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!

The very first photograph I took of Logan, a.k.a. “Eeyore”…

All Logan needs is a horn!

He’s so adorable and laid back…and also needs a unicorn horn.

Adorable Logan.

Zoey’s Morning Routine | PA Pet Photograghy

This morning I looked down our little “s”-shaped hallway to find Zoey sitting by the door, patiently waiting for my husband to come back in with Chewie. This is a morning routine for her and I was hellbent on getting photographic evidence of it! Silently rushing into the office, I snapped on my telephoto lens before crawling across the floor (yes, I actually crawled) to peer around the corner. I had no time to turn on any lights or adjust much in way of camera settings because she was bound to catch on. Zoey dislikes getting her photo taken and has this radar, this strange sixth sense for knowing when a camera is pointed at her. It’s so ridiculous that I had written this previous blog about how to deal with a shy dog like that, and being sneaky is a major key. I managed to snag a few shots before she noticed. The last image you see was right before she rushed towards me like a ball of fluffy lightning.

Zoey patiently waiting by the door for Daddy and Chewie to come back.

“Is that a camera, Mom?”
