New Jersey and Pennsylvania Equine Photographer – Megan & Hamlet’s Portraits in Scott, Pennsylvania

This – this was a special session. Megan’s boyfriend Will contacted me over the summer asking about a portrait session for his girlfriend and her horse for their anniversary (the human anniversary, that is). He said, and I quote: “…I know dating her is also dating her horse”. WISER WORDS WERE NEVER SPOKEN (typed)!! Seriously, though – how incredible is that?! Once we’d ironed out the details and I had the chance to speak to Megan on the phone, I could see why her boyfriend was so great – she’s equally so. So needless to say I was super excited to meet both of them as well as Megan’s horse, Hamlet, and get everyone prepared for their black background portraits and horse & rider portraits! The only hitch – Megan, Hamlet and Will live 2.5 hours away from me. Which makes an in-person pre-session consultation a bit difficult. So I had to wait until the day of our session to meet them, and when I arrived at her barn both myself and my friend Maya (who was with me) gasped – GORGEOUS. Incredible views, rolling hills, a beautiful pond – this farm has it all. The day was totally gray, overcast, and chilly – quite chilly – but perfect for our session. So I FINALLY got to meet everyone, and I could tell right away this was going to be a fun session. Hamlet was so dang shiny – like blindingly shiny – and Megan is gorgeous, and basically I had my work cut out for me. Now remember how I mentioned it was chilly? It was one of the first chilly days of the year – and Hamlet was feeling GOOOOOOD. Like, really, really good. So he definitely kept us on our toes for the duration of the shoot, but he was such a sweet boy. It was such a special thing to be a part of their anniversary gift and be able to make these portraits for Megan, and I wish her and Will (and Hamlet!) many, many more happy anniversaries!

To sum things up – boyfriends/husbands/partners/spouses, if you’re reading this – listen to Will. Because Will speaks the truth – whoever dates/marries an equestrian is also dating/marrying their horse. Our horses are our family – and when our human families realize, respect and embrace this, it makes life so much happier and more full for everyone!
