Every summer I fall back in love with photographing outside on a gorgeous summer evening. Jackson Hole winters can get long and as much as I love to shoot in my studio nothing compares to the golden evening backlight. Add a little breeze, a gorgeous girl and a well behaved horse and it turns to magic. My beautiful friend Tessa honored me by asking if I would photograph her and of course I said yes. Our friend Jim Walter was kind enough to let us use his house on fall Creek Road and the one and only Melvin (his beautiful pony). Melvin is as his name implies…quite a character as well as an excellent rope horse and all around good mount and it turns out he is quite the model as well. Tessa and Melvin got along exceptionally and it made for a fantastic photo shoot!
