Wherever you feel most at peace with your horse, that's where I want to meet you. Whether it's high in the mountains, amongst the grass of the prairies, or beside the endless horizon of the ocean, I'll help you plan your perfect session down to the finest of details. Take a look at some of my favorite connections from the last year.

"Through the days of love and celebration and joy, and through the dark days of mourning – the faithful horse has been with us always."

Hey y'all, I am Maureen Friedly

It all started with my first DSLR after my daughter was born in 2014. I've always been artistically inclined, so picking up a camera and capturing the daily life of my family felt so natural. Much of that daily life involved our animals and the moments we shared with them.

From that grew a passion for capturing the human/animal connection. Especially when that connection was between horse and rider.

Maureen was amazing to work with! She had awesome ideas for posing, gave great instructions, and best of all she put out great horse vibes! My 2 geldings were so mellow during the shoot. The lighting she captures is absolutely gorgeous and these are photos I’ll really treasure!
