Our friend Kaliah has a great big crush on this great big horse!
Gus is a gentle giant - apparently with a large appetite! During our session, he took advantage of the fresh grass and alfalfa found on the locations we shot.
Kaliah is a natural beauty, and very comfortable being in front of the camera. We had such a blast while the sun set during Golden Hour. Kaliah wondered if we'd even get a shot of Gus without his mouth full!
I wanted to try out some lenses that have been collecting dust on the shelf. I have a few old Minolta primes that just don't see space in the camera bag, so I brought some along for this session. I also tossed in a wide prime, and ended up using it mostly. Forgot how crisp and clear this lens was, and the results were awesome.
I really like how the flowering alfalfa added to this image. This shot was my favourite of the entire session - just Kaliah and Gus having a moment...actually, I think she was trying to get him to cooperate, but we had fun!
Kaliah also did her own hair, make-up and accessories, and did a fantastic job. This night will certainly stand out as one of my favourite for the year - thanks again, Kaliah and Gus! Check out some behind the scenes footage on my YouTube channel!
