A Fun Photo Shoot


Yesterday Papa and I went to an Amish farm to take photos of his horses either standing or in action for a catalogue that the Amish buy and sell horses from ! It was cold and we were out there for about 4 hours . It is so hard to take good photos in the snow when the sky is grey as well  but we are pleased with them.  We ourselves were a team Papa at one angle and I at the other to insure we get as many different shots as possible !  Papa is working on some of the photos now , some will be enhanced and some touched up but all will be ready for our client for tomorrow evening ! Between the two of us we took 700 photos !

                                                         These photos I did myself !


Our client said we can keep any of the photos and use them as we please . I have always wanted to photograph Belgians .







                      This is his Dutch warmblood  who has blue Appaloosa eyes ! Beautiful horse !


       The stride on this horse is like a trotter so long and smooth with lean powerful  legs !

                                                This above photo was taken by Papa


Then as we were photographing another person an Amish neighbour of our client came up to us and asked if we had time to photograph his horse  , well yes of course we do  I was in my glory at this point so much I didn’t even notice the cold and winds lol !

Whilst we were waiting for the other client to get his horse and hitch him up , I was visiting with his horses and kissing warm soft noses ! This little fuzzy paint pony was soo cute we hit it off so well , I said to Papa he would fit in the van ya know hehe ! Pony was warm with is fuzzy winter coat mean while I wore 5 layers of clothing to stay warm . Papa snuck  in more photos of me with the pony !

                   This is the other client and his horse ! Took lot’s of photos of them as well !

  So needless to say we have lots of work of sorting and perfecting to do but it is worth it as I had so much fun doing what I love to do  being around horses and  Photography !

                                  Until next time  hope you all have a good day !

                                   Thanks For Popping By !

700 photos?! YoWsA! I LOVE them, esp the 1st one, the horses make up for the white/gray sky. It'll definitely be a beautiful catalog, sure to sell lots of horses for them! =)

What wonderful animimals to photograph, Elaine. And havint the snowy weather made the shots pop even more. And I agree that the little pony would be perfect to fit in your trailer. You and Papa have a big task ahead sorting through those 700 photos! Enjoy and have fun.
