“The hooves of horses!
Oh! witching and sweet
Is the music earth steals from the iron-shod feet;
No whisper of lover, no trilling of bird,
Can stir me as much as hooves of horses
Have stirred.” -Ogilvie

alright. so technically fawkes is not a “filly” anymore but…if she has her way, she’ll continue to be known as one. 😉 i had a blast photographing Lindsay and Fawkes over the weekend. the weather was perfect. we got out. we got some vitamin D and we caught some great shots in the process. enjoy!!

  1. Elizabeth, thank you so much for the wonderful pictures of Fawkes and me. Your style of avoiding the “stiff poses” suited us well, and your horse sense made for a fun and relaxed experience that resulted in images I am so happy to share. I’m looking forward to another session with some riding shots!

  14. Gorgeous photos!!! I especially love the black and white one with Linny’s eyes closed and the one of Fawkes close up. She look wild in that photo! Lovely!!

  15. If you do a photo shoot at our place, you can practice pics of goats too! Nice photos of Lindsay and Fawkes. I’m sure your business will be a big success.

  16. Thank you all for your sweet comments!! :)

  17. Beautiful girls all the way around. Lindsey,you just look like you belong with a horse. I bet you had fun doing this.

  18. Anyone that knows horses, knows how difficult it is to photograph them without their ears pinned back! These are spectacular, and I would definitely recommend you to all my equine-loving friends… starting with me!! Soo……. interested in shooting a particularly spunky Arab named Midnite TTTTTTTTserenade? :)

  19. I thought I’d have another gander at this photo shoot…I can’t get over how grown up Fawkes is! Really beautiful pictures Elizabeth!!

  20. Thanks, Katherine!

  21. Really cool shots my talented daughter-in-law took of two beautiful fillies.
    Only thing prettier I can think of are my darling granddaughters, Audrey, Madeline and Caroline.
    Carmen and I are at Shelton Wineries picking up my 50th birthday barrell.
    We will toast fine wine and fine fillies.

    Have a great weekend, Friends.
