My husband's side of the family lives in Colorado. Whenever we drive up their for a visit, we always take a route through Amarillo, so it worked out perfect for Ashley to book a sunrise shoot while I was passing through her neck of the woods. I loved getting to meet her four awesome mares, her very friendly cats, and the funniest group of guineas ever.

The highlight of this session for me though was getting to meet Jewels, the first Chincoteague Pony I've met in person. I grew up reading Margret Henry's Misty of Chincotegue and always wanted to see the ponies in person. I still have yet to go see the ponies on the island, but if they are as sweet and cool as Jewels... I might need to bring a couple home.
