Horses, Cameras & Carriages

Welcome to my world of horses, cameras, carriages and the art of photography!

My journey into photography was inevitable, as I hail from a family that has always cherished the power of images. My family instilled in me a deep appreciation for capturing moments through photos, movies, and videos. Preserving memories from the past is a value that runs deep in my veins.

From the very beginning, I aimed for the best quality in my photography, even if I only had a point-and-shoot camera. This striving for excellence has been the driving force in my photography development.

As a child and teenager, I rode hunter horses, and this experience has been an integral part of my equestrian journey. Growing up, although I shared my world with horses, I was obsessed with horses pulling carriages. As I rekindled my equestrian pursuits after starting a family, I followed an obsession into the world of carriage driving. A few carriage ponies later, I compete at the preliminary level in combined driving, alongside my trusty companions, Bob and Ozzy.

I've directed my lens towards the captivating world of combined driving, capturing moments that are both thrilling and beautiful. What sets me apart is my ability to combine my fervor for driving with my ever-expanding body of photographic work.  My photography experiences range from being an official event photographer to curating social media event photography and coordination, often juggling both roles simultaneously. You may have spotted me at prestigious events like the Garden State CDE and Live Oak International, where I've been honored to document the excitement and elegance of top drivers in the combined driving world.

I am a proud photography team member of Hippoevent, Austria. Hippoevent is a large, website-based media outlet committed to covering the international level of combined driving competitions happening around the world.

I am the only Hippoevent team member in the United States.

My credentials also boast being a member of the International Alliance of Equestrian Journalists, and my contributions as a journalistic photographer have graced the pages of esteemed publications such as The Chronicle of the Horse, Horse Illustrated, and Driving Digest, where two of my photos have earned the distinction of being featured as cover honors as a contributing photographer. My work has also been showcased in several breed-associated trade magazines and on prominent websites, including the Florida Thoroughbred Breeders' & Owners' Association and Marion County Tourism/Ocala Florida.

Whether behind the lens or behind a pony you'll often find me at events with my faithful Jack Russell Terrier, Winifred, who never misses an opportunity to share in the excitement.

Join me on this journey!
