When I was 3 I begged my (non-horsey) parents for riding lessons, after falling head-over-heels for Ginger in Black Beauty. They thought it was "just a phase" but here I am, 30-some-odd years later just as obsessed as I was back then, maybe even more so...
I have been interested in photography almost as long; I used to be "allowed" one roll of film on our point-and-shoot digital camera for our outings to Spruce Meadows, and it was agony waiting for the film to be developed so I could see what I had captured. Thank goodness for the digital era!
I love capturing memories. I love getting that moment: the timing, the light, the angle just right and freezing that fraction of a second forever. I love that I get to help document a part of your journey.
