Meet Anna

I am a 33 year-old wife, mama, horse lover (of course), full time project manager, and photographer. I'm married to my wonderfully supportive husband, Kris, and together we have our 6 year-old son named Lane. 

We live in the Sierra Foothills of California in a small town called Valley Springs. We have 4 horses: Quin, Dolly, Oreo, and Iggy. Pictured with me is Quin, my little heart horse. Quin is a 20 year old registered Quarter Horse who was trained as a cowhorse - she sparked my obsession with the western performance horse. She has spent her recent years being retired and loved on, with scratches and cuddles being some of her most favorite things (she definitely does not fit the red mare stereotype.) And! She gave me a 2021 filly by Brother Jackson. 

I fell in love with horses at a very young age, but didn't begin riding until I was 12. I was actually a little terrified of horses when I was little, but was introduced to horseback riding as a therapeutic outlet after the loss of my dad. It didn't take long for me to discover how fun (addicting?) they are to be around, and I developed a really strong passion for understanding them. Horses have so many wonderful and individual characteristics, and I found myself wanting to capture that and share it with others - especially with the people that love them.
