A girl and her horse

Meet Emma Rose and her horse, Hollie. I recently watched them compete at a horse show, and was utterly amazed by their connection, beauty, concentration and gracefulness as they glided together alone in the rink. It’s so amazing to know a 16-year-old who is already so soulful, thoughtful and has the kind of wisdom and perspective of someone much older. As masterful as she is on the horse, she is powerful with her camera in her hand. She has great ideas, vision and inspires me to learn the art of the darkroom and take risks in life. I’m excited to watch as she completes her senior year of high school and see where life takes her. I know she will soar.

I hope you enjoy these photos of Emma and Hollie. On this day, they tied for second place. Congratulations, little sister.

    I don’t usually use the word “stunning” because it reminds me of something an old grandpa would say, but these photos, Lauren, are STUNNING!! You really captured the grace, concentration, and connection of the two of them!! You’re awesome!

    She looks so comfortable on that horse. I can’t wait to see where her life takes her too! I also really love the editing on this photo because it makes them look like they are old Western photographs. Bravo love!
