Love seeing horses getting a little extra pampering! Photographing horses being massaged offers lot of opportunities for fun horsey expressions. Stephanie is working on promoting her business and I think these new flyers (still a work in progress) will help her out. Her logo is a classic idea with a modern twist:

One of my favorite things to do is to help horse professionals promote their business and services. Logo design, marketing materials including business cards, postcards and flyers. This is a design in progress that I am really liking! The B in EB Performance Horses is for the trainers adorable little girl so the playful B fits perfectly right now. One day when she is training side by side with her mom we can update that B to a stronger font. It’s the little things that make the difference!
There is something poetic about watching horses in a pasture. I especially like the way these geldings got in sync so quickly and stayed in sync as they raced playfully raced around the pasture. I am thinking of making notecards or holiday cards out of this session. What do you think?
Thought I would give you a glimpse into the design process. My client for this job is Kari Hoyer Farrier Service- she a the premier farrier in western WI and she does quite a bit of specialty shoeing and works with some pretty amazing horses (ok mine… LOL) but anyway here is how we got to where we are so far.
1) colors/ ideas/ things we like: feet, muted earthier jewel tones
2) First ideas- horseshoe, fonts, close but not quite there…
3) Ahhh this more like it!4) And here is the finished business card:
Like what you see? Let me know what I can design for you! Here is a sneak peak at the website I am working on for Kari: website mock up
Loved photographing the talented Olympian Heather Blitz again this year- great people, beautiful horses:
My “other home” is Lost Creek Ranch in Beldenville WI. Lost Creek Ranch is a 501(c)3 Horse Rescue that rehabs and retrains horses and gives them a forever home. Each year I design a calendar and here are a few favorite pages from the 2014 edition. You can see more and order your copy through me or Lost Creek Ranch:
Personal post! I know I don’t post much about my personal life on my blog but I just had to share this pic taken of me and one of the horses I ride and have worked with since he was an unstarted 2 yr old. Nickers is growing into a sweet, kind horse with a huge heart and I couldn’t be prouder! We have competed in two dressage shows now and this photo is us after his second show which he won beating the next highest horse by 7%! Starting to see signs of a mature horse with a brain and some talent emerging- and look at that face 🙂 horse love…
Every year I dedicate one day to photographing families and individuals on location at Lost Creek Ranch in Beldenville WI (about 45 mins east of St Paul). 1oo% of the $50 session fee is donate to the ranch (a 501(c)3 non profit horse rescue). Here are some favorite shots from this years shoot:
Love my job when I can spread the word about people like Alana who is an amazing chiropractor and helps horses and their humans everyday. Here is a preview of Alana’s new business card as well as a shot of her at work:
