Emma + Captain | Goldenwest Stables | Huntington Beach, California

My favorite little model child Emma got to grace my camera again with her new buddy Captain! Emma was one of those girls that really helped kick start my business moving to Orange County after I photographed her and her favorite lesson horse Cruiser.

Cruiser was retired this last year and poor Miss Emma was devastated! Luckily her amazing trainer Kara brought a new American Mustang, Captain, into the program and just like that: Emma had a new best friend!

I love that Emma’s mom see’s the importance of documenting these important moments in her daughter’s life (this is session #4 with them!) as she continues to grow up into the amazing woman I know she will be! I’m obviously also counting down the days until I can see this girl compete!

Check out some of the highlights of my favorites below. :)
