Reba gets a Bath: Horse Photography in Highland Village, Texas

Family & Lifestyle
December 19, 2016

During the Thanksgiving break I visited my family in Dallas. We did a little of this, a little of that; ate some good food. Giving thanks stuff.

On one of our empty afternoons we visited Reba in the stables for a bath! Reba is my sisters lovely horse that I shot earlier in the year. It was fun watching the process as I never get to be around horses.

A lot of brushing.

A lot of water.

A lot of soapy suds.

A clean horse in the end!

Loved hanging out at the stables, the horses told so many stories. Here are a few:

The setting was perfect; the sun hid under billowy clouds of bl ...

[sunrise] Somewhere in Dallas: a girl + her horse
A girl and her horse. I was thrilled to shoot a horse for the first time (professionally!)- what a thrill. These creatures are so big and so majestic and so unpredictably lovely. We braved the 29 degree Texas morning and headed out to the stables. The grass had a crisp layer of frost and the pond was waking up to a stream of misty fog. The sun rose just in time to start the day and warm our frozen fingers and toes. Reba, the horse, was happy to take a morning trot around the pen.
