I’ve wanted to do a shoot with a horse for such a long time. I finally got my chance a few weeks ago!
I could not have asked for a better horse and rider to start with. Jessica knew exactly how to work with Wopke (a gorgeous Friesian) so I could get the photos I wanted. With the exception of the time he spotted a highly suspicious cow (in his mind… the cow wouldn’t even look at him) and refused to look away, he was pretty much the perfect horse model.
The shoot was north of San Francisco and near the coast, so we went from bright sunlight to fog quickly…not that I minded. I love the moody feel fog gives an image!
I’d like to say a HUGE thank you to everyone involved in this shoot and for helping make this happen!!
