My latest work involves the exploration into the construction of photomontages. I have been conducting an in-depth look at the world of Photoshop. I wanted to share some images with you.

The work can be described as whimsical and intuitive.

I hope you enjoy them.

Summer Highlights

Lately the scent of fall has been in the air here in Kentucky. Summer seems to be coming to an end for the Bluegrass. Summer time is always such a busy time for my business. This summer has been so exciting! I was hired to do so many great shoots. Three shoots stand out in my mind as my favorites. I just wanted to share them with you.

I was hired this summer by the Chronicle of the Horse to take photos at Hagyard-Davidson and McGee Equine Medical Hospital, The article was for the “Behind the Barn  Doors” series into one of the largest equine medical facilities in the world. The experience was amazing! I was able to witness orthopedic surgeries, colic surgeries, MRI machines in use, and removal of a tumor on a mare’s uterus, hypobaric chambers, and ICU barns. To see this article look at you’re July 4th, 2008 copy of the magazine.

Another summer highlight was a commercial shoot that I did for a new company called ProRide Horse Transportation, Owners Stacy and Keith Newsome were absolutely wonderful people. If you ever need to have your horse transported anywhere in the country I highly recommend that you call them. They will take care of your horse as if they were their own. I can’t say enough about them.

For the past three summers I have been hired as the Official Breyerfest photographer. I have been a Breyer Horse Model collector since I was two years old. Shooting for Breyer has been a dream come true for me. This year the editor of JAH (Just About Horses) Arlene Newman wrote a daily blog from Breyerfest. If you want to see some of my images from Breyerfest, Click here to check out the highlights of this amazing event! 

There were so many other great shoots that I did this summer but do not have time to write about all of them. Thank you to all my clients who hired me for photographs over the summer.

The tragic death of Frodo Baggins

I have shot professionally at Rolex Kentucky 3 Day event for four years now. This year was the first year out of the four that two horses had to be euthanized after tragic falls on the cross country course.  

Here's the following press release: 

Saturday, April 26, 2008 Press Statement #2

Frodo Baggins and Laine Ashker fell at fence 5. Ashker sustained injuries but was conscious, talking and able to move all extremities when she was transported to the University of Kentucky Hospital. She is currently under the care of the emergency and trauma services staff.

Frodo Baggins was immediately attended by a team of veterinarians. He was given intravenous fluids and supportive medications for shock and pain. After he was stabilized, he was sedated and transported by horse ambulance to nearby Hagyard Equine Medical Institute, where he was immediately attended by emergency personnel.

Further tests showed that Frodo Baggins had sustained a fracture at the base of his skull, as well as severe lung injury. As the prognosis was very poor, a representative of the family concurred that euthanasia was the most humane option for the horse. A complete necropsy examination will be performed. Everyone at the event is saddened by the loss of this brave horse.

My husband and I had just left jump number 5 moments before the tragic accident. I thank God I did not witness the fall. 

I wanted to post a picture of Frodo Baggins. It's my favorite picture that was taken on dressage day. I love the way he looks out into the crowd as if basking in the moment... 

God Bless you Frodo Baggins. We will miss you.
