I had the privilege of meeting this fantastic family via my work with Santa Fe Christian Schools in Solana Beach, CA. The world quickly became a small one when we realized that the dad and I had sailing in common and may have even competed in many of the same races.
Our first session together was a great one Leo Carrillo Ranch, but I always knew that I wanted to photograph them at the barn at U.K. Equestrian Center because that’s were they spend so much time as a family.
I also wanted to include horses in a session, so I’d get some time to be around the sights and smells that I miss from growing up around the stables. It was a fun filled, adventurous session as we found the perfect spots to photograph!
