Francois {equine} Texas Equine Photographer

This is a follow up post to a super fun session I did in the fall for Lee & Holly Francois at their home.¬† I ran over to Silverado in Weatherford to get a few additional images to use to build them a “Thank-you” ad to run during the holidays and the first of the year in Quarter Horse News and The Chatter.¬† I love this shot of their top hand, Sydney….

New year, new look!

I have been ready for a fresh look for a little while, just needed a little inspiration and encouragement.¬† I found that last November when I attended For the Love Workshop (for the second time, and yes, it’s THAT good).¬† One of the sponsors was Green Tent Design and Marketing, and they sent JD (Jim) McCulley¬†to represent.¬† Of course he was one the many wonderful people I have encountered at these incredible workshops.¬†¬†JD is¬†an incredible designer and photographer, and¬†I’m so blessed to have worked with him.¬† During the design process, they interview you to really get in touch with your personality, style, and needs to help you “brand” your business for marketing.¬† Through this process, I explained that I didn’t want to stray too much from the look I have, just freshen it up, and include something that is dear to me.¬†¬†Over the years, I have come to love the scissortail bird that is a native to this area.¬† Me and the kids, especially Henley, really love watching for them¬†and admiring God’s¬†beauty in the graceful birds.¬† The tail parts in the middle to varying degrees while in flight, and creates the “scissor.”¬† They are a tan/grey color with a beautiful peachy/orange breast.¬†

Anyway, I really struggled with¬†using a bird because they are so popular right now in the photography industry in logos….¬† but JD really encouraged me to go with it because it is so personal, and I have a true love for them through frequent encounters here¬†at the ranch.¬† Who¬†cares what anyone else is doing, right???¬† Here’s my scissortail on the barbed wire, and the circles represent the lens of a camera….

So, here it is…¬† the original Green Tent design on the left, and my color changes¬†on the right.¬† I’ll still use both, just probably the brown one more with¬†my¬†equine/livestock marketing, and the fun green one for my lifestyle portraiture to really catch the eye of one of my favorite subjects- high school seniors!¬† Watch for some fun t-shirts with the logo this spring ūüôā¬† Thanks so much JD- I highly recommend him and the team at Green Tent!!!!

Fightin’ 7 Ranches {equine}

¬†I have been shooting sale horses and designing ads for¬†over a year now for Fightin’ 7 Ranches of Stephenville, Texas.¬† They focus on having a great selection of quality team roping horses for different skill levels.¬† Most of these horses are pretty, colored geldings that anyone would be proud to ride.
