Lakota Wolf Preserve | Columbia, New Jersey

My friends and family took another trip to the Lakota Wolf Preserve in Columbia, New Jersey this past weekend, and it has quickly become one of my very favorite places to visit. If you are around the area, be sure to go if you’re able. It’s very affordable, but the wonderful people who work there and take care of these majestic animals also take the time to educate you on the preserve, the animals, and will answer any questions you may have. The preserve is a must see for wolf lovers!

As the wolves howled and roamed around the preserve, I tried to take a few photos with my telephoto. Same as the last time I visited, it was kind of difficult to get through the chain link fence, so there might be some light, blurry lines. However, I feel like it gives the photos a sort of ethereal look to them! And this time around, I managed to get a couple photos of one of the adorable foxes!

Horse Portraits | PA Animal Photography

This summer has been a brutal one. I’m sure we say this every single year, but truly this has been far worse than usual! Yet despite the heavy humidity, the horses and their loving riders at Hampton Stables still endured the weather for some photos. The girls (one being my awesome sister-in-law) wanted some portraits done of their beautiful (and very amusing) horses, and I wanted to share some of the results below. Even though it had been a very hot day, I enjoyed spending my time with them and these interesting animals, and hope to do so again in the future. What personalities!

Silly horse sticking his tongue out!

Animal Photography | Lakota Wolf Preserve

Animal photography has always held a special place in my heart. I visited the Lakota Wolf Preserve in Columbia, New Jersey for the second time today, and it was wonderful as always. I wasn’t able to do the photo tour like last time, but I managed to snag some decent shots with my telephoto. You can see faint, blurry lines of the chain link fence, but I think it gives the photos a rather unique look! I can’t wait to go back soon and hopefully be able to do the photo tour again. It’s such an experience.
