Horses, dogs, country life - I love them all and they are my favorite subjects to photograph. So please think of me if you are looking for photos of yourself, family and pets. There are so many options before you: portrait style with you and your horse, under saddle, your horse at liberty, senior photos, family photos, holiday photos and more. The key ingredient for all of them is fun!
My style is candid and informal; I'll offer general suggestions about what to do but you won't be put into strange poses and asked to stand in one place. I move around a lot and I like to try different things, and if you have ideas I'd love to hear them.
I work out of doors and use natural light. I can meet you at the barn, your house or a nearby natural area or park.
All members of the U. S. military and their families will receive a 10% discount for private photo shoots. This applies to active duty, retired, national guard and reserve personnel. Deepest gratitude for your service and sacrifice.
A bit about me...
Prior to my life in Lancaster County, PA I was a city-girl; born and raised in downtown Philadelphia and then living in Manhattan for eight years working for ABC News. But growing up my summers were spent on my grandparents' farm and in the Endless Mountains of PA. For two summers during college I worked in Yosemite National Park. In all these places I fostered and renewed my love affair with animals and the natural world.
I have always loved horses, it's in my DNA. My grandparents, father and uncle all foxhunted and bred thoroughbreds on their farm in Lehigh County, PA. My father competed in the hunter and jumper ring in places such as Devon (where he was twice Best Child Rider), the Pennsylvania National Horse Show, the Olympic Trials and more.
As for me, I have Sullivan, a now-retired 23 year old paint/qh with whom I had boatloads of fun: eventing, paperchases, hunter trials, etc. For riding opportunities I currently rely on my wonderful circle of friends!
In addition to Sullivan we have Tinsel, Pip and Jagr - 3 jack russells who are in charge of the family entertainment and an english setter who is my husband's devoted hunting partner. We foster for Mid Atlantic Jack Rescue so let me know if you are looking for your next best friend.
