Florida Equine Photographer

Caren & Cruiser

Florida equine photographer takes sunset photos of warmblood gelding in Ocala, FL

I get to travel all over the state as a Florida equine photographer, but my favorite place to travel is Ocala. I love driving through Ocala and seeing the gorgeous barns on every corner. Kandor Farm is one of those gorgeous places. I have enjoyed visiting Kandor Farm and their many horses, riders, and dogs. The property is always immaculate, the people are always friendly, and the horses are more than stunning. The rolling hills in Ocala make for beautiful sunsets and a perfect golden hour for portraits. I love photographing horse and rider sessions in Ocala for that specific reason! We had a spectacular evening for photos with Caren and Cruiser. My favorite place to start for most equine sessions is the arena. The “stable to street” style has become popular and I am totally here for it! Plus, you get to show off your riding discipline while we are at it.

Caren has been in front of my camera a few times, but this time is extra special. She bought Cruiser a few short months ago and he is her first horse. I think she chose the largest horse she could possibly find! Cruiser is a large warmblood, but is an incredibly gentle giant. He was perfect for his photo session and even turned into quite the model. They have only been working together for a short time, but have already come so far. Caren hopes to turn Cruiser into a jumper. They already have a great start! I am so excited to see these two build their partnership together. They already share a special bond together and I know it will only grow stronger with time. Not to mention, Caren’s dog, Noel, had to get a little bit of camera time too!
