There is nothing as wonderful as seeing a child find her passion, especially when you get to watch it happen. Almost exactly a year ago this beautiful girl and I met for the first time for a Ponies & Pearls session. Despite hardly speaking to me the entire session, her love of horses shown through in the way she hugged the horse. Her desire to spend her days outside shone from the way she lovingly pet the pony and could not take her eyes off the pony. I was so thrilled when her mom took her to Soaring Dreams Ranch, LLC. to begin lessons a couple weeks later.
This little one's passion for horses is huge. If we are at the ranch she tells me about all the horses she's ridden, if we are in the car she asks me how many horses I've photographed at the ranch, if I run into her in the street she tells me about her most recent ride. But, my absolute favorite is when we do a horse session and she's asking me how many days until we have another. No matter how the conversation begins, it always comes back around to horses.
Now, almost a year into lessons and showing with Soaring Dreams Ranch, I loved seeing the growth and confidence she has around horses. With that kind of passion, we just had to split up her session to capture pictures with her mom's favorite horse and Mckenna's favorite pony. How lucky are we to work with a Ranch like Soaring Dreams that goes out of their way to make everyone's dreams come true? There's truly no better place to fall in love with riding.
