bareback baby | hampton roads newborn photographer

This is the story of my first “casting call” in virgina beach — a photo shoot where I get the opportunity to try new ideas and in return, you provide the models. Be on the lookout for more information on how you can take advantage of these upcoming opportunities!

Before baby liam was born, his mama chatted with me about a unique session idea. The day of the shoot was incredibly hectic and we trekked to Pungo with this two-week-old guy to attempt a specific shot. Would he sleep? Could we pull it off? Would the horse cooperate? As soon as we stepped foot on the ranch, the stress of the day faded and i just enjoyed the view–sprawling fields, unending wooden stables and the soft light of sunset. No wonder this was his mama’s favorite hideaway.

Jackson (the gorgeous horse in the photo) had been hanging out in the pasture all day — so he was relaxed and gentle. So, with Jackson, Liam, his mommy Bonnie and a handler, we headed to the field to work on getting baby Liam to sleep and Jackson in position. The setting sun dipped behind some unexpected clouds — so we worked fast (doing out best to ignore Jackson’s curious pasture mates who kept blocking the camera!) We got the shots — well, as close as we could considering the light and a restless baby. We had time for a few mama snaps and wrapped it up, trudging home in the dark. (bareback baby is a composite FYI – mama and handler were removed from the image and he was held the entire time)

Thank you Bonnie for supporting my vision and for making it your own! I had a blast at the ranch and can hardly wait to go back.
