Lucy’s Modeling Session

Earlier this week, body paint date night shared the professional photos she had done with Eli and it reminded me of one of my most prized possessions – the professional photo shoot I had done with Lucy in the summer of 2013. I was home from college the summer before my senior year and realized it would probably be the last full summer I’d have with her. On top of that, all the nice pro photos I had were show photos – we didn’t have anything that didn’t prominently feature lipstick, silver saddles and 987 bands. (On the record, I have no issue with lipstick, hence see blog name.)

By total chance (fate?) I found an up and coming professional photographer (he’s now a super in-demand wedding photographer) who was game to come try shooting a horse. The resulting images were amazing, if I say so myself.

For a little throwback Thursday, I figured I’d share them here, in part because I love any excuse to pull them out.

  1. Love all of these! I think my favorite is the first one up there with you two behind the trees. It just looks like you’ve got some kind of secret magical place back there.
    I’ve never done a shoot with my horses. But I wish I had with Rio before EPM messed up his face. He was so handsome back in the day!

  2. Gorgeous!! You and Karen are totally making me want to do a photo shoot with Rio 😂. If I ever have extra play money on the budget I think it’d be super fun.

  3. These are stunning. I especially love the one of you guys in the woods:) I just splurged on a photo shoot for me and my horse (the shoot was last night) and I am SO excited to see the images. As a photographer myself, I’m always on the other side of the lens!
