Horses were my first creative inspiration as a child… I would draw them for hours! It is truly an honor to be invited into barns to meet the horses and riders and to capture their relationship. From grand show horses to backyard ponies there is always something special between horse and rider.  A bond of trust, an unspoken language that is captured in the blink of an eye.

Equine sessions on location within one hour of the Twin Cities and Western Wisconsin start at $129.  Group rates for multiple sessions at the same barn or location. Contact Ruth for details. 651.335.8198

Wow! It’s been a busy late summer and fall! I am finally getting caught up and wanted to share some of my favorite images

with you- hope you enjoy them!

What’s Happening Now? Class of 2012 High School Senior Sessions

Do you know a 2014 senior who loves horses? I am looking for senior reps who get FREE sessions and their own postcards to hand out to all their friends- for every friend who also books a session with Happily Ever After the senior gets studio credit towards any package they choose. It’s a win-win!

Here are some current faves from a few recent High School Senior Equine Sessions- enjoy!
