When Jaclyn e-mailed me and said she wanted to to her senior photo session at her horse stables I was a tad giddy. I love horses. My uncle shoed them for a living when I was little and he had a horse named Major and I would go with my uncle to the stables and ride. And then he would let me clean Major’s stall. I was quite proud of myself every time I looked into the stall after I had cleaned it. Little did I know I was doing an unwanted chore. And I’m about 99% sure my uncle had to go back into the stall and redo everything because quite frankly I was little and poop is heavy. And thus my love for horses was born.
Bill wasn’t quite sure about the horses. He’s from Philadelphia and I guess in that city horses aren’t as natural an occurrence as they are here in Houston and the surrounding areas. When we met Jaclyn’s horse I walked right over and pet his head. Bill stood back and stated quite frankly, “wow, that’s a big animal, I’ve never been this close to a horse.” He eventually warmed up to them and both of us stood in awe as Jaclyn maneuvered her horse and went soaring through the air as they jumped over a fence we had placed in the middle of the field.
Here are a few of our favorites from her photo shoot.
We’d love to hear your thoughts on the shoot! Leave us a comment.
