Had the pleasure of a unique equine photo session with a beauty named "Dixie".  When her mom, Kelly scheduled her photo session for a Sunday morning, we knew we lucked out on the weather.  We hit one of the rare rain free days and flowers were blooming throughout the unusually green Colorado pastures.  

Kelly wore the perfect country dress for the occasion. We started Dixie with quiet strolls, stopping for tender moments between the girls. Husband Joel, joined in for some great family portraits. Kelly 

BlogBlog then switched to jeans and rode Dixie bare back for more playful shots. 

A highlight of the morning was when Kelly led Dixie up the hill and removed her reins. Fully expecting her to run down the valley of pastureland (as she usually does on her home turf), she instead headed right for me. I had a long lens ready for full zoom and instead found myself hustling backwards as Dixie ran right past me.

Despite the excitement, I got winning shot the day,  showing Dixie's true personality: strong and sassy runner! The sun glimmered on her beautiful coat, showing off her strength. Her facial expression says it all.  Prints and standouts are in production, this will surely be unique portrait collection to enjoy for years to come.  Thank you to Kelly & Joel for arranging this outing and the chance to work with you on this amazing photo session!

Oh man, nothing quite like a girl and her horse...except maybe a girl, her horse, and her beau. :) Lovely job on all shots but that last one. OH MY! Perfection.
