My Childhood Love

Growing up, my absolute most favorite thing in the entire world was horses. I was obsessed. My best friend and neighbor, Tina, and I would spend hours flipping through books about horses and picking out our favorites. We were going to grow up and run a horse farm someday.

Eventually boys, makeup and New Kids On The Block replaced my horse obsession, but I always loved them and was even lucky enough to board one for a while when I was a young girl.

I got a phone call a few months ago asking if I would be interested in shooting a school team's equestrian team photos (funny enough at the high school I graduated from) and I happily agreed! Doing school pictures isn't something I would normally have signed up for, but with horses involved I couldn't say no. And of course I can't do a session without shooting a few candids. Enjoy!

New Kids are back! Did you see them on the Today Show?!

I was hoping that you would send me the pictures of my jewelry soon! I don't think I can wait another day! I feel like an impatient kid ;) I also want to send you some pieces. Drop me a message.

Those are great Amy. The colors are so rich but I have to say, there is just something about equestrian photos in b&w.

It gives them a whole different feeling, very powerful.

Great job!
