Indiana Equine Photographer

Welcome to the Family | Equine Portraits in Martinsville, IN by Amy Latka

In late September 2011, I was contacted by a gentleman who was interested in purchasing a portrait session as a gift for his wife.  She had a new horse and they wanted portraits done of both the horse and their family.  And so it was that met Dana C., owner of Ralph, a beautiful bay Arabian gelding. 

Fast forward to last year, when Dana purchased a second horse, another bay Arabian, but this time, a mare.  Like the supermodel whose name she shares, Giselle is a looker!  She has all of the beautiful attributes of a nice Arabian.  Dana's husband contacted me again for another portrait session as a gift.  They were in need of portraits with Giselle.  I was happy to oblige.  

Special thanks go out to Dana and Brooke Coffee of Hill View Arabians for their help preparing and handling horses during this session.  It always nice to have extra hands.

Friendship | Equine Portraits in Greenwood, IN by Amy Latka

We all have those friends that we don't see very often, but that we just pick right back up with as soon as we are together.  Bridgette P. is one of those friends for me.  Though I don't see her often, whenever I do see her smiling face, I know that laughter and good times are not far away.  We met many years ago at a horse show where she was competing and I was the official photographer, and something just clicked.  I think we're of the same tribe.

And so it was especially nice to receive a request from Bridgette for a portrait session.  She was the organizer and coordinator of the Travis Creek Farm mini-sessions I shot back in October.  I jumped at the chance to not only photograph her with her new dressage mount, Hank, but also with her beautiful family.  


Retro Beauty | Equine Portraits in Greenwood, IN by Amy Latka

Another lovely client from October's Travis Creek Farm mini-session day was Kelly and her Thoroughbred, Stewie.  Kelly was simply adorable in her tall boots and belted dress.  There was an air of retro beauty about her.  But really, it was Stewie that stole the show.  Stewie is Kelly's grey OTTB (off-track Thoroughbred) gelding.  He was so happy to play along with portraits.  He stood like a champ and obviously adores Kelly.  Well, lets face it, the adoration is mutual.  Go ahead...see for yourself. :)

Ethereal Glow - Equine Portraits in Greenwood, IN by Amy Latka

A few weeks ago, I had the great pleasure of being the photographer for a mini-session day at Travis Creek Farm in Greenwood, IN.  The day was beautiful and although I was a bit concerned about light being high over head, the fact that it was mid-October helped me relax and know that mid-to-late afternoon light was going to be beautiful.  

One of my clients from this day was Bridget T.  She has a great love of horses and began riding as an adult.  Her lovely gelding is an Off Track Thoroughbred (OTTB) named Buddy, who was patient and kind throughout the portrait session.   Enjoy!
