Ava and Billy

I am so excited to share with you some of the photos from my latest shoot with Ava and her white pony. It was such a special and magical experience to capture these moments in a gorgeous flower field.


Ava is a lovely girl who loves her pony more than anything. They understand each other so well, and they have so much fun together. You can see the joy and love in their eyes when they look at each other.


We decided to do the shoot in a flower field, because it matched their personalities perfectly. The flowers were in full bloom, creating a colorful and dreamy backdrop. The sun was shining, the breeze was gentle, and the air was filled with the sweet fragrance of the flowers. It was like a fairy tale come true.


I am so grateful that I had the opportunity to document this special bond between Ava and her pony. It is such a rare and precious thing to see a child and an animal connect so deeply and genuinely. It reminded me of how important it is to capture your children before they grow up too quickly and to capture the magic of childhood and the bond between children and ponies.


They were such a cute and charming pair, and I had a wonderful time capturing their bond. But what you may not know is the funny behind the scenes team we had while photographing them in the flower field.


You see, Billy is a very friendly and playful pony, and he likes to interact with everyone and everything. He also likes to follow Ava wherever she goes, which is very adorable, but sometimes makes it difficult to get the shots we want. So we had to come up with a creative way to keep him in place and make him look at the camera.


That’s where Ava’s mother, Lene, came in. She was our secret hero. She hid behind the vintage chair that we used as a prop, and she held Billy’s reins firmly ( Which I have edited out). She also had some treats with her, which she used to reward Billy for staying still and looking at me. She was so good at it, that you can’t even see her in the photos.


But she wasn’t the only one who helped me out. I also had a team behind me, who were giggling and making noises to get Billy’s attention. They were waving their hands, clapping their feet, and shaking some packets. They were so funny and enthusiastic, that they made Billy curious and interested. They also made me smile and relax, which is always a good thing.


I want to thank Lene and my team for being such amazing helpers and friends. They made the shoot so much smoother and more enjoyable. They also made me laugh a lot, which is always a bonus. I think they deserve a big hug for their effort.





That’s all for today, folks. I hope you enjoyed this behind the scenes story, and I hope it made you chuckle. Stay tuned for more updates from my photography adventures.


Bye for now!
