Spring Green WI Horse & Rider Session | Olivia

Sometimes I get to photograph things that just absolutely light my creative heart up and re-inspire the passion that made me start all this in the first place, and this session was one of them! My friend Olivia, the super talented senior portrait photographer behind Olivia Leigh Productions, has horses and is basically a dream client, so one Sunday afternoon I drove to Spring Green, Wisconsin while she brought two of her horses and her camera up to a field on their property for a shoot.

We got plenty of images of her with her horses, but snuck in a few headshots while we were at it! Gorgeous lady!

Aren’t they just the cutest couple??!!!! Olivia is one of the sweetest, spunkiest people I know and it’s been so fun getting to know her better!

Think you want a session with your horse too? Here are a few tips for your horse and rider session:

  • Evaluate – Does your horse do okay on his own, or will he need another horse nearby to stay calm?
  • Groom and Fly spray your horse before the session!
  • Choose a location that is either on the same property that your horse is on, or that is easy to get too. It’s a good idea to discuss this with your photographer ahead of time!

Ps, this blush dress is from one of my fave online boutiques, Citrus & Lemon!

This evening was so perfect – the light was dreamy! This was an hour or two before “golden” hour and it’s my most favorite time to shoot because the light is softer but not too yellow yet!

Simply magical! Olivia, thanks for being awesome! <3 Amy
