When a college friend asks “Do you want to do a photoshoot with her new horse” of course you say yes! Kristin has been riding for a few years now, and it’s so exciting to see Kristin find the right horse. Kristin found Vinny this summer, and after seeing them together for a couple minutes as we got ready to shoot it was obvious that this is a match made in heaven. I’m not familiar with horses but was surprised to be so completely comfortable around Vinny. He is a really sweet horse, and it was adorable hearing Kristin talk to her baby Vinny.
We started out their session together at Kilkern Farm in Millis, MA on a beautiful Fall Saturday morning. Kristin made sure Vinny was ready for his debut. For the record, I had not photographed a horse before so I was going into it not sure what to expect. I can sometimes be skittish on new adventures, but of course thought to myself this is a new adventure and a great opportunity to try something different. I was able to pet Vinny, which he loves, and also held his reins and he was incredible! I even got a photo with him! Horses are amazing, gorgeous animals. It was nice to be able to get the chance to spend some time with one.
It’s pretty obvious Kristin loves Vinny and he loves her back, it shows. Kristin enjoy your new addition to your family, and you never know but I may one day get into Equestrian Photography! Don’t forget to follow my adventures on Instagram here with the hashtag #jenarayaadventures. Enjoy some of my favorite images from their photoshoot.
