Lucca the Very Large Canine Canadian Warmblood Horse


I used to be so thrilled when Lucca’s mother reached out to me, as she’s a previous consumer going again all the way in which to 2015! (You’ll be able to return and see the weblog posts the place I’ve photographed her pets over time: together with Buster, Fae, Leyland, and Nyx, then Nyx, Fae, and Quinzel, and most not too long ago Fae, Nyx, Quinzel, and Slade.) We’ve got enjoyable each time we get collectively, so I knew this time round it wouldn’t be any totally different! Besides perhaps there’s one tiny distinction… Lucca is a horse! He not too long ago joined the household and I used to be honored that his mother requested me to {photograph} him. As a lot as I’m an skilled at canine, horses are a completely in another way animal. *pun supposed* 🙂 Photographing them is a totally totally different skillset that I’ve been engaged on, as a result of whereas canine will at all times be my real love, I genuinely adore working with horses. Capturing them in all of their glory includes a unique tempo, model, gear… all types of adjustments to my regular routine! Plus, one have a look at this stunning boy and also you’ll see why I used to be thrilled to be requested to create some attractive portraits with these two.

One of many actions Lucca and his mother Patrisha get pleasure from doing collectively is competing in native and regional competitions. Patrisha stated that she has lots of enjoyable with it, and (maybe extra importantly) so does he! They do effectively collectively too; at one level we really received to pose them subsequent to their trophy that that they had not too long ago received! How cool is that?!

We had a terrific photograph session within the close by property the place Lucca usually trains and boards. It was great to see their bond; there needs to be an enormous quantity of belief and a powerful relationship between an individual and a horse, so it was nice to see the 2 of them work together. I’ve solely seen Patrisha together with her canine, so to see her together with her horse was merely great. To not point out, horses will be more difficult to work with since they are often particularly fearful, impatient, or simply don’t need to do what you’re asking them to do for portraits. That was NOT the case with Lucca: he was extremely affected person and keen to do something we requested. I used to be very impressed together with his demeanor! For this explicit photograph session we did lots of posed and stationary portraits – so hopefully we are able to let him unfastened at full velocity in some unspecified time in the future sooner or later, since I’d like to seize that too! Regardless, I cherished the slower tempo of our photograph session and it appeared to suit Lucca’s chill vibe completely.


That is Lucca. How lengthy did it take you to fall in love with that face?! 2 seconds? Yep, me too.
