I have had the opportunity to work with some pretty awesome people so far on my journey. One that stands out in my mind is the girl who has been dubbed ‘The Horse Whisperer’.
At our pre-session consultation, this little firecracker of a girl gave me a mission- she wanted one photograph for herself, a photograph of her with her most favourite thing in the whole wide world- her horse. She was adamant that she had to have this photograph, and I knew I had to do whatever I needed to do to give it to her.
When it came time for our session to take place, the whole family brought out their horses. It was quite a sight to see them all- all up on horseback, comfortable, smiling- they simply belonged there. To watch the family interact with the animals, even at a glance anyone could see how much the horses were loved.
As for the little firecracker of a girl, The Horse Whisperer, when her moment came, she posed herself. She posed herself with her horse perfectly. Everything aligned: the light was perfect, the pose was perfect, and I pressed the shutter button, forever sealing that moment in time. She was thrilled.
