Kelsey & her family, photographed in her beautiful dahlia field at their house in Othello, WA. Kelsey has booked over 10 sessions with me over the years I've been in business (not including the several shoots I had her model for me! One of them being my very first horse and rider portrait session in 2016!)- needless to say I'm incredibly grateful to have a lifelong friend like her. I'm so honored to photograph her family multiple times a year, documenting their growth over the years. This time, I was soooo excited Kelsey wanted to include her mare, Shelby. Her daughter Raelynn is absolutely horse obsessed (naturally), and I was quite impressed to see how gentle Shelby was with her. And of course we captured photos of the whole family in the alfalfa field by their house, a tradition we've done the last several sessions.
I can't wait for many more sessions with this wonderful family in the future, and to watch the kids continue to grow up and for more horses and ponies to be added to the family for Rae (and maybe the boys if they decide they love horses too!)
