Toby + Duke | Equine Photography

I hope everyone’s year is off to a great start! These past few months have been a blur, but now that the holidays are over, I’m ready to take on 2011! I have lots of exciting plans for this year, but before I leave 2010 completely behind, I still have a few more images to share.

I had a family session back in early December and I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect shoot – a lovely family, beautiful setting, gorgeous light, and *horses*! Even though our primary goal was photographs for the family Christmas card, I couldn’t resist sneaking in a few shots of just these two. I have to add that I was warned in advance that they would most likely *not* cooperate, but not only did they cooperate, they were absolutely perfect models!

I believe that’s Toby on the left and Duke on the right…

Such a fun session! Stay turned for more fun from *last* year (I’m still getting used to saying that!).

The GulfCoast DOG Pet Extravaganza

I’m so excited to be participating in The GulfCoast DOG Magazine’s 2009 Pet Extravaganza that is coming up this Saturday, October 17 at the Sarasota/Bradenton International Convention Center. This is going to be a GREAT event! There will be over 125 pet related vendors from around the country, animal rescue groups, agility, flyball, and obedience demos, guest speakers, fun activities for the kids, lots of great giveaways, and MUCH MORE! Admission is only $5 for adults, $3 for kids 6 and over, and free for children 5 and under. Well-behaved dogs (on-leash) are also welcome! For more information, please click here.

In addition to having a booth, I’m also going to be offering mini portrait sessions, with a portion of the proceeds going to the animal rescue groups in attendance. You can also sign up to win a free session – please stop by and say hello!

My Old Friend T-Go

I’ve been a bad blogger lately – Lot’s of fun stuff in the works, but I’m *still* trying to get caught up on posting pictures from my Indy trip! Today I thought I would share a few pictures of my old horse “T-Go” from Indiana. Sadly, I had to give him up when I moved down to Florida, but at least I still get to visit him when I go back for visits. He’s a big bay Thoroughbred and I’m guessing he’s around 13 years old now. And although he’s still recovering from a recent injury, he’s now back in training and I think he looks great! Sure does make me miss my horsey days…
