On a rainy, dreary, gray day in Burlington, I photographed Lauren and Greg’s engagement photos, but ALSO got to meet their new horse-baby Avie! Who by the way, has a beautiful smile.
Avie is an 8-year-old retired racehorse, and he was AWESOME during our photoshoot! (Avie is the horse on the right in the photos below, but the horse on the left was very interested in being in photos also!)
Near the end of the photoshoot, Lauren and Greg did a quick outfit change…
The rainy weather had no bearing on this equine engagement session – the photos turned out great! It was actually difficult to choose which ones to put in this blog post.
Lauren & Greg – I can’t wait for your wedding in September!
Are you getting married? Looking for a wedding photographer? Get in touch to have me, Jennifer Newberry Photography, capture your wedding, whether it’s in Burlington, Newmarket, Aurora, Richmond Hill, Toronto, Barrie, Waterloo, Hamilton, London, Muskoka, or beyond! I’d love to chat about your wedding plans!
I was absolutely thrilled when Tara contacted me about doing some photos of her family in Stouffville! I haven’t seen Tara and Jeff since their wedding in 2013, and I LOVE re-visiting clients! Since their wedding, their little 8-month-old baby boy certainly grew up (he’s in JK now!), and he also became a big brother!
The Dogs: Norman & Ellie
We started off by doing photos of Tara and Jeff’s two dogs, Norman and Ellie. Ellie is 13 years old, and has a range of health issues, so Tara wanted to make sure she had some good photos of her. It’s surprisingly hard to get really nice photos of a dog who is mostly-blind and deaf! Getting her to look at the camera was quite the challenge for the most part – but Ellie and Norman are both gorgeous golden retrievers!
The Horse: Sully
Tara has had Sully since he was just little, and Sully is now 13 (same as Ellie) and absolutely beautiful! I was surprised to find out that Tara can actually control Sully by issuing commands – even when she isn’t riding him! Almost like a huge trained dog! She had him galloping and cantering and things – I really only thought you could control a horse if you were actually riding it. So, I learned something new!
Everyone loves fall family photos! You really can’t beat the beautiful autumn colours. So of course we did some family photos of Tara, Jeff and their two sons.
Naturally, playing in the leaves was a given when children are involved!
And just before we finished up, some photos of Tara and Ellie together were a must!
