Kelly & Symon - Seattle Horse Photographer

Kelly and her horse Symon.

This shoot brought back all the years I spent in love with horses.  Horses were my very reason for existing.  I lived, breathed, ate and dreamed horses.

The shoot was at the stable where Symon was boarded on his training vacation, prior to going back to the  trainers barn. 

The corral was less than photogenic but we worked with what we had.  I ended up doing some heavy post processing (textures and layers) to most of the images as an attempt to salvage them from less than desirable back ground.  All in all,  we were happy with the results.

Hopefully we created some memories for Kelly to "Look Back" on in the future. 

"In dealing with a girl or a horse, one lets nature take it's course." ~Fred Astaire

Every girl should have a horse

A horse can be a friend,  steadfast companion

"There is something about riding down the street on a prancing horse that makes you feel like something, even when you ain't a thing." Will Rogers

God forbid that I should go to any Heaven in which there are no horses. ~R.B. Cunninghame Graham 

"A horse is the projection of peoples' dreams about themselves - strong, powerful, beautiful - and it has the capability of giving us escape from our mundane existence"  ~ Pam Brown

"Riding a horse is not a gentle hobby, to be picked up and laid down like a game of solitaire. It is a grand passion. It seizes a person whole and once it has done so, he/she will have to accept that his life will be radically changed." ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

The essential joy of being with horses is that it brings us in contact with the rare elements of grace, beauty, spirit, and fire. ~Sharon Ralls Lemon

There is nothing quite like a girl and her horse

Nothing quite like it at all...
