Hailey, Ariel, Flynn + Ella | Horse and Rider Session in NICHOLASVILLE Kentucky at Alpha Farms | Kentucky Equine Portrait Photographer Rebecca Beatty

It had been a hot minute since I’ve been out to Alpha Farms, so when Hailey messaged me about a free session she had won, I was a bit excited to go back out to the farm that kind of started my Equine business.

When Hailey got the notification that she won, IMMEDIATELY she messaged me to let me know what ideas she had, all about her horses, everything that was beneficial to know, this girl was prepared!

Both Ariel and Flynn are off the track Thoroughbreds that Hailey actually competes with them in western disciplines. For example, Ariel is actually Hailey’s barrel horse! And I’ve seen these two race and boy are they SO good!!

Now Ella is a new project for Hailey. Ella was raised with an Amish family and right now only has that “work all the time” mindset, but Hailey is determined to get this horse on to a new life full of fun adventures!

Not to mention Flynn (Hailey’s four legged child lol) loves the water, so right when the sun was sitting right on the horizon in the most PERFECT spot, we rushed down to the little creek that you have to cross to get to the barn, and we got some AMAZING WATER SHOTS!

I’m seriously y’all, when I say I’m in love, it’s just an understatement.

Check out some of my favorite shots from Hailey’s horse and rider session!
