There are some shoots where I have trouble taking a bad photo because the subject is just so good in front of the camera. When you got it, you got it, and Cristina’s got it. This is the second time I had the privilege of photographing Cristina. The first was her mother’s wedding in 2010 (you can see where she gets it).

Cristina loves animals – more than people because people talk too much apparently. She has two horses that she adores. I couldn’t wait to have a shoot with her and her horses – a first for me. After graduating from Redlands East Valley this spring, she’ll be off to pursue a career in prenatal nursing. It was a lot of fun working with Cristina to tell the story of her passions through photography.

Shooting with horses was not without its outtakes.
