It's me, Melanie, the horse girl behind the camera...
If you are like me, horses have been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. I first learned to ride on shetland ponies as a kid and later got my first off-the-track Thoroughbred gelding in high school (he was my baby and later retired at home). And just a few years ago, I traded in my helmet and crop for jeans and spurs to pick up western riding! I do miss jumping and the lighter-weight English saddles (haha) but these days I enjoy riding my quarter horse mares and learning to rein and work cattle. I'm just happy on a horse :)
I've been blessed to pursue my dream of photographing people and their horses. God created some pretty amazing animals that we can agree have impacted us in one way or another. Your bond with your horse is unique and I strive to document that whether you're riding, competing, putting in a day's work, or just hanging out at the barn.
Think we'd be a good fit? Feel free to reach out to me for more information on booking your session. I look forward to to hearing from you and creating unforgettable memories with you and your horse!
I photograph primarily in West Tennessee and am available to travel!
