This session held a few firsts for me – my first time shooting in a corn field, and my first time doing portraits of a standardbred! Kerstin boards Prairie at a beautiful spot in Monroe Township, and they grow their own hay on the property – it also backs up to some lovely woods. But – across the street – CORN FIELDS! I was so excited to try something new and get the two of them cuddling in the gorgeous sunset light in that corn field. And it didn’t disappoint. It also proved a point that Kerstin mentioned at one point during our session – standardbreds are so level-headed! We asked Prairie to tromp through corn fields and she happily obliged, she didn’t spook once at anything flying around in the corn or rustling through the stalks. I was also impressed by her dapples – dapples for daaaaaays. We were lucky to be joined by Kerstin’s boyfriend, mother, and dog, so we had a little family affair for this session which was a lot of fun. This was the perfect session to close out summer – a warm evening, beautiful light, and a lovely pair of ladies. Thank you Kerstin and Prairie for being game to try anything!
