This is another of my lost blog post series. It’s a redux of a post that I feel certain I created and shared earlier this year but which disappeared into thin air.
This session actually took place back in February on a very cold and rainy day, and Nicholas was a GREAT SPORT about his outdoor session.
I love photographing guys who are just a little bit quiet and shy.
It’s fun to see how they relax once they realize that I won’t make them do anything cheesy for the camera, once they realize that they won’t have to smile like the Cheshire Cat until their jaws hurt.
Nicholas is one of those guys
It was his 17th birthday when we met for our session at his family home. Nicholas is quite an accomplished horseman, so we spent most of our time in and around the barn.
And this is Smokey. There’s not much in this world that can compare to the velvety smooth nose of a horse. SWOON!
We wrapped up our session with frozen fingers and frozen toes — and an extra nose rub and hug for Smokey.
