Mini Sessions

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.  


Mini Portrait Sessions by Amy Latka

On Saturday, June 13, I was lucky enough to get to spend the day in Bloomington, IN at Persimmon Ridge Farm.  There were a group of ladies down there who wanted portraits with their horses.  We set up a mini-session day, which is a great way to help share the expense and time of a traditional portrait session.  Persimmon Ridge is located on the southwest side of Bloomington.  Its winding driveway, wood fencing, cedar-sided barn, ample trees and pond provide a beautiful backdrop for photo sessions. Be sure to contact me if you're interested in a mini session at your farm. I'm currently booking dates in July, August and September.

Gorgeous light and beautiful subjects create spectacular images.  Its hard to go wrong with these two!

Its clear to see the adoration Katie has for her gelding Duke.  And here, he returns the love.

I love it when clients bring their dogs for a mini session too.  Kathy added her two Great Pyrenees dogs, George and Strider to the farm's gorgeous setting to create lasting memories.

If you've spent any time around horses, you know that for as large as they are, they sure are delicate.  This is Hudson, Kathy's gelding who has been battling EPM on and off since January 2014.

These two beauties are Amy and Cora.  I first met Amy during a portrait session a couple years back with a previous horse.  Cora is a Thoroughbred mare (if you know me, you know TB mares are my favorites!) who has found her forever home with Amy.

This gorgeous girl is Mo, a registered Quarter Horse mare.  She is owned and loved by Chris.  Mo just looks stunning on a dark backdrop.

And Mo looks stunning on a green backdrop too.  Its hard to make a redhead this gorgeous look bad!
