We started Morgan's shoot early because storm clouds were heading in our direction. Both Morgan and her horse, Orlagh, were ready to get started as the primping started early in the day. Hair, nails and even Orlagh got some special beauty time.
We were able to shoot for the must-have shots before it started raining. Thankfully we made it inside the barn before the skies opened up but Orlagh had to be walked back to the pasture - thanks mom! Mom was soaked through but didn't let it get her down; she wrapped herself in a blanket and enjoyed the loudest thunderstorm I've heard in years while being protected from the wind and rain inside the beautiful old red barn. I took advantage of the light entering the barn to capture more images of Morgan and when the storm passed we headed back out to continue the photo shoot in the fresh after-storm air. The rain and evening light made everything shine a little more brightly.
It was a pleasure to work with Morgan and her mom on this meaningful photo shoot. Some images from this shoot can be viewed on the collage page of my website and more will be posted soon.
The first image below was taken after Morgan's photo shoot - she had a great time and so did I. The second image is of Morgan rocking her photo shoot.
