Oooh, this was a fun session! So, Taylor has been a piano student of mine for four years though that has sadly ended this past June as she heads into middle school and has a heavy musical requirement there. She's been such a great student and I'm obviously sad to see her go, but we had some great times in lessons together :)
We are also in LifeGroup/Bible Study with her parents, Dave & Chauntel. I did a session for them a couple of years ago that you can see here, and when Chauntel suggested that she'd like me to do a session of Taylor riding, I jumped at the opportunity!
I went a week early to check out lighting and what the area was like and Taylor was actually riding bareback, so I took pictures already that week as she doesn't ride bareback very often. Then it was back the following week for the actual session. The weather was perfect, it was so much fun and while I thought it would be so picturesque to have Taylor and her horse, Elvis, standing in the grass, he thought it was heaven to have all that fresh grass to eat! We could not get his head up from the grass, though we tried valiantly. However, it was such a blast and I am happy with how they turned out.
