Equine and Dance Photography

In 2013 I had the idea to start an Etsy shop because I wanted to share the beauty and grace of my two passions with everyone.

My photography stems from a life long love of horses and ballet. Horses have been in my life for as long as I can remember. Growing up, my family had a beautiful black American Saddlebred named Darlin. I was absolutely in love with her and the day we had to say goodbye is still burned into my memory. I was very young and only have one picture to remember her which is where my passion for equine fine art portraits began.

Ballet is what kept me sane in my childhood/teenage years... or maybe it made me crazy, I don't know! I've never been good with words, but always good with movement. I had a very short professional career due to injuries, but photography has given me the chance to stay in the dance world. Ballet is art and strength combined and I love to capture that through the lens.

Whether I'm working on portrait sessions or my personal fine art work, I love what I do and hope to capture images that speak to the heart.
