On beautiful afternoon in late July, I had the honor of doing Nicole’s senior portraits, with two of her favorite horses, Bert and Quick. We were lucky enough to be able to shoot around some awesome locations at Country Hill Farm, where she rides in Westminster, MD. Nicole is a great young lady with an easy and infectious smile. In fact it’s not possible to make her stop smiling. I know, because I tried!
During the shoot, Bert was quite the ham, but Quick just wasn’t “feelin it”. So we worked through it and she eventually came around. Maybe she heard me tell Nicole I had apples for treats after the shoot.
Nicole is surely headed for great things with her beautiful smile, and can do attitude. I’ve had the pleasure of photographing in the show ring over the last couple years, and her dedication and determination shows in the ribbons she brings home, and the high regard her fellow riders hold her in.
I’d also like to give a special thanks to Nicole’s mom, Cathy, and friend Mikaela for assisting during the shoot, and taking behind the scenes photos that can be found on facebook and Instagram. :)
