Photographing horses had always been a creative dream of mine. The initial challenge I faced was my own insecurity and fear. I was so reluctant to ask anyone if I could photograph their horses. It took five years of living by my neighbor who has three horses before I finally had the nerve to go ask if I could photograph them. I realize just saying that sounds so crazy. It is so sad how much we deny ourselves by letting fear take over the driving wheel. My approach for this horse shoot was to capture these beautiful animals in the area they call home, in the same manner, I conduct my family lifestyle sessions. Start by observing how they interact with each other at their own home and not pose them at all.
In Iceland, you feel small. You forget your problems as you drive and gaze upon Icelandic horses, miles of adorable sheep, rainbows, glaciers, mountains, storms, abandoned farms, oceans, black sand, mammoth waterfalls, and all within a days time.
