Maddy & Murray
Early mornings have a certain feel to them. The quiet, calm, and cool of the morning air lends itself to being a bit eerie, but part of me enjoys that. As I drove out to meet Maddy at Heath Creek Stables, the sun started rising from the horizon Maddy was finishing up grooming Murray and we were welcomed by the barn cat. Maddy decided to brave the cold and be photographed in her prom dress. Standing out in the cold is any feat, but Maddy took it like a champ. After a quick discussion of some of our ideas, we went out to the field where Maddy and Murray would practice their jumping. I asked them to stand in the middle of the field and just to interact together. Murray must have known he was a model, as the interaction and connection of these two began to unfold. There were plenty of hugs, kisses and cuddles and Murray seemed to be enjoying himself. We ended our session in the pasture, getting a few headshots of him by himself. Maddy and Murray had an unspeakable bond, and I loved so many of the pictures I captured of the two of them.
To Maddy and Murray, thank you for braving the cold morning and for sharing a piece of your connection with me.
