Horses are magical. When Heather’s mom called and asked if I could shoot her senior portraits in Lodi with her horse, Skippy, I was SO excited. I knew it would be fun. A girl and her horse, what more could you ask for? She said they lived on a large property and we could shoot at their home. When someone says you can shoot at their home, you never know what to expect. Are they choosing their home for convenience sake, or will it really be a good place to shoot? Well as you’ll see, in this case, it was the latter. SO so SO beautiful. Vineyards forever and some gorgeous oaks to add to the scene. You put an adorable high school senior and her horse in the mix and VOILA, what happens is you don’t want to stop shooting. Like ever. Especially because who knows if you’ll ever get to do something like that again!?
Heather is just as sweet as she is cute, too. She is headed out to start college in San Luis Obispo in the Fall. Her older sister will be transferring to join her in the adventure. She had a sparkle in her eye as she told me about it. Such an exciting time in a young woman’s life. I believe she will have quite a fun transition from her small town Lodi life to a college campus!
Best of luck to you, Heather! Thank you for being so sweet and fun at our shoot. I loved shooting with you and your sweet Skippy.
p.s. During this shoot I got to see the proof that the phrase “pee like a racehorse” means pee for a REALLY long time! (excuse the less than prudent visual!)
