Lindsey & Lexi ~Central Illinois Photographer~

Lindsey was kind enough to let me come out to photograph her and her horse, Lexi.  In a previous life, I lived and breathed horses, and now that passion has been directed towards being a mommy & photographer.

Lexi is a gorgeous black & white paint, with quite a bit of spunk in her 10 year old bones.  Lindsey & her husband Clint own a little chunk of property right on Lake Taylorville, so the sunsets are something that photographers dream about.  Add a horse into the mix, and this photographer was in heaven.  Here’s a link to her gallery; I’m absolutely in love with their pictures!  Between the sunset, Lindsey’s willingness for whatever, and Lexi, it was the perfect combination.

I had posted a request on Facebook looking for a horse to photograph, and got lucky to have met Lindsey through some mutual friends.  She had been looking for someone to come out and photograph her baby, and I needed to get in a pasture and play with a horse, so this was a perfect match.  How much do you love this sunset!?

  The coolest part of this day was at the end and being able to help this couple announce their newest addition! (My clients/friends should be proud, I held off hugging Lindsey (who I just met essentially), which I tend to do with pregnancy announcements)! One of grandma’s first purchases for the grandbaby was a pair of cowboy boots, so Lindsey wanted to incorporate those into the announcement.  Make sure you give a shout of congrats to the expecting parents!  I can’t wait to photograph their little one, especially at their property with his/her boots!
