I had the opportunity to photograph these two beauties this summer:
I found myself saying over and over, wow, you are just so gorgeous! (to the horses)
They are mother and son, Arabians,
who hold a dear spot in the heart of my friend Maggie.
We chose to meet an hour before sunset on the most gorgeous day of the year.
Though I must confess I don't know much about horses, I approached this portrait session just as I would if they were people, looking for the spirit, the personality, the beauty, the relationships, the story.
I believe you can photograph anything that way.
And it really doesn't hurt to have the most beautiful models around!
p.s. I must thank my friend Lelainia (@tatterededge on twitter) for the advice (and blog post) on this project.
