When I got a call from Montanna asking me to get some portraits of her and Levi, I was excited. That’s probably an understatement, but I don’t think I can explain how much I love doing horse & rider portrait sessions! What made Montanna & Levi’s portraits so special is the fact that she is leaving for Europe this Sunday – for 6 whole weeks! – and sadly has to say goodbye to Levi so she can study when she returns. It’s never saying goodbye to anyone, but when you’ve had a bond for so many years, it’s even tougher. Before she leaves the country, she wanted to get some photos of the two of them (and Mum popped round for some photos too), and I was so honoured to be a part of capturing some very special memories!
It took a while for Levi to warm up to having to pose for a camera, and with grass everywhere in sight, we learned that we had to work around Levi – not him around us! And bringing out the treats just brought out the cheekiest face! These two are such a great pair, and I’m hoping that these images will keep the memories of that bond alive for a very long time.
Thanks to Montanna & Levi for being so fantastic to work with and photograph! Montanna, I hope Europe treats you well, enjoy the summer sunshine and bring some back for us! 😉
