Thank You

A warm thank you goes out to all who stopped by the booth at the Arabian Championships in Salem last week. I was not able to attend, so Beth from "The Sandland Group" had 6 of my images, framed and on display along with offering my business cards out on her table.

I am told my photography got a lot of attention and positive comments. Several people even inquired about purchasing prints!

I must say I am flattered and honored, it is my intention to offer some fine art prints for sale in the near future. With summer upon us, and me in full shooting mode, it will be fall before I can get galleries together and begin to offer prints for sale. If you were at the show and would like to purchase and image, send me an email please, I will gladly make up a signed 8x10 print without a frame for $39.99. Framing additional.

Baby photo contest has been extended!

For those of you who do not get our newsletter (you're missing out :) ) Someone mentioned to me that this was not posted here! We have an update on the baby photo contest as follows...

It has come to my attention that there are still a lot of expecting "mothers" out there that would love a chance to enter. We are extending our previous deadline until July 15th to give everyone a chance. Here is a re-post of the previously mentioned contest happening now with a few changes to update it:

We are having a baby photo contest, any kind of baby, human, equine, you name it, as long as it was born this year.

Two ways to win: Send in a photo that you have taken of your "baby", or sign up for our newsletter (or get a friend too and mention your name) and be entered to win a free photo shoot. Please be sure to include the baby's details! (Name, Mother, Father, date born, vitals, farm name, whatever applies) and we will post them on our blog as they come in through-out the month.

Prize includes a one hour photo session resulting in 12 - 20 image proofs online and one 8x10 photograph. If you are not local or have no need for a photo shoot, you may email us an image and we will make you your own coffee mug or mouse pad with your baby's image on it.

*Travel expenses for travel over 45 miles to be paid by the winner. Additional prints or image files may be purchased at published rates. The winner will be drawn randomly on July 16h from all eligible entries and posted on our blog. Session must be scheduled before July 30th 2007 and finished before Sept 15 2007 or prize is forfeit.

You're not to late, get those photos in! Check out all the entries on our Blog. Type in keyword "contest" to bring up baby contest posts.

A quick hello to everyone, I haven't had much time to post this past month. I've had lots of photography, family visiting and traveling, with more planned!

I recently purchased a new camera and headed out to our zoo for some practice, here's a couple shots to share and keep things interesting.

I have shoots this weeks, so hopefully I can make time to post a few shots! Thanks or checking in!

One more for the baby photo contest!

And one more baby contest entry from "Star Creek Arabians & Pintos @ Lazy Hawk Ranch"

Just a reminder: Please remember, this is an opportunity to brag about your foals and show off photos. We will be drawing the winner randomly from all of the entries, it's not a photo contest :) So please, send in those photos if you like! And yes, you may enter more than one baby.

Our last baby is finally here...
It’s a boy!

Beaus Angel X Black
(A double NV Beau Bey pedigree)

What a fantastic ending to the 2007 foaling season!

Type, Exotic & Gorgeous

We are extremely excited about this boy!

A smashing filly!

No doubt this is a "smashing" filly. Recently I was hired by this client to take "baby" photos of her new filly.

The customer was thrilled with what we got, so for me, I did my job, and the shots turned out great for an 18 day old foal. What do you all think?

Cute baby!

Just thought I would share this guy, I snapped his photos thru the fence while I was on location to shoot another filly (the one above this post) He is too cute not to share!

Paint fun....

I recently got to visit Binkerd Performance Horses, a mostly paint horse barn, with a few other breeds also, I think we shot 17 horse and owner combos in one day! I took so many many many photos, and they are almost all great! I could never pick any one favorite, here are just a very few samples from the day.... I have no idea where to even begin on choices, so these are done, I will use them..... Thank you to everyone, the day went pretty smooth considering the opportunity for chaos! Everyone did so AWESOME! The mood was fun, and the place , horses and people were gorgeous, who could ask for more!

WAY behind on posting...

Well, I am sorry to everyone who stops in here, these last few weeks have been wonderful! But I am way behind on posting, I am finally caught up and can post some samples of what I have been shooting!

Sorry if this becomes one long photo post! I'll try to break it up a bit!

This first one is a Friesian Stallion I was hired to shoot for an upcoming add in a local publication. He was so fun, really a gentleman, and the owners are such great people!
