Sonoma County Equestrian Senior Portraits/ Hannah and her Arabians

This is a photo shoot I’ve been meaning to share for a while……There are just so many photos I loved, it was hard to narrow down.

Hannah was photographed last fall at her home and fabulous horse ranch “Hidden Gem Farms” in Petaluma. The name suites it perfectly! The idyllic ranch was recently purchased by the family and focuses on the Arabian breed. HGF Performance Trainer Donna Waggoner (Hannah’s trainer) came to Hidden Gems to work with the Arabians and her clients. Hannah, an accomplished rider, practices the riding disciplines of Saddle Seat and Sidesaddle! With Mom, Julie Scudder-Feldman in charge of putting together the stunning riding attire and props. Hannah pulling favs from her closet, the styling options were endless. I wish I could have photographed all of them! Not to mention, beautiful places to shoot at every turn.

Three different horses were used for the photo shoot. Malieka, a stunning mare, is seen in the Sidesaddle photos. Kaz was ridden in the Saddle Seat photos and Bogie (PS Huk Me Up) is seen in the first set of bareback photos with Hannah in the forest green sweater. Being a dressage rider myself for the past 15 years, I can certainly see the talent and beauty of Hannah’s riding and these exquisite horses.
