Anna - A Senior with Her Horses | Redmond WA Senior Photographer

I was SO excited when Anna contacted me to photograph her senior session with her horses on so many levels!  Anna used to be my neighbor growing up...she was the adorable little girl next door with big eyes and the sweetest smile.  In fact, I often babysat her and her older sister until they moved down to Redmond after a few years.  The last time I saw Anna was at my wedding almost 8 years ago so couldn't wait to head down to their home for a little reunion and photo shoot   And really, any session that includes horses is going to be awesome!  I couldn't believe how gorgeous Anna is now when I got out of my truck at their house for her session!  My little neighbor girl is seriously gorgeous these days! Thank you so much Mitch, Tracy and Anna for letting me come down and photograph Anna!  It was so great to see you all!  I really hope to see you sooner than 8 years from now!

Life on the Funny Farm | Lynden Photographer

I took these photos around our place today:

-After a fabulous family session with the most adorable kids (I can’t wait to show you the pictures!!)

-After shopping at three antique stores for some awesome new baby and children session props

-After hitting up Sonic for tater tots, fry sauce and a lemon-berry slush…mmm!  Now that was $2 well spent!

-After taking an hour walk with Diesel to walk off the aforementioned $2 lunch

-After stopping by the neighbors and seeing their 30 goats for sale

-After doing some serious business planning and brainstorming

-After cleaning up the disaster of packaging in my house from my gorgeous album orders

-After hearing weird noises outside and finding Rascal (who should have been in the outside paddock) had unlocked a stall door, entered the stall, knocked over the wheelbarrow that was parked in his way, went through the stall into the breezeway of the barn, opened a closed bucket lid and ate all of the miniature horses’ grain, knocked over his own closed tub of grain with approx. 40 pounds of grain and 20 pounds of salt in it and was happily munching his way through that. 

It has been a day!

LyndenPhotographer-100 Meet Cowboy (below) and Cookie (above)!  They are keeping Rascal company this winter so he doesn’t eat me alive from boredom.  They are miniature horses and are about the sweetest, friendliest, furriest, littlest things you’ve ever seen!

LyndenPhotographer-101 LyndenPhotographer-102 Naughty, naughty Rascal…still eating!

LyndenPhotographer-103 LyndenPhotographer-104 The always handsome Diesel Lee!  He just got over an icky eye infection—despite chewing his medicine bottle up so I couldn’t unscrew the cap of his eye drops.  The dog is not dumb…I should have tried that when I was younger!

LyndenPhotographer-105 LyndenPhotographer-106 I love how he crosses his paws when he lays down!

LyndenPhotographer-107 Daisy Bell—she was not feeling photogenic today.

Just Rascal

So Rascal can actually look like a normal horse…well, if you can call an orange polka dotted horse normal.  My goal for these pictures wasn’t to make him look like a gorgeous show horse, heck I didn’t even brush him.  I just wanted to capture—him.  Out in the field, munching on grass and hanging out.  Because that is what he looks like every morning, noon and night when I walk out and give him a scratch on his forehead.  Just Rascal.  And that is just how I will always picture him.

 

I usually don’t process pictures of Rascal in black and white because he is so colorful (both inside and out!), color images seem to bring out his personality.  But for some reason I went black and white with this image and I love it.

IMG_2972 I love spots…lots and lots of spots.  But see that one big spot on his tummy?  It drives me nuts.  It looks like a paint spill instead of a splatter.  Oh well—he’s plenty of cute everywhere else!

IMG_2977

I love this nose!  Every time I photograph Rascal I take an image similar to this—I just can’t help myself.

IMG_2989

IMG_2992

That grass sticking out his mouth is a permanent look for him—typical Appaloosa.  He eats and eats and eats!  Notice how he is rocking the wind swept look, I think he could model for Abercrombie.

IMG_3020 His little forelock (bangs, if you will) cracks me up!  It never grows any longer than this and is always so highlighted and lighter than the rest of his hair.  Simply adorable!
