I enjoy reading blogs, especially those with gorgeous backgrounds in the photos. While I do try to stage some of my photos, for the most part I shoot, write and publish. For some time, I've wanted to post some photos of my wonderful boy Nick, and perhaps even some ridden shots. It hasn't happened because 1)I need a photographer for the ridden photos, 2)my chosen photographer hates, hates, hates the cold, and 3)Nick is growing out a bad haircut (totally my fault as I trimmed him as though he were an Arabian).
It's hard enough getting all the stars aligned for a horse photo shoot, but then I add in the need to look good myself. Pressure, too much pressure. So, in typical Mary fashion, I decided that you would love to see the real me, the real Nick, and ignore the dismal lighting on a very cold, windy day.
