As a life long equestrian myself, I understand the special bond between a horse and rider. I have spent those quiet moments listening to my horse munch hay. I have felt the absolute thrill of coming together to win the blue ribbon.
I am committed to capturing the relationship you have with your horse and creating everlasting memories that you can keep for generations. I offer personalized photo shoots, as well as mini sessions and beautiful wall art for your home. Whether you are looking for portraits of your daily life with your horse, or a glamorous Fine Art portrait, together we can create your story.
Currently based in Chestertown on the Eastern Shore of Maryland, I will gladly travel to any location.
Sometimes you never know the true value of a moment until it becomes just a memory.
Choose the session that's right for you
