Connecticut horse photography, New Haven County portraits
Mallory has been my son’s riding instructor at Blackhorse since last summer when he first started lessons, so photographing her with a horse so special to her–Sporty–was particularly fun for me :). Sporty had gotten sick a couple of years ago, and Mallory saw him through his 9 month-recovery, and was his first rider once he was well enough to be ridden again. Mallory is going to school for horse rehabilitation, and you can see in her eyes how much she loves these majestic creatures. She has definitely found her passion!
Sporty was a bit wild during our session–maybe he’s camera shy ;-). Mallory knew how to calm him, though. We also both laughed a lot because he was obsessed with grooming her hand with his teeth! You can kind of see him doing it in the first photo. Enjoy!
