We are deep into the slow of winter here! You know - that post-holidays-it's-dreary-out-when-is-it-Spring time of year! I've been trying to embrace the cold this year. I have made a real effort to be more active, get out and socialize, hike (even winter camp) and do winter pictures for clients! I have to admit it has helped the time go by a little quicker this year.
Our eight year old daughter is also active outside year round - she even works at a farm in their homeschool program rain or shine! I love these mornings! We get there early, I drop her off and watch the goats and sheep have their breakfast. I can see my breath and know I'm starting my day off with fresh air. The farm has a rolling green pasture with a stream running through; it reminds me of Ireland!
I've always loved time spent on farms! Growing up in Ashland, MA my closest friend always had horses. I spent so many afternoons with her caring for them and mucking out stalls. I admired her ribbons from dressage and her precious portraits with them. She now owns her very own horse ranch in North Carolina and gives lessons to children with anxiety (you can find her here: https://www.facebook.com/steppingstoneslessonprogram/) Definitely check her out if you're in the Charlotte, NC area!
Now, my closest friend in Massachusetts also has a beautiful horse, Likely! See how beautiful he is?! ---->>>
She was so gracious and trusting with me to do my first equine session with them.
I would really love to do more equine sessions and I'm offering a major deal to help build my portfolio (contact me for more info). I have so much experience with newborns, families - even dogs and cats - I would love to add more horses to my portfolio!
Sessions would lean more lifestyle documentary - the kind of session where you can see the love and passion between owner and pet! Do you know anyone who would love a session like this? Reach out!
