I recently had the awesome experience of meeting Karen and her horses on her gorgeous farm, Picalata Farms to provide equine and equestrian photography services. The moment you pull in the front gates you know gorgeous backdrops are going to be easy to find. Between the beautiful barn, pretty fence lines, grassy pastures and sparkling pond horses are found happily grazing. We started with Karen and her long-time horse, Rebel who certainly didn't mind posing for the camera in his jingle bells! After photographing Karen and Rebel we moved on to meet Ike and Luke, giant white Percheron brothers. Luke and Ike were carriage horses out of Dayton, Ohio rescued by Last Chance Corral after experiencing abuse and neglect. Luke and Ike have now found their forever home with Karen at Picalata Farms in St. Augustine, Florida. For more information on Picalata Farms or Luke and Ike's story following their links above. In the meantime check out just a small sampling of the equine and equestrian images I captured while on location! Peace, love and rescue!
