I can't believe how fast time flies, especially when you become a mother. My life has literally evolved around my three children throughout the last twelve years. I still can't believe I have a tweenager! So, as any mother would want to treasure their children's youth, I wanted to remember my sweet Penelli with pictures. She's growing up so fast and I use to take pictures of her every other month before she started going to school. Now, she's a middle schooler and I've been slacking so, this was my chance (and excuse) to get some cooperative shots before she gets any older (and refuse to take cheesy pictures with Mommy.) Since Penelli's birthday was in the summer, and the weather has been so nice, I thought it would be perfect to do an outdoor shoot around some of her favorite things - beautiful scenery and horses.
As much as Penelli admires horses, she has not been around them much. We use to flip through horse picture books and draw horses together. That was the beginning of her admiration for this beautiful, magnificent creature. The horses at Fort Mill, SC are so friendly. We were not anticipating on being this close to a horse but this mother and foal loved our company. They were extremely calm and gentle and we were lucky enough to get some captures of the kids petting them.
