Just like people, some horses are more photogenic than others.
While folks see Jet's picture and comment on how pretty she is, I think they're just seeing the color. In person, she's okay. On camera? Not so okay. I don't know; she just doesn't do it for me.
Sunny, too. Cute little horse, but hard to get a really great shot of her.
Quiet Storm is fun to photograph. She's always willing to put on a show of some sort, and it always amazes me when the pictures actually turn out!
But the horse who far and away is my favorite for portraits is Regalo. There's just something terribly romantic about the way this horse looks into the camera.
Regalo was adopted in 2004 by my friend Cheryle (who's last name I will not butcher in an attempt to spell it here.) She'd seen him at a 2003 adoption but was unable to take him at that time. She was thrilled beyond belief when she found him again a year later!
