About You

You're here because you love horses. More importantly, you love YOUR horse.

You work your butt off ensuring he or she (or they!) have everything they possibly need.


You spend more time in the barn than your house.

Your horse has a doctor, a dentist, a chiropractor, a nutritionist, a masseuse, a trainer and a saddle fitter.

You’re on the third day of eating cereal for dinner.

But you know it’s all worth it every single time you walk into the barn when they prick their ears and nicker.

That bond is something people who have not experienced it will never understand.

Every relationship with a horse is just as complicated and unique as one with another person.

It's frustrating. It’s exhausting. It’s hard work.

But it’s also beautiful, powerful, and life-changing.

Photography captures the essence of the bond between you and your horse.

A portrait session allows you to take a pause out of your crazy schedule and spend time with your horse simply connecting.

No training. No goals.

Just the two of you— focused on all you’ve built together, and cherishing the little quirks that make you fall in love today.

The photos you receive will capture it for a lifetime.

The quirks. The quiet, magical moments. Celebrated today,

and preserved for decades from now. 

A collection of Emily's favorite images from over the years.

“Emily has a gift to capture the essence of each moment. She’s been a huge part of my journey capturing moments at horse shows, clinics, my family and also of my businesses. Emily is efficient and I never wait long for my pictures which means the world to me! I highly recommend her for all your needs.”
