Payton//Ponies & Pearls//Arizona Child Photographer

Payton is one of the youngest Ponies & Pearls participants to date! I love working with children this age. They are fearless and have this innate ability to communicate with the horse. It's a way of sharing life with animals that doesn't last long, but is fascinating to witness. Her utter adoration of the horse shone through in every image. 

Payton, it was an absolute pleasure to work with you on this beautiful session.

Olivia//Ponies & Pearls//Arizona Child Photographer

Olivia. A name, I always thought, befit a princess. Princess Olivia, doesn't it just have a lovely ring to it?

Then one day I met this girl and I thought there was never a more perfect Olivia. A special kind of grace and kindness emanate from her. She might be a little shy, but she is fierce, and strong and determined to give everything her all. Ask her to do something frightening, like sit on this big tall horse that doesn't want to stand still, and you will have to watch very closely to see any sign of trepidation before she reigns it all in and sets herself to do it and do it well. Her images are always stunning because her sweet spirit exudes through them all. 

I just had to pick this dress from Sew Trendy Accessories for her because if every I knew a Princess Olivia, this is she. Small, mighty and fierce. 

Ps. I just wanted to finish with a HUGE thank you to Olivia for coming out the very next day and rocking the camera for a one-on-one mentoring sessions. As we agreed, Modeling for a mentoring session is a whole different game and not at all easy, but she was fantastic!
