Photo Shoot

My mom drove me crazy for months demanding a good picture of me and Jason. I really don't like having my picture taken. Mom was extremely persistent though. I finally caved after almost a year of constant harassing from my mother about pictures. Through a friend I learned of Kathy Ziegler. Kathy spent some time one afternoon in September with Jason, myself and some of the dogs and horses and she took so many wonderful pictures for us. Kathy works in both the middle Tennessee area and in the San Diego. She does lots of weddings, but she also does a lot of portraits. She has many horsemen and women in her roster of clients. Being a horsewoman herself Kathy is excellent at capturing great shots of people with their horses and other pets. Following are a few pictures from our session with Kathy. I'll have more in the next post, there were so many! Be sure to visit Kathy's website and book a session with her!


Bonnie has the star and the snip; Lexi has the stripe and three socks

Things didn't always go as planned!

Aww, I'm so jealous! Your pictures were great. Can't wait to see the rest. Someday I want to do that too. I worked with a photographer at a AQHA show and he did pictures of the ring steward and her daughter just messing around and they were amazing. Some people just have the talent.

Love the one of you two looking at eachother! My brother is in photography school, so my husband and I get to be subjects for him a lot and consequently end up with many great pics. It's really great to find someone that can capture the horses well too. Can't wait to see the rest!

I also do some photography. :D

I've been trying to set up a photo shoot just like the one you had for my Christmas cards.....it's just so hard to have the weather & everything else cooperate!

I'm gonna check out her website!
