When I think of vivacious, stunning, and positive, I think of Carly. She will walk into a room with drop dead gorgeous red, wild hair and an enormous smile. She’s such a great person and feel so lucky to know her. I have photographed her through modeling, through her first baby boy, her marriage to Justin, and now, pregnant with her second boy. And in celebration of so many great blessings in her life we decided on a photoshoot with her horses, Champ and Lucy. I’ve always known that she loved riding and the horses that she grew up with, so finally meeting them just sweetened the deal even more. She and her father trained two incredible creatures full of poise and sweetness. It made me really consider getting into riding and possibly adopting a horse but I’m not quite sure if my husband will agree to that!
At JR Performance Horses, we met for some bonding time with Champ and Lucy. Champ was up first and quickly I realized that he’s the gentlest of gentleman. He would follow me around just for company and when no one was looking I’d sneak him some hugs and kisses. Then there’s Lucy, the free spirit that’s full of beauty. It was fun watching her gallop in the arena and play with Carly. We of course ended the session with Justin and their son, Gabe for a family portrait. Looking at them all together, I couldn’t be happier that they have another child on the way. They are such a beautiful family and I’m so glad I’ve been able to watch them flourish together!
