photos of us together.
Brocca inspired me to give others what I missed out on - gorgeous photos of our time together worthy of life-sized prints.
I was medically retired from the Army in 2017 and joined my husband in Kentucky. In 2019, I started volunteering at Equine Assisted Transitions and once again fell in love with a grumpy bay gelding (notice a trend there?) named Dinero.
As of February 2021, my family and I call the desert of El Paso, Texas home. It's a whole different world from the east coast that I've grown up in.
There's nothing I love more than capturing those quiet moments of connection between horses and their people - the booping of noses and hugging of faces that happens between poses.
Photography sessions aren't just about the time and money put into them - they're an emotional investment in preserving memories that will remain long after your horse passes.
They are a way to capture the spunky, sassy, wise, amazing soul that has captured your heart.
I can't wait to meet you and your horse and make new friends out west.
